KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- First baseman Eric Hosmer was activated from the disabled list and first-round draft pick Brandon Finnegan was promoted from Double-A Northwest Arkansas in a flurry of roster moves by the Royals on Monday.

Hosmer, who had been out with a fractured right hand, was 3 for 10 in two rehab games for Triple-A Omaha. Designated hitter Billy Butler had started in his place.

Finnegan had a 1.33 ERA in three minor league appearances.

The Royals also purchased the contract of outfielder Carlos Peguero from Omaha and recalled left-hander Casey Coleman, infielder Johnny Giavotella, outfielder Lane Adams and catcher Francisco Pena from minor league affiliates.

In corresponding moves, left-hander Chris Dwyer and right-hander Blake Wood were designated for assignment.

The Royals open a series against Texas on Monday night.
