Royals' Billy Burns: Shipped back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

Burns' stay on the active roster was brief, as he pinch ran a couple times and went just 1-for-4 at the plate. With the Royals wanting more pitching depth in KC, the speedster will head back to the minors to allow Jake Junis to rejoin the big-league club. Burns could find his way back to the majors soon if the team's pitching situation improves or if another injury strikes the major-league outfield.

Royals' Billy Burns: Returns to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

Burns will assume Jorge Soler's spot on the active roster after the latter was optioned to Omaha in a corresponding move. Soler had difficultly finding at-bats behind the outfield triumvirate of Alex Gordon, Lorenzo Cain and Jorge Bonifacio, and it's likely that the speedy Burns will run into a similar issue. He's expected to provide most of his usefulness as a pinch runner or late-inning defensive replacement.

Royals' Billy Burns: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Burns came off the bench in three games during his first stint with the Royals this season, but with the team's outfield starters enjoying sound health, he wouldn't have been in line for regular at-bats anytime soon. The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres to fill Burns' spot on the active roster.

Royals' Billy Burns: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns was recalled from Triple-A Omaha prior to Saturday's game.

The Royals need a versatile, speedy bench outfielder in the short term, and Burns fits the bill. He was hitting .246/.358/.275 with 13 stolen bases and zero home runs in 165 plate appearances at Triple-A. Jorge Soler was sent to Triple-A as a corresponding move.

Royals' Billy Burns: Returns from thumb injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns (thumb) was activated from the 7-day disabled list Sunday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Burns landed on the disabled list Tuesday after spraining his thumb during a game with Triple-A Omaha. He was able to recover quickly and will rejoin the fold in Omaha on Sunday. The speedy outfielder is currently sporting an 89 wRC+ with nine stolen bags through his first 29 minor-league contests.
