 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Royals placed injured outfielder Reggie Sanders on the 15-day disabled list and recalled outfielder Joey Gathright from Triple-A Omaha, part of a series of moves the club made on Wednesday.
Kansas City also recalled reliever Ryan Braun and optioned right-hander Leo Nunez, who made another exceptional spot start only to be optioned back to the minors. Nunez was sent to Omaha to make room for starter Kyle Davies, who the Royals acquired from Atlanta on Tuesday.
Sanders, who re-injured his left hamstring, played in eight games since returning from a 2 1/2 month stint on the disabled list two weeks ago. He's hitting .315 with two homers in 24 games.
He is expected to miss four to six weeks.
Gathright batted .315 in 25 games with the Royals before being sent back to Omaha on July 16 to make room for Sanders. He was 15-for-37 since his demotion.
Nunez heads back to Omaha despite tossing six shutout innings against Texas on Sunday. He got a no-decision in his first start against the Boston Red Sox, and has allowed only one run on nine hits in 10 innings.
Davies, 4-8 with a 5.76 ERA in 17 starts with the Braves, will make his Royals debut Friday against the Yankees.
Braun will be making his fourth appearance with the Royals this season. The right-hander has a 7.88 ERA in 16 innings.
