Royals call up Cuthbert, demote Owings

The Kansas City Royals announced two rosters changes on Friday afternoon. 

Cheslor Cuthbert was called up from Triple A Omaha, while Chris Owings was designated for assignment. 

Owings has struggled offensively in 2019. He has 18 hits in 135 plate appearances. Owings also struck out 4 times in the Royals 4-2 win over the Rangers on Thursday night. 

Cuthbert joins the team after batting .310 with eight home runs and 35 RBI in 51 games with Omaha.
