  • Kansas City brought up Donnie Joseph from the minors today, and the 25-year-old left-hander made his major league debut against the New York Yankees.
    Joseph took the roster spot of right-hander Wade Davis, who was put on the paternity leave list Thursday. Joseph was 3-3 with three saves and a 3.55 ERA this year for Triple-A Omaha. Selected by Cincinnati on the third round of the 2009 amateur draft, Joseph was acquired by the Royals last July 31 in the Jonathan Broxton trade.
    Joseph allowed a hit and a walk in one-third of an inning in his debut in the Royals' 8-4 loss to the Yankees today.
    Davis took the loss in Wednesday's 8-1 defeat. His wife Katelyn is expecting their first child.
    A player can be on the paternity leave list for up to three consecutive days.
