The contending Kansas City Royals quickly moved to fill a gap, getting infielder Jamey Carroll in a trade with the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
The Twins will receive either a player to be named or cash for the 39-year-old veteran.
Earlier in the day, the Royals put infielder Miguel Tejada on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf and took All-Star catcher Salvador Perez off the concussion list.
Carroll singled and scored for the Twins in their 5-2 win over the White Sox. He is hitting .230 with nine RBI.
Never miss a local story.
“If I can go there and contribute in a positive way, I know the team is playing extremely well right now and they have a bunch of good young guys and some great pitching,” Carroll said. “It should be exciting to get over there and get in that clubhouse.”
Minnesota will make a corresponding roster move on Monday.
