Infielder Yuniesky Betancourt is off the disabled list and back in the Royals' lineup Friday night in

the 2-0 victory over the Athletics.

It did not take long for Betancourt to produce as his first-inning double scored Alex Gordon with the

initial Kansas City run. Betancourt scored the second run on Mike Moustakas' single.

Betancourt, who missed the previous 26 games with a high right ankle sprain, started at second base and

batted second. It was Betancourt's 13th start at second base, but only the third time he hit in the second

slot.

Betancourt went 10-for-23 (.435) in six minor league rehab games with Class AA Northwest Arkansas and

Class AAA Omaha, where he hit .625 (5-for-8) with a home run and two RBIs in two games.

In 15 games before going on the disabled list, Betancourt hit .280 with four doubles, a home run and

three RBIs.
