KC OF Guillen late from Dominican, out of lineup

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Royals right fielder Jose Guillen was not on hand for Kansas City's game against Tampa Bay on Friday night because he was late getting back from the Dominican Republic.

Manager Trey Hillman said Guillen was delayed because his son was ill at their home in the Dominican. Hillman said Guillen, who is hitting .243 nine homers and 37 RBIs, was expected to be in the lineup for Saturday night's game.
