Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals placed infielder Danny Valencia on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a wrist injury and recalled third baseman Mike Moustakas from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding roster move.
Mike Moustakas has rejoined the Royals. Danny Valencia has been placed on the DL related to his hand/wrist.

Moustakas was demoted to Omaha on May 22 after batting just .152/.223/.320 over his first 139 plate appearances for Kansas City.
He showed signs of promise on the farm — hitting .355/.412/.548 with a homer and five RBI in 34 plate appearances – and the Royals hope this short stint of success can continue at the big league level.
