4/17/2015 Reymond Fuentes, CF (KC), CF
The Royals have recalled Fuentes from Triple-A Omaha and optioned outfielder Terrance Gore to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Analysis: The 24-year-old Fuentes was acquired from San Diego last November for minor league pitcher Kyle Bartsch. He was 8 for 18 with a double in his first six games in Omaha.
