The Royals recalled Junis from Triple-A Omaha to start Tuesday's game against Cleveland, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

The righty has pitched well in his last two outings for Omaha, striking out six and allowing three hits in 7.1 scoreless innings. Junis is unlikely to pitch deep into Tuesday's game, as it's his first big-league appearance since June 3 and he hasn't lasted more than 4.1 frames in an outing since returning from injury at Triple-A. He was unimpressive earlier this season with the Royals, posting a 5.19 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 34.2 innings.
