It has been a rough season for the Kansas City Royals, and an even rougher one for Cam Gallagher. After showing some promise last season, hitting over .280, Gallagher has spent 2021 struggling though bad play and hampered by injuries.

And his latest injury is landing him on the IL with left knee inflammation. The Royals have called up pitcher Tyler Zubar to take his place.

Cam Gallagher Injury Update

Gallagher is slashing an underwhelming .202/.262/.277 on the season. With Salvador Perez having one of the best seasons ever for a catcher ahead of him, this loss won't be noticed much. But with the way the Royals' and Gallagher's season is going, it might be best to just shut him down for the year and let him get a healthy reset heading into 2022.
