KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Royals placed shortstop Adalberto Mondesi on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder injury.

In a series of moves announced prior to Wednesday's game, the Royals also recalled infielder Humberto Arteaga, activated left-handed pitcher Mike Montgomery, optioned right-hander Jake Newberry and traded outfielder Terrence Gore to the New York Yankees.

Mondesi injured his shoulder in the fifth inning of Tuesday's game against the White Sox when he attempted to make a diving catch on the warning track in shallow left field.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Mondesi will be evaluated in a week.
