Dayton Moore has unleashed The Process.
Eric Hosmer gets the call from Omaha and Kila Ka’aihue is optioned back to Triple-A. To make room on the roster, the Royals move Jason Kendall to the 60-day DL.
Gut reaction: This is great for the Royals. Hosmer is raking and this is deserved. Sucks for Kila, though. The team just never gave him a fair shake. I know that’s a somewhat controversial stance, but one month of a season isn’t enough time. And the Royals wasted two seasons where they could have (and should have) been looking at him. Too late now.
