Beimel was released by the Royals, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. The 39-year-old southpaw had pitched 14.2 innings across 12 games at Triple-A Omaha before being released. Beimel had been struggling, as he'd posted a 4.30 ERA and 1.91 WHIP. His last stint in the MLB came during the 2015 season, during which he had a 3.99 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with the Mariners.
Beimel has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Royals, Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports. Beimel will be required to have a physical before being able to play, but the Royals have seen his MRI and believe his elbow is okay. Beimel has had both shoulder and elbow issues in 2016, but was given a clean bill of health by doctors. Beimel will likely be used for organizational depth in the bullpen. The veteran has not played in a major league game this season.
Beimel signed with the Marlins on Thursday and will report to extended spring training, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. The 39-year-old Beimel tossed 47.1 innings for the Mariners in 2015, collecting a 3.99 ERA but striking out just 4.2 batters per nine innings. He'll likely start his tenure with the club in the minors, but could end up in the Miami bullpen later this year if a need for a lefty reliever arises.

The Mariners have placed reliever Joe Beimel on the disabled list with arm fatigue and promoted fellow left-hander Rob Rasmussen from Triple-A Tacoma, per the Tacoma News-Tribune. Beimel has complained about the ailment lately - and he has evidence to prove it. He has allowed an outrageous 10 earned runs and five home runs over his last 1 2/3 innings to send his ERA soaring from 2.50 to 4.78. Rasmussen was just sent down by Seattle on Monday after compiling an awful 14.09 ERA.
