Royals Make Several Roster Moves

SURPRISE, AZ (March 25, 2012) — The Kansas City Royals made eight roster moves in Major League Spring Training camp this morning.  Following the moves, the Royals now have 37 players in Major League camp, including catchers Salvador Perez and Manuel Pina, who are both on the 60-day Disabled List.

Five players were returned to minor league camp: right-handed pitcher Zach Miner, catcher Cody Clark, infielders Tony Abreu and Irving Falu, and outfielder Greg Golson.  Golson was then traded to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for cash considerations.

In addition, right-handed pitcher Vin Mazzaro, infielder Johnny Giavotella and outfielder Jarrod Dyson were optioned to Triple-A Omaha.
