Royals put Dyson on disabled list

Bring up Lough

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Kansas City Royals placed center fielder Jarrod Dyson on the disabled list with a sprained right ankle Friday and recalled outfielder David Lough from Triple-A Omaha.

The speedy Dyson hurt his ankle Wednesday night against the Angels while attempting to scale the outfield wall and rob Mike Trout of a home run. He was forced to leave the game in the eighth inning and an examination by the medical staff revealed the sprain.

Dyson was hitting .268 with a homer and eight RBI, but had provided a spark for a struggling offense with his ability to cause problems on the base paths.

Lough was hitting .340 with six doubles, three triples and three homers for the Storm Chasers, and had a 16-game hitting streak that ended May 8.
