Royals OF Brian Goodwin goes on DL with groin strain
CHICAGO (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have placed outfielder Brian Goodwin on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain.
Goodwin got hurt running the bases in the seventh inning of Saturday night’s 5-4 loss to the New York Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader. Goodwin is 8 for 17 with a homer and four RBIs in five games with Kansas City after he was acquired in a trade with Washington.
The Royals also promoted first baseman/outfielder Ryan O’Hearn from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday. Infielder Cheslor Cuthbert, who is out with a lower back strain, was transferred to the 60-day DL.
O’Hearn is serving as the designated hitter for Kansas City’s series opener against the Chicago White Sox. It’s his major league debut.
