Infielder swap: Royals recall Cuthbert, send down Coleman

The Kansas City Royals have recalled infielder Cheslor Cuthbert from Triple A Omaha. He will be in uniform for Friday night's 7:10 game against the Houston Astros. In a corresponding roster move, infielder Dusty Coleman was optioned to Omaha following last Thursday's game.

Cuthbert, 22, played in four games with the Royals just before the All-Star break, going 5 for 15 (.333) with a triple, a walk and two RBI. He played in this year's SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game and is batting .272 with 17 doubles, eight homers and 38 RBI with the Storm Chasers.
