Royals Bring Back Robinson Tejeda, Send Kanekoa Texeira To Disabled List

The Kansas City Royals made a roster move on Sunday recalling top setup man Robinson Tejeda and sending Kanekoa Texeira to the disabled list.

The Royals were understandably pleased to get Tejeda back.

Ned Yost on Tejeda's return:

"Tejeda threw the ball really well (Saturday in a simulated inning)," manager Ned Yost said. "We were debating whether to send him out on a rehab (assignment) or just activate him. He’s ready to go, so what’s the difference?"

Tejeda had a strained tendon at the end of July.

Tejeda on his return:

"I’m not going to say I’m going to be able to go out there and just throw 96 or 98 (mph) on every pitch like before," Tejeda said. "But I feel I’m got some power."

"It’s been there for a little while," Texeira said, "but I was just trying to stick it out until the end of the season. It’s gotten worse as I’ve gone along."

Texeira's disabled list stint is retroactive to Saturday. He went down with a strained elbow.

Here's Yost on Texeira's DL stint:

"Texeira’s had issues with this off and on," Yost said. "Before it was forearm tightness. We’d give him two or three days (off), and it would generally go away. This time, it was a little more extensive. It was his forearm and down into his elbow. It’s something where I think he’d be ready to pitch in another week or so. But with the state of our bullpen here lately, the best thing to do was to go ahead and protect him and get another arm in here."
