The Royals were busy on Friday making several roster moves.
They claimed right-handed pitcher Guillermo Moscoso from the Rockies and catcher Brett Hayes from the Marlins. They also lost right-handed reliever Blake Wood on waivers to the Cleveland Indians.
Kansas City designated three players for assignment: left-handed pitcher Tommy Hottovy, right-hander Jeremy Jeffress and outfielder Jason Bourgeois.
Two pitchers who had been on the 60-day disabled list were reinstated: left-hander Danny Duffy and right-hander Felipe Paulino. The Royals also sent catcher Manny Pina to Class AAA Omaha on outright assignment. Their roster now stands at 40.
