Royals closer Joakim Soria will miss at least this weekend's series against the Tigers with a sore shoulder, though an MRI revealed no structural damage.
"There is no structural damage," manager Trey Hillman said. "He's on special medication, and he's doing some exercises." The Royals say they don't plan to put him on the disabled list. Juan Cruz and Kyle Farnsworth will likely get save chances in Soria's absence, so grab Cruz for saves, Farnsworth for blown saves.
