Royals reinstate Meche, Fields from disabled list, call up catcher Lucas May from Omaha

The Kansas City Royals have reinstated pitcher Gil Meche and infielder Josh Fields from the 60-day disabled list.

The Royals also said Wednesday they've called up catcher Lucas May from Omaha.

Pitcher Luke Hochevar and outfielder David DeJesus were moved to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster.

Meche has missed 86 games with right shoulder bursitis after going 0-4 with a 6.66 ERA in nine starts. He'll work out of the bullpen.
