CHICAGO (AP) - The Kansas City Royals have activated third baseman Mike Moustakas off the 15-day disabled list.

The Royals optioned Cheslor Cuthbert to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday after he hit .255 in 13 starts in place of Moustakas.

Moustakas was hitting .258 with seven home runs before a left thumb injury sidelined him this month. He went 2 for 8 with three strikeouts in two rehab games for Double-A Northwest Arkansas and rejoined the Royals on Friday.

Moustakas hit 22 homers in 2015 when he was an All-Star for the first time.
