Torn ligament puts Royals 2B on bench

Royals second baseman Carlos Febles will miss at least eight weeks because of a partly torn ligament in his right knee.

"He dove for a ball the other day and he started to develop some swelling," manager Tony Muser said. "Then they found the partial tear on the ligament on the outside of the knee."

Febles will be replaced on the roster by right-hander Cory Bailey, who had one save in five games at Triple-A Omaha. Luis Alicea will take over at second base.

PIRATES: Left-hander Terry Mulholland, sidelined since spraining a knee ligament in his first start for Pittsburgh, was activated from the 15-day disabled list.

The Pirates sent reliever Marc Wilkins to Triple-A Nashville to open a spot for Mulholland.

YANKEES: New York recalled Adrian "El Duquecito" Hernandez from Triple-A Columbus and optioned Scott Seabol to the Clippers.

Hernandez, a Cuban defector, was 0-1 with a 3.24 ERA in three starts at Columbus. Hernandez resembles starter Orlando Hernandez in style, but is not related to "El Duque."

DISCIPLINE: Arizona pitcher Miguel Batista was suspended for two games and fined by the commissioner's office, which said he threw a pitch at the Dodgers' Mark Grudzielanek on April 11.

Frank Robinson, baseball's vice president of discipline, said Batista threw at Grudzielanek in the fourth inning. Batista was ejected after the pitch by plate umpire Scott Higgins.

Los Angeles pitcher Darren Dreifort was fined by Robinson, who said he threw at and hit Tony Womack in the fifth inning. Dreifort was not ejected.

OBITUARY: Ted Rasberry, who owned two teams in the final years of the old Negro American League died at 89.
