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