Royals Designate Humberto Quintero For Assignment

The Royals announced that they have designated Humberto Quintero for assignment.   In a related move, the team is set to recall outfielder Jason Bourgeois from Triple-A Omaha.

Kansas City acquired the catcher from Houston in March along with Bourgeois for left-hander Kevin Chapman and a player to be named later.  The trade was completed just over two weeks ago when the PTBNL turned out to be minor league outfielder D'Andre Toney.

Quintero, 32, hit .232/.257/.341 in 144 plate appearances for the Royals this season.
