Heath was recalled by the Royals on Saturday. Heath made his big-league debut in late July and went 2-for-6 at the plate over five games before suffering a hamstring injury. He was optioned immediately upon his activation from the injured list at the end of August but should now be set to fill a bench role down the stretch.
Heath (hamstring) was activated from the injured list and optioned off the Royals' active roster Monday. Heath got into the first five games of his big-league career prior to suffering a left hamstring strain, going 2-for-6 at the plate while stealing a pair of bases. He could return in a part-time role at some point down the stretch.
Heath (hamstring) has recently been participating in workouts at the alternate training site, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports. The 26-year-old landed on the injured list Aug. 8 with a left hamstring strain, but it appears he's nearing full health. Heath may be added to the five-man taxi squad rather than rejoining the active roster once activated.
Heath was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain Saturday. Heath was removed from Friday's game against the Twins after he injured his hamstring while attempting to steal a base in the third inning. The injury is serious enough to warrant a trip to the injured list, but it's unclear whether he'll spend more than the minimum 10 days on the shelf. Since Heath was serving in a depth role, the move shouldn't have too much of an effect on the Royals' lineup. Right-hander Chance Adams was recalled to take Heath's place on the active roster.
Heath was recalled by the Royals on Tuesday. He will be making his major-league debut whenever he gets into a game with the Royals. The 26-year-old stole 60 bases across the two highest levels of the minors last season, though his .255/.345/.387 slash line was nothing special, and his 30.3 percent strikeout rate casts doubt on his ability to hit big-league pitching.
