Sunday Notes: Royals Activate Tim Collins From DL

The Kansas City Royals have activated LHP Tim Collins from the 15-Day disabled list and optioned RHP Aaron Brooks to Triple-A Oklahoma in a corresponding move:

Collins, 24, was placed on the disabled list after being diagnosed with a flexor strain in his elbow. He threw just one inning before being placed on the disabled list, allowing four earned runs.

Brooks, 24, allowed six earned runs in two innings against the Tigers in his lone appearance thus far in 2014.
