DETROIT (AP) - The Kansas City Royals have recalled right-handed reliever Jesse Chavez from Triple-A Omaha.

Chavez has pitched only one inning with the Royals this season, on June 5 against Minnesota. He allowed two runs, three hits and a walk.

Chavez went 5-5 with a 5.89 ERA in 51 games last year with the Royals and Atlanta Braves.

Kansas City manager Ned Yost says he anticipates more September call-ups, but the franchise doesn't want to interfere with Omaha's ability to compete in the Pacific Coast League playoffs.
