KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Royals selected the contract of right-hander Casey Coleman from Triple-A Omaha and designated outfielder Justin Maxwell for assignment before Friday night’s game against Baltimore.

The 26-year-old Coleman was released by the Cubs on April 14 and signed the next day by the Royals. He appeared in seven games for Omaha, going 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA.

Coleman is the son of former big league pitcher Joe Coleman, who won 142 games in the 1960s and ‘70s, and the grandson of Joe Coleman Sr., who won 52 games in the 1940s and ‘50s.

Maxwell was acquired last July in a trade with Houston. He was just 4 of 29 this season, and had been squeezed out of the outfield rotation by more productive hitters.
