KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Kansas City Royals recalled right-hander Brian Bannister from Triple-A Omaha to start Tuesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox.
Bannister, facing the White Sox for the first time, will make his seventh major league start. He was 1-1 with a 2.61 ERA in four starts at Omaha.
His father, Floyd Bannister, was 16-14 for the Royals in 1988-89. The two are the third father-son combination in club history, behind Hal and Brian McRae and John and Dusty Wathan.
To make room on the roster, the Royals optioned left-hander Neal Musser to Omaha. Musser made two short relief appearances since being called up Friday, with no record and a 0.00 ERA.
