Brian Flynn suffered a broken rib and other unspecified injuries after falling through the roof of his barn in the days before reporting to camp.

Making his first start for the Royals, Brian Flynn gave up three runs in 2 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Indians.

Flynn was on a pitch count tonight after spending the last month in the Royals pen, but the team was hoping for more than this. The word going in was that he wasn't guaranteed anything beyond the one start. We'd like to see the Royals stick with him for a little while, but they have alternatives.

Brian Flynn will start Tuesday's game against the Indians.

He'll take Chris Young's spot in the starting rotation. The left-hander has performed well in a middle relief role this year, compiling a 2.39 ERA over 13 appearances. Flynn isn't guaranteed another start, so he'll need a strong performance Tuesday to keep his spot in the rotation. The Royals could be in the market for a starting pitcher at the trade deadline.
