The Kansas City Royals have placed reliever Justin Grimm on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury Authentic Kody Clark Jersey , filling the right-hander’s spot in the bullpen by recalling Jason Adam from Triple-A Omaha.

The move, made retroactive to June 24, was announced before the Royals’ road game Wednesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Royals say Grimm has right shoulder impingement syndrome.

Grimm’s most recent outing came Saturday, when he allowed a game-winning single to Carlos Correa with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 12th of a 4-3 loss to Houston.

Manager Ned Yost says he first heard about Grimm’s injury earlier this week. Grimm (1-3), who is making his second trip this year to the DL, would be eligible to return on July 4 against Cleveland.

Grimm has a 13.50 ERA this season, but a 3.18 ERA in six games since he returned from his first stint on the DL on June 12 for lower back stiffness.

Adam (0-1) is returning for another stint in the majors, with a 4.70 ERA in 14 games earlier this season with Kansas City.



A Ram truck ad that used a speech by Martin Luther King Blake Comeau Jersey , Jr., is drawing a backlash.

The ad shows people doing service-oriented tasks set against audio of King’s speech, which urges people to be ”great” by serving the greater good. It was supposed to highlight the volunteer program Ram Nation.

But it was criticized by viewers and ad experts alike for forging too tenuous a connection with the civil rights hero.

On Twitter, most people expressed the idea that using King’s speech to ”sell trucks” crossed a line between a heartfelt message and exploiting emotions just to push a vehicle.

”They pushed it over the edge,” said Kelly O’Keefe, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Brandcenter. ”You wanted to root for it because the cause is good, but it just didn’t end up fitting the brand, so you ended up feeling a little bit manipulated.”

”The use of MLK to promote Ram trucks strikes many people as crass and inappropriate Carl Soderberg Jersey ,” said Tim Calkins, a marketing professor at Northwestern University.

Watching at home, some viewers expressed distaste for the ad as well.

”I liked being reminded of Martin Luther King’s speech (but) I’m not sure it was fitting for a truck commercial,” said Kimberly Stites, who was watching the game in Gretna, Nebraska. ”I would have liked it better if they had said something like, `This reminder of all that we can be brought to you by ….”’

Fiat Chrysler said in a statement that it worked closely with the King estate on the ad.

The firm managing King’s intellectual property, Intellectual Properties Management Joel Armia Jersey Kids , said in a statement that it approved the ad because it embodied King’s philosophy.

On Twitter, the King Center in Atlanta said neither it nor Bernice King, King’s daughter, are in charge of licensing King’s speeches or other intellectual property.

The ad is not the first one to use a King Speech. Telecom Alcatel used King’s ”I Have a Dream” speech in a 1999 ad that was also approved by IPM.

That ad shows King giving his most famous speech to an empty Mall in Washington D.C. to illustrate the idea that ”before you can touch, you must first connect.”
