Royals place Crisp on disabled list

Sunday, June 14, 2009 | 7:58 p.m. CDT

KANSAS CITY — Coco Crisp was placed on the 15-day disabled list today with a sore right shoulder, joining six other Kansas City Royals on the injury list.

Crisp played in just five games since May 26 and does not have an extra-base hit since a May 14 triple against Baltimore.

The Royals recalled utility player Tug Hulett from Triple-A Omaha.

Crisp was acquired in Nov. 29 trade with the Boston Red Sox for relief pitcher Ramon Ramirez. Other Royals on the disabled list are third baseman Alex Gordon, catcher John Buck, shortstop Mike Aviles and right-handed pitchers Sidney Ponson, Doug Waechter and Robinson Tejeda.
