Royals Claim Edinson Rincon Off Waivers

The Royals have claimed Edinson Rincon off waivers from the Padres, Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports (via Twitter).  The infielder has been optioned to Double-A and placed on the seven-day disabled list as he recovers from knee surgery.

Rincon suffered his injury during minor league Spring Training camp and hasn't appeared in any games at any level this season.  The Padres designated him for assignment last week and requested unconditional release waivers on Rincon on Monday.  Rincon, 22, has a .285/.355/.422 line in 2041 PA in the Padres' farm system since 2007, playing mostly third base but appearing in 27 games as a left fielder last season.
