Kansas City Royals 2B Johnny Giavotella is expected to be recalled from the minors and will likely join the lineup Wednesday, May 9. "He's another right-handed bat," general manager Dayton Moore said, "and we need another right-handed bat over the next several days with all of the left-handed pitchers we're expecting to face." The Royals may decide to place SP Jonathan Sanchez (biceps) on the disabled list because he's dealing with biceps tendonitis, which the team thinks might be the reason for his drop in velocity and effectiveness. If that happens, Ps Luis Mendoza, Nathan Adcock or Vin Mazzaro could be candidates for the rotation. Giavotella is a right-handed option, so he won't necessarily become the starter at second base. He was hitting .331 with five home runs and 25 RBIs in 31 games for Triple-A Omaha.
