The Royals designated Boxberger for assignment Wednesday.

Though Boxberger had turned in a palatable 3.77 ERA in 17 appearances since the beginning of May, his 1.40 WHIP and 5.7 BB/9 didn't paint as rosy a picture of his performance. He'll be replaced in the Kansas City bullpen and active roster by lefty Tim Hill, who was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.
