KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Kansas City Royals on Thursday bought the contract of right-handed reliever Jason Shiell from Triple-A Omaha.
Shiell, 30, takes the roster spot created by the release of right-hander Scott Elarton, who was released on Wednesday after giving up seven runs and six hits in 1 2-3 innings against the Yankees a day earlier.
Elarton, the Royals' opening day starter in 2006, was in the second year of a two-year, $8 million contract with the Royals. He came off the DL on Tuesday after sitting out 26 games with a sprained right foot.
With Omaha, he was 1-4 with two saves and a 4.70 ERA in 24 games, including seven starts.
