Royals recall 3B Moustakas, activate LH Bueno

TORONTO (AP) -

The Kansas City Royals have recalled third baseman Mike Moustakas from Triple-A Omaha and activated left-hander Francisley Bueno from the 15-day disabled list.

Infielder Danny Valencia was placed on the 15-day DL with a sore left hand, and right-hander Aaron Brooks was optioned to Omaha.

Moustakas was at third base and batting eighth against the Blue Jays on Sunday. The four-year veteran and one-time top prospect was batting just .152 with four home runs and 17 RBIs when he was demoted to the minor leagues earlier this month. He appeared in eight games with Omaha, batting .355 with one homer and eight RBIs.

Valencia injured his hand on a swing on May 24, and missed five games before returning to the lineup Friday and going hitless in two games.
