The Kansas City Royals activated 2B Chris Getz (knee) from the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 12, and optioned INF Irving Falu and SP Will Smith to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Getz is expected to be in a platoon with veteran Jamey Carroll at second base moving forward. Both players should only be relied on in AL-only leagues.

The Kansas City Royals acquired 2B Jamey Carroll from the Minnesota Twins Sunday, Aug. 11, in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations. Manager Ned Yost said Carroll will platoon at second base with 2B Chris Getz (knee) when he returns from the disabled list. Carroll also provides depth at third base and shortstop.
Fantasy Tip: Now that Miguel Tejada (calf) is also on the DL, Carroll should see the lion's share of playing time at the keystone until Getz returns. Carroll is handy as middle infield depth in AL-only leagues.

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe (head) said that he passed his initial concussion test but was still experiencing concussion-like symptoms prior to his placement on the seven-day disabled list. He said that he feels better today. He'll be re-evaluated on Friday, May 24, when he takes the ImPACT test, which determines whether he has a concussion or just showed the symptoms because of the initial blow to his head.
In corresponding moves, OF Darin Mastroianni (ankle) was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list and INF/OF Chris Colabello, 29, was recalled from Triple-A Rochester. This is Colabello's first call-up to the majors, and he received his first start on Wednesday, May 22.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Plouffe has a good chance to avoid an extended absence. Jamey Carroll is likely a candidate to play more often. Colabello is unlikely to have fantasy value.
