Ryan McBroom's latest stay in the majors was brief.

The Royals optioned McBroom to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday, two days after he was recalled from the Storm Chasers. The infielder/outfielder pinch hit in games both Tuesday and Wednesday, striking out in his first attempt and hitting a single in his second. He now has appeared in seven Royals games in 2021.

McBroom is slashing .271/.341/.538 with 18 home runs and 49 RBIs for Omaha in 2021.

The Royals do not play Thursday. They will announce a corresponding roster move Friday.
