Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - The Kansas City Royals have recalled Aaron Brooks from Triple-A Omaha to make his first major league start in Saturday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

It will be the right-hander's second appearance in the majors after debuting in relief for the Royals on May 3.

Brooks, 24, was 4-1 with a 3.12 ERA in seven starts and one relief outing with the Storm Chasers this season. He displayed excellent command, issuing only eight walks in 40 1/3 innings.

The Royals optioned infielder/outfielder Jimmy Paredes to Omaha in a corresponding move.
