Royals recalled RHP Casey Coleman from Triple-A Omaha.

Coleman had two different stints in the majors earlier this season. He will fill a middle relief role.
Sep 1 - 2:16 PM

Royals recalled OF Lane Adams from Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Adams hit .269/.352/.427 with 11 homers and 38 stolen bases in 105 games this season at Omaha. He'll act as a bench bat, pinch-runner, and utility outfielder in KC.
Sep 1 - 2:15 PM

Royals recalled C Francisco Pena from Triple-A Omaha.

Pena will serve as an emergency third catcher and bench bat for the Royals for the stretch run. The 24-year-old had 27 homers in 96 games this season at Triple-A, but that came alongside a .240 average and .280 OBP.
Sep 1 - 2:14 PM

Royals recalled INF Johnny Giavotella from Triple-A Omaha.

Giavotella will give the Royals some additional infield depth for the final month of the regular season. He is a .235/.273/.329 career hitter in the major leagues.
Sep 1 - 2:11 PM

Royals activated 1B Eric Hosmer from the 15-day disabled list.

Hosmer took about a month to heal a stress fracture in his right hand. The Royals are struggling for offense at the moment and need their talented first baseman to finally hit his stride over the final month of 2014.
Sep 1 - 2:08 PM

Royals purchased the contract of OF Carlos Peguero from Triple-A Omaha.

Peguero will function as a utility outfielder for the Royals down the stretch. He is not fantasy-relevant.
Sep 1 - 2:02 PM

Royals purchased the contract of LHP Brandon Finnegan from Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Finnegan was the 17th overall pick in this year's MLB Amateur Draft and skyrocketed through the Royals' minor league system, posting a 1.33 ERA and 26/4 K/BB ratio in 27 innings between High-A Wilmington and Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He'll be a weapon in the Kansas City bullpen.
Sep 1 - 2:01 PM

Royals designated RHP Blake Wood for assignment.

Wood was claimed off waivers from the Indians in June but struggled badly for the Royals' Triple-A affiliate, yielding 14 runs -- 13 earned -- in 18 1/3 innings.
Sep 1 - 1:59 PM

Royals designated LHP Chris Dwyer for assignment.

Dwyer posted an ugly 5.59 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 66 innings this season at Triple-A. He turns 27 next April.
Sep 1 - 1:57 PM

Danny Duffy delivered a strong start in a no-decision against the Indians on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Duffy struck out six on the night while walking three. He certainly pitched well enough to earn his ninth victory in this one, but his defense and the offense behind him didn’t do him any favors. He’ll carry an outstanding 2.42 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 108/50 K/BB ratio into Saturday’s start against the Yankees in New York.
Sep 1 - 12:23 AM

Royals purchased the contract of Terrance Gore from Triple-A Omaha, optioned to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Gore, now on the 40-man roster, will be recalled after Sunday's game against the Indians. He hasn't yet developed with the bat as the Royals had hoped, but will be a valuable bench addition as a pinch-runner and late-inning defensive replacement.
Aug 31 - 7:14 PM

Josh Willingham (back) is not in the Royals starting lineup for Sunday night's tilt against the Indians.

Willingham has been battling stiffness in his back in recent days. The Royals are hopeful that he will be able to return to the lineup on Tuesday for the second game of their series against the Rangers.
Aug 31 - 5:14 PM

Omar Infante (shoulder) is back in the Royals' starting lineup Saturday night against the Indians.

Infante had been sidelined since Monday with a lingering right shoulder injury and acknowledged Saturday that he is still experiencing discomfort. But the veteran second baseman wants to play through the pain as the Royals try to reach the playoffs for the first time since 1985. "It’s not going to subside," manager Ned Yost said. "Forget it subsiding. He’s probably at about 80 percent right now, which is good enough to play."
Aug 30 - 6:14 PM

Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Colon was sent back out to make room on the active roster for Jayson Nix who was claimed off waivers from the Pirates. He's expected to rejoin the Royals at some point in early September.
Aug 30 - 12:42 PM

Jason Vargas fell to 10-7 on the year after allowing four runs over six innings Friday against the Indians.

Vargas gave up 10 hits in the loss and three out of the four runs scored in the third inning. He has now lost back-to-back starts, allowing six runs on 21 hits and four walks over 12 innings in the process. The southpaw now owns a 3.27 ERA on the year and will look to get back on the winning side when he faces the Rangers next week.
