Royals recalled LHP Brian Flynn from Triple-A Omaha; placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a left lat tear.

Brian Flynn will miss the next 3-5 months after being diagnosed with a torn lat muscle.

He doesn't need surgery, but the rehab is a long one. It's possible Flynn could be back at some point in August, but the Royals surely aren't counting on him this season now. The lefty didn't make the Opening Day roster despite a strong 2.57 ERA and 13/1 K/BB ratio over 14 innings in spring training.

Royals optioned LHP Brian Flynn to Triple-A Omaha.

Royals acquired LHP Brian Flynn and RHP Reid Redman from the Marlins in exchange for RHP Aaron Crow.

Flynn holds an 8.64 ERA over 25 innings at the big league level but has flashed some promise in the minors. He's a big left-hander who could either wind up as a back-end of the rotation starter or possible bullpen arm. Flynn will turn just 25 in April.

Brian Flynn made his first major league start of 2014 and struggled against the Pirates, as he was taken for five runs over four innings in a loss on Thursday.
