Dustin Pedroia had four hits to extend his streak to 11 straight at-bats before bouncing into a double play with a chance to tie the major-league record and the Boston Red Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 8-3 on Saturday night.
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) – The Kansas City Royals have plucked left-handed pitcher Patrick Schuster off waivers from the San Diego Padres.
The Royals also sent catcher Adam Moore to the Padres on Tuesday for cash considerations.
Schuster, who has not pitched above Class A, was placed on the 40-man major league roster. To clear roster space for Schuster, the Royals designated for assignment outfielder Carlos Peguero.
The 23-year-old Schuster had a 1.83 ERA in 55 games last year for Visalia in the California League. He struck out 45, allowed 30 hits, and walked 18 in 44 1-3 innings.
