Royals place Miguel Tejada on DL
Tejada was injured while diving for a ball in the seventh inning on Saturday. The 39-year old was hitting .288 in 53 games and had won the starting second base job.
The Royals recalled infielder Irving Falu, who hit .341 in 24 games last season, from Triple A-Omaha and optioned left-handed pitcher Donnie Joseph, who threw two scoreless innings Saturday, to their Pacific Coast League affiliate. The Royals designated for assignment catcher Brett Hayes and activated right-handed pitcher Wade Davis from the family emergency leave list.
