KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Kansas City Royals sent pitcher Danny Christensen to Detroit on Tuesday to complete the trade that brought right-hander Roman Colon to Kansas City in midseason.
The Tigers got a player to be named for Colon on July 13. Christensen, a 24-year-old lefty, was 2-15 with a 6.21 ERA in 27 games for Double-A Wichita.
Kansas City also reinstated Colon, right-handers Luke Hudson and Joe Nelson, and infielders Angel Sanchez and Ryan Shealy from the 60-day disabled list.
Nelson, who missed the 2007 season after having shoulder surgery in March, was then designated for assignment. He was 1-1 with nine saves and a 4.43 ERA in 43 appearances with the Royals in 2006.
