Royals claim Moises Sierra off waivers from White Sox


Being in the World Series hasn’t stopped the Royals from tweaking the margins of their 40-man roster, as they claimed outfielder Moises Sierra off waivers from the White Sox.

Sierra has hit just .243 with nine homers and a .679 OPS in 180 games for the White Sox and Blue Jays during the past three seasons and his Triple-A numbers aren’t a whole lot better.

At age 25 he profiles as a bench player, but he does have a decent power-speed combo and the right-handed hitter could fit in a platoon role at some point.
