In a corresponding move, the Royals recalled left-handed pitcher Eric Skoglund from Triple-A Omaha before Saturday's game against the Cleveland Indians.

Feliz signed a one-year, $5.35 million deal with the Milwaukee Brewers in the offseason, but was released on June 19 after he went 1-5 with a 6.00 ERA, 21 strikeouts and 15 walks in 27 innings, while allowing eight home runs.

The Royals signed him on June 22, and he is 1-0 with a 4.74 ERA for Kansas City. He last pitched on Aug. 13, when he went one inning without allowing a run or a hit.

Skoglund is 1-1 with a 5.59 ERA in three starts with the Royals this season.

He has a 4-5 record and a 4.07 ERA in 20 starts this year for the Storm Chasers, which includes going 2-1 with a 3.33 ERA since being optioned to Omaha on July 3.
