The SportsXchange

The Kansas City Royals placed infielder Miguel Tejada on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf.

It was one of several moves the club made Sunday.

Tejada, 39, was injured while diving for a ball in the seventh inning on Saturday against the Boston Red Sox.

Tejada is batting .288 with three homers and 20 RBI in 53 games.

The Royals also activated All-Star catcher Salvador Perez from the seven-day concussion list.

The club recalled infielder Irving Falu from Class AAA Omaha. He batted .341 in 24 games last year.

In a corresponding move, Kansas City optioned left-hander Donnie Joseph to Omaha.

The Royals designated catcher Brett Hayes for assignment and activated right-handed pitcher Wade Davis from the family emergency leave.
