Royals promote Hernandez from Omaha

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Royals have purchased infielder Luis Hernandez's contract from Triple-A Omaha and placed him in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels.

Hernandez hit .204 in 22 games with Kansas City before being designated for assignment on July 7. He cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Omaha.

Hernandez subbed for second baseman Alberto Callaspo on Sunday. Callaspo was held out of the lineup for the second straight day after fouling a pitch off his right ankle Friday.
