ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -The Kansas City Royals called up four players from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the team designated right-hander Jason Shiell for assignment and transferred outfielder Reggie Sanders to the 60-day disabled list.
The Royals recalled right-hander Luke Hochevar and first baseman Justin Huber, and purchased the contracts of catcher Paul Phillips and first baseman Craig Brazell.
Hochever, the top overall pick in the 2006 draft, was 1-3 with a 5.12 ERA in 10 starts at Omaha. The team will likely use him out of the bullpen.
Brazell hit .307 with 32 homers and 76 RBIs at Triple-A, and Huber was hitting .276 with 18 homers and 68 RBIs. Phillips hit .238 at Omaha.
