The Kansas City Royals placed left-hander Mike Minor on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to a shoulder injury and recalled right-hander Scott Blewett from Triple-A Omaha.

Minor, 33, was diagnosed with a left shoulder impingement and the injury could mark the end of his season. Minor is 8-12 with a 5.05 ERA this season in 28 starts and is 79-78 over 10 career seasons with a 4.11 ERA for the Atlanta Braves (2010-14), Royals (2017, 2021), Texas Rangers (2018-20) and Oakland Athletics (2020).

Blewett, 25, has made just two major league appearances, both last season with the Royals, when he gave up two runs over six innings.
