by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Dyson does not have a timetable to return for the Royals. 

"I don’t know anything yet," he said. "Maybe after (the club) comes back off the road (following a weekend series at Texas), I’ll know a lot more. I feel I’m going to be all right. I’ve made some pretty good progress and, hopefully, I’m back in the lineup within a couple of weeks."
