The 27-year old Chavez was 2-3 with a 5.88 ERA in 23 relief appearances for the Royals in 2010 after being acquired from Atlanta on July 31.  Chavez posted a 1.74 ERA in his final nine outings of the year, holding batters to a .167 average over the span.

Lough, 25, saw his first action at the Triple-A level in 2010, spending the entire season with Omaha.  The left-handed batter and thrower hit .280 with 11 home runs and 58 RBI in 120 games.  The 2009 George Brett Hitter of the Year was added to the 40-man roster on November 19, 2010.

23-year-old Derrick Robinson patrolled center field for the Texas League champion Northwest Arkansas Naturals in 2010, batting .286 with a league-leading 50 stolen bases in 67 attempts.  The switch-hitter also finished among the league leaders with eight triples (T-2nd) and 146 hits (3rd).  Robinson, who has swiped 236 bases in his professional career, was added to the 40-man roster on November 19, 2010.

Royals select pitcher Nate Adcock in Rule 5 draft

The Royals today selected right-handed pitcher Nate Adcock from the Indianapolis (AAA) roster of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization with the fifth overall pick in the Major League phase of the 2010 Rule 5 draft.  In the Triple-A phase, the Royals selected right-handed pitcher Heath Rollins from the Montgomery (AA) roster in the Tampa Bay Rays organization and assigned him to Omaha (AAA).  Kansas City did not have a player selected in the Major League phase, but left-handed pitchers Starling De La Rosa and Rowdy Hardy were selected by the Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves, respectively, in the Triple-A phase.

The 22-year old Adcock is a native of Elizabethtown, Ky., and went 11-7 with a 3.38 ERA in 27 games (26 starts) for Bradenton in the Florida State League in 2010, fanning 113 in 141.1 innings pitched.  The 6-5, 190-lb. Adcock was originally a fifth-round pick in the 2006 First Year Player Draft by the Seattle Mariners.  He was traded to the Pirates’ organization in 2009 as part of the seven-player trade that sent shortstop Jack Wilson and pitcher Ian Snell to Seattle.

Rollins, 25, split his 2010 campaign between Durham (AAA) and Montgomery (AA), combining for a 5-3 record with a 5.27 ERA in 44 games, including three starts.  The Rays’ 11th-round pick in 2006 was a non-roster invite to Spring Training in 2010.
