Royals’ Eric Hosmer, Scott Downs progressing from injuries

Scott Downs stepped on the Kauffman Stadium mound, Eric Hosmer dug in at the plate and progress was made on both injury fronts Monday. A cat scan revealed Hosmer’s fractured bone in his right wrist had healed to the point where “he can swing but not hit,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. Downs, on the disabled list since Aug. 25 because of a neck sprain, threw about 25 pitches.
