KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Kansas City Royals activated second baseman Mark Grudzielanek from the disabled list Friday and optioned outfielder Shane Costa to Triple-A Omaha.
Grudzielanek, the 2006 Gold Glove winner, had been out since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair cartilage damage on June 15 - his second surgery since March.
Grudzielanek was hitting .267 with four homers and 26 RBIS in 52 games. He hasn't played since experiencing tightness in the knee against St. Louis on June 12.
