Billy Butler is not in the Royals starting lineup on Monday.

Raul Ibanez is a lefty and will be hitting DH tonight against the Rangers right handed pitcher Colby Lewis. Butler will just have to sit this one out.

Royals return 1B Eric Hosmer from Triple-A Omaha and reinstate him from 15-day disabled list.

It took a month to make sure that the stress fracture in his right hand got back to 100 percent. The Royals thought that Josh Willingham would be their spot gap without Hosmer in the lineup but the offense continued to struggle. The Royals getting Hosmer back right now is perfect timing for the stretch run of the season.

Royals also recalled INF Johnny Giavotella, C Francisco Pena, OF Lane Adams and RHP Casey Coleman.

The Royals continue with their flood of activity for their late season stretch run for the playoffs. Kansas City is going all-in this season for the playoffs, calling up all of their young talent to make that final push to get into the "dance."

Royals P Chris Dwyer and P Blake Wood have been designated for assignment.

The Royals called up some young talent and had to send a few of their bullpen arms back down to the minors as they make a push for the playoffs for the first time since 1985.

Royals select contracts of OF Carlos Peguero and P Brandon Finnegan.

The Royals use their September call ups to bring up a big bat (Peguero) with 30 bombs at Triple-A Omaha and a young stud arm (Finnegan) for the stretch run of the season.

Royals selected the contract of P Brandon Finnegan and recalled OF Lane Adams. 

Finnegan could provide a little depth to the Royals bullpen this month, but Adams will probably only see emergency work. Maybe a pinch-hit or two.

Greg Holland allowed two unearned runs in the 10th inning Sunday, and will be on the hook Sept. 22nd when the suspended affair resumes action.

With two outs in the 10th inning, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis reached first on a fielding error by Billy Butler. Then Catcher Yan Gomes singled, and Lonnie Chisenhall followed up with two-run double before the game was suspended until sept. 22nd. Holland will be on the line for the loss when play resumes.

Alex Gordon went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI.

Gordon has been one of the MLB's hottest hitters, as he's now slugged six home runs in his last eleven games. For the season, he's slashing .280/.355/.457 with 18 home runs and 8 steals. He's been one of the league's most productive hitters and should cash in this offseason should be decline his option for 2015.

Danny Duffy pitched 6.2 innings Sunday night, giving up two runs (one earned), striking out six and walking three.

Despite a humble 8-11 win-loss record, Duffy has been extremely effective. For the season, he owns a stellar 2.42 ERA over 141 1/3 innings pitched. His pitching independent numbers suggest he's been lucky, however, so unless his mediocre strikeout 108/50 strikeout-walk ratio improves he's unlikely to repeat this degree of success in 2015.
