      Royals' Jonny Gomes: Free agent after Royals decline club option

      Gomes' club option for 2016 was declined by the Royals Thursday, making him a free agent. Gomes played sparingly with the Royals and Braves this season, recording a .213/.313/.347 slash line and seven home runs in 225 at-bats. While the 34-year-old might live in infamy due to a "mic drop" during the Royals' World Series parade, he's unlikely to gain any fantasy relevance with his career seemingly winding to a conclusion. Gomes will likely provide organizational depth for an outfield-needy team in the offseason, but he shouldn't be counted on for fantasy purposes.

      Royals get OF Jonny Gomes in trade with Braves

      The Royals have acquired veteran outfielder Jonny Gomes in a trade with the Braves, Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. In 82 games with Atlanta this season, Gomes was hitting .223 with seven home runs and 22 RBI. He will give the Royals some depth in the outfield and off the bench as they get ready for a likely postseason run. Gomes has been to the playoffs several times in his career, and is 7 for 49 lifetime in the postseason. He won a World Series ring with the Red Sox in 2013. In return, the Braves will receive minor-league infielder Luis Valenzuela, Heyman adds. Valenzuela has been playing with the Royals' rookie league team and Class A affiliate in Lexington. Overall this season, he is batting .364/.385/.502 in 209 at-bats.

Pierzynski had been behind the plate each of the last four games, but has struggled with the bat. He's hitting .185 (5 for 27) over his last seven games. He'll cede Thursday's start to rookie Christian Bethancourt. Cunningham has been on a tear since being called up last week.
