The Royals say infielder/outfielder Hunter Dozier has been recalled from Triple-A Omaha and will be available for Monday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays at 6:05 p.m.
Dozier will wear uniform No. 17.
The team also placed first baseman Lucas Duda on the 10-day disabled list with right foot plantar fasciitis. Duda will be eligible for reinstatement on May 24.
The 26-year-old Dozier who hails from Wichita Falls, Texas, was the Royals’ first-round selection in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft (eighth overall).
