Royals put Wang on DL, bolster relief corps for Yankees

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals placed right-hander Chien-Ming Wang on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis and made a series of roster moves to shore up their taxed bullpen before Wednesday night's game against the Yankees.

Kansas City recalled left-hander Scott Alexander and right-hander Brooks Pounders from Triple-A Omaha and optioned infielder Christian Colon to the same club.

Colon is likely to return when rosters are allowed to expand Thursday.
