Lineup change for the Royals, and it’s an unusual one
Third baseman Alberto Callaspo was in the lineup, but he’s been traded to the Angles for Sean O’Sullivan — the guy who started against the Yankees on Tuesday — plus minor league lefty Will Smith.
Former Yankee Wilson Betemit will take over at third base and fill Callaspo’s No. 6 spot in the lineup. The Royals have filled the open roster spot by activating Rick Ankiel from the disabled list. He is at Yankee Stadium and will be available off Kansas City’s bench.
