Royce Lewis Is Indefatigable

The Minnesota Twins’ Royce Lewis in center field experiment famously lasted only three innings. Kansas City Royals third baseman Emmanuel Rivera put a charge into a Sonny Gray curveball. Lewis tracked it down as it hurdled toward the warning track in right-center and snagged it with a leaping grab.

Royce Lewis out for rest of the season with knee injury

(Minneapolis, MN) -- Royce Lewis' season has been cut short for a second-straight year. The Twins announced on Friday that their top prospect has torn his A-C-L again. Lewis suffered the injury when he ran into the wall in centerfield during a May 29th Twins game. He had surgery to repair the same ligament in February of 2021. Lewis will miss the rest of this season, and is expected to return to the team during 2023. He hit .300 with two home runs and five R-B-I during his first taste of the big leagues this year.
