Tuesday, June 19, 2012
HOUSTON (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have placed second baseman Chris Getz on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left leg.
Getz was injured in the first inning of Sunday's 15-inning win over St. Louis while trying to get to a single by Carlos Beltran.
Getz is hitting .290 with eight RBIs and six stolen bases in 36 games this season.
Also Monday, the Royals recalled right-hander Louis Coleman and left-hander Tommy Hottovy from Triple-A Omaha to bolster an overworked bullpen. They optioned right-hander Nate Adcock to Omaha to make room on the roster for Hottovy.
