Royals | Johnny Giavotella optioned; Chris Getz, Kelvin Herrera coming up

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 15:36:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Johnny Giavotella and RP Everett Teaford have been optioned to Triple-A Omaha. The club plans to recall 2B Chris Getz and RP Kelvin Herrera to replace them.

Fantasy Tip: Giavotella was called up just a few weeks ago, but he's done nothing to give KC the impression that he's the solution at the keystone. Getz probably isn't, either, although he posted a .313/.313/.422 slash line in 14 games at Omaha following his demotion last month. Perhaps he's worth an AL-only roster spot. Herrera may be, if he's ready to avoid walking people and serving up home run balls. The right-hander has a bright future as a back-end reliever, but this year has been a struggle.
