Royals' Drew Butera: Set for decreased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers, 610 Sports Radio reports.

Butera had been starting semi-regularly to start the season, but he'll move back into a bench role with Salvador Perez back from the disabled list. The 34-year-old can be dropped in nearly every league now given how frequently Perez suits up behind the plate.

Royals' Eric Stout: Joins big club Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stout was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Stout will take Justin Grimm's spot on the active roster and in the bullpen for the time being, as Grimm was sent to the DL on Tuesday with lower back stiffness. The 25-year-old Stout owns an unremarkable 4.70 ERA and 6:5 K:BB through 7.2 innings of relief with Omaha this season, though he posted a much more respectable 2.99 ERA across 69.1 innings with the Storm Chasers in 2017. Look for him to fill a middle-relief role during his time with the Royals.

Royals' Paulo Orlando: Heads back to Omaha
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orlando was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Orlando enjoyed a stretch of increased playing time, but with Alex Gordon returning from the disabled list, the 32-year-old will head back to the minors. His stats in the minors have been fine, but Orlando hasn't been able to produce in the big leagues the past two seasons, putting up a batting average below the Mendoza line each of the past two years.

Royals' Justin Grimm: Lands on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimm was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with lower back stiffness.

It's unclear when Grimm picked up the injury, but it could help explain his recent struggles. Over his last five outings, Grimm has allowed 16 runs over just 2.2 innings of work, walking eight batters while striking out just two. He'll get some time off to recover, though it's unclear when exactly he'll be ready to return at this point. In the meantime, Eric Stout was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move and will take Grimm's spot in the bullpen.

Royals' Cameron Gallagher: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Gallagher is no longer needed as the team's backup catcher with Salvador Perez coming off the disabled list, so he'll head back to the minors to serve as organizational depth. He hit just .208/.240/.292 across 25 plate appearances with the big club.
