Terrance Gore’s broken jaw should not sideline him long and was not as bad as initially feared, Royals manager Ned Yost said.

“He’s not going to miss any extended time,” Yost said.

Gore was hit in the face with a pitch during a minor-league game last week. Yost indicated that the break occurred on the other side of Gore’s jaw as a result of the impact.

The team classified Gore’s injury as “play to tolerance,” which means he can return to action when he can handle the discomfort.

“He doesn’t need to have it wired shut or anything like that,” Yost said.
