KANSAS CITY -- The Royals made a couple of roster moves within the organization.

On Saturday night, the club reinstated catcher Manny Pina from the 60-day disabled list and optioned him to Double-A Northwest Arkansas. To make room on the 40-man roster for Pina, the Royals moved right-hander Felipe Paulino from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

Pina underwent surgery on his right knee in February, while Paulino had Tommy John surgery earlier this month and will miss the remainder of the season.
