Getz lands on disabled list with lateral strain
HOUSTON -- The Royals placed infielder Chris Getz on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a lateral strain in his lower leg and optioned right-handed reliever Nate Adcock to Triple-A Omaha.

Kansas City recalled right-handed pitcher Louis Coleman and left-hander Tommy Hottovy from Omaha. Both will be available for Monday's series opener with the Astros at Minute Maid Park. The transactions give the Royals a 14-man pitching staff.

Getz left Sunday's game against the Cardinals in the first inning after going down while trying to field a ground ball. Manager Ned Yost said Getz could be ready in 7-10 days, but the Royals couldn't wait that long for him to get healthy.

Getz had come off the disabled list six days ago after missing 17 games with a left rib-cage contusion. He will be eligible for reinstatement on July 3.

Adcock has a 3.12 ERA in 26 innings for the Royals. He pitched two scoreless outings against the Cardinals, going 1 1/3 innings on Saturday and an inning on Sunday.

Coleman last pitched for the Royals on June 9, throwing a scoreless inning against the Pirates. Hottovy, from Park Hill South High School (Mo.) last pitched for the Royals on May 6. He has a 3.38 ERA in 5 1/3 innings.
