Royals’ Byrd out for year

September 22, 2001


— Kansas City Royals right-hander Paul Byrd is out for the year after having a second MRI exam on his ailing right shoulder.

Results from the first scan were inconclusive because of residual scar tissue from surgery last August to repair a torn labrum, so dye was injected this time for a clearer picture.

The latest scans will be sent to doctors who performed Byrd's surgery to see if there is new damage.
