Royals Call Up Pitcher, Demote Terrance Gore

The Terrance Gore experiment is over for the Kansas City Royals -- at least for now. 

On Friday, the team announced that they demoted fleet-footed outfielder Terrance Gore in favor of left-hander Brian Flynn, who will likely make his Royals debut against the Cleveland Indians this weekend. 

Gore appeared in just four games for Kansas City this year, three times as a pinch runner. He stole two bases and struck out in his only at-bat for the team. While his early-season performance led many to believe he would stick with the Royals long-term, it's clear that K.C. is taking a more practical approach to the roster given the team's recent struggles. 

Flynn has pitched in the big leagues before, logging parts of the 2013 and 2014 season with the Miami Marlins. In six career MLB games (five starts), the 26-year-old has a 0-3 record and 8.64 ERA. He has a 3.94 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 16 innings pitching in relief for Triple-A Omaha this season.
