Davies heads to DL with shoulder impingement
KANSAS CITY -- Right-handed starter Kyle Davies was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Royals on Monday because of right shoulder impingement. The move is retroactive to last Tuesday.

Left-handed reliever Everett Teaford is being recalled from Triple-A Omaha to take Davies' spot on the 25-man roster for Tuesday night's game against Baltimore.

Davies was scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday at Cleveland, prompting manager Ned Yost to return to a five-man rotation after using six starters for the last month.

In 13 starts this season, Davies was 1-9 with a 6.75 ERA. He missed 6 1/2 weeks earlier this year because of shoulder inflammation.

Teaford had one save and a 2.25 ERA in 17 relief appearances this season for the Royals. In 16 games for Omaha, he was 3-2 with a 3.34 ERA.
