The Royals placed reliever Neftali Feliz on the paternity list Friday before their second-half opener against the Rangers at Kauffman Stadium, the team announced.
To take Feliz's spot, Kansas City recalled right-hander Miguel Almonte from Triple-A Omaha.
Feliz has made seven appearances for the Royals since signing with the team on June 23, following his release by the Brewers. The 29-year-old has allowed two runs in seven innings and struck out six for Kansas City.
The 24-year-old Almonte, rated the team's No. 15 prospect by MLBPipeline.com, has pitched in two games in relief for the big league club this season, most recently throwing a scoreless inning on July 1.
