Also on Thursday, the Royals activated pitcher Scott Downs from the 15-day disabled list, where he landed Aug. 12 with a stiff neck.

The Royals recalled pitcher Michael Mariot from Triple-A Omaha and placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain and optioned pitcher Liam Hendricks to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.
