Royals activate Hosmer amid series of moves

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals made a flurry of roster moves Monday as they begin a September march toward the playoffs, activating first baseman Eric Hosmer from the disabled list and promoting first-round draft pick Brandon Finnegan from Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Hosmer fractured a bone in his right hand when he was hit by a pitch from Jon Lester on July 20. He tried to play through the injury before Kansas City ultimately shut him down, hoping that an extended period of rest would allow him to return for the final stretch.

Hosmer began swinging a bat just last week. He was 3 for 10 during a rehab stint at Triple-A Omaha, driving in the winning run on Saturday and hitting a homer on Sunday.
