Valencia activated off the DL

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Royals activated Danny Valencia off the disabled list Sunday and started him at third base against the Seattle Mariners.

Valencia went on the disabled list June 1 with a muscle strain in his left hand. He hit .246 with one home run and seven RBIs in 20 games before the injury. He went 3 for 11 with a home run, three walks in three rehab games with Triple-A Omaha.

The Royals optioned right-hander Louis Coleman, who was 1-0 with a 6.41 ERA in 18 relief appearances, to Omaha. The Royals are going with a 12-man pitching staff with Coleman's demotion.
