Royals option lefty Strahm to Triple-A Omaha

KANSAS CITY -- After a 2-5 start, the Royals are shaking up their roster a bit.

Kansas City announced it was optioning left-hander Matt Strahm to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday. After Monday's home opener, the club optioned outfielder Terrance Gore to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

In both cases, no corresponding move was announced.

Strahm was dominant as a rookie in 2016, posting a 1.23 ERA in 21 games.

But Strahm has recorded just four outs in three outings this season, giving up seven runs on four hits and six walks.
