Royals add Schwindel to season-opening 25-man roster
The Kansas City Royals announced their 25-man roster, highlighted by the presence of longtime minor league slugger Frank Schwindel, on Thursday in advance of Opening Day against the White Sox.
The Royals selected Schwindel from Triple-A Omaha, giving him his first stint on the major league roster.
To get down to the 25-man active roster limit, the Royals placed left-handers Danny Duffy (left shoulder impingement syndrome) and Brian Flynn (left UCL sprain) on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to March 25; placed right-hander Trevor Oaks (right hip surgery) on the 60-day IL, and reassigned right-handers Homer Bailey and Michael Ynoa, catcher Nick Dini, infielders Humberto Arteaga and Cheslor Cuthbert and infielder/outfielder Erick Mejia to the minor leagues.
The Royals host the White Sox at 3 p.m. Thursday.
