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."
