Cuthbert comes off DL; KC options Torres

The Royals activated third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert from the 10-day disabled list and optioned infielder Ramon Torres to Triple-A Omaha, the club announced Tuesday.

Cuthbert, who went 2-for-4 with a three-run double in Tuesday night's 10-3 loss to the Cardinals, had not appeared in a game for the Royals since June 25 while dealing with a left wrist sprain. The 24-year-old is batting .208 with one home run and 13 RBIs in 34 games for Kansas City this season.

Torres was hitting .242 with three doubles and three RBIs in 23 games for the big league club in 2017. He returns to Omaha, where he's hit .327 with five homers and 34 RBIs in 53 games for the Storm Chasers.
