The Kansas City Royals have recalled third baseman Mike Moustakas from Triple-A Omaha and activated left-hander Francisley Bueno from the 15-day disabled list.

Infielder Danny Valencia was placed on the 15-day DL with a sore left hand and right-hander Aaron Brooks was optioned to Omaha.

Moustakas was at third base and batting eighth against the Blue Jays on Sunday. He went 0-for-3 in the Royals' 4-0 loss. The four-year veteran and one-time top prospect was batting just .152 with four home runs and 17 RBIs when he was demoted to the minor leagues more than a week ago. He appeared in eight games with the Storm Chasers batting .355 with one homer and eight RBIs.

Valencia injured his hand on a swing May 24th and missed five games before returning to the lineup Friday and going hitless in two games.
