Kansas City Royals Call Up 2 Players

The Kansas City Royals are giving some new players a look, as Michael Massey and Sebastian Rivero have been called up to the major league roster.

It isn't too surprising to see Massey get a chance with the major league club after what transpired on deadline day. Whit Merrifield was of course traded and now that has opened up a spot for Massey. Royal fans should be excited about what he can do in the majors, as he's been excellent in the minors. On the year, he has 16 home runs and a .312 batting average in 87 games.

Rivero, on the other hand, will give the Royals another catch to work with. In 24 career MLB games over the last two seasons, he has zero home runs, three RBIs, and a .135 batting average.
