Tejeda day-to-day with injured calf

Tejeda day-to-day with injured calf

KANSAS CITY -- Royals reliever Robinson Tejeda is day-to-day after injuring his left calf muscle during pregame warmups Friday night at Kauffman Stadium.

Tejeda's injury -- though enough to make him unavailable for games Friday and Saturday night -- would most likely not place him on the disabled list, Royals manager Ned Yost said Saturday.

According to Yost, Tejeda was feeling better and more mobile Saturday.

"He strained his calf yesterday, so we're just kind of taking it day-to-day," Yost said. "I don't think it's going to be a DL issue. So we'll just wait."

After a rough start to the season, Tejeda has become a valuable contributor to the Royals' bullpen. Tejeda is 2-2 with a 5.57 ERA in 17 appearances this season. The righty picked up his second win of the season May 1 against the Tampa Bay Rays, when he tossed three perfect innings. Through 21 innings pitched, Tejeda has registered 18 strikeouts.
