CHICAGO (AP) _ The Kansas City Royals placed reliever Jason Grimsley on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday night with a strained stomach muscle and recalled right-hander Jeff Austin from Triple-A Omaha.
Grimsley got two outs Monday night against the White Sox before injuring his oblique muscle. He had an MRI exam Wednesday, and results were expected by Thursday.
Grimsley is 2-2 with a 4.01 ERA in 24 appearances this season. He has allowed 20 hits and walked 15 in 24 2-3 innings.
