Agreement in place to send Luis Mendoza to Japan
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Nippon Ham Fighters of Nippon Professional Baseball's Pacific League have an agreement in place to bring Royals pitcher Luis Mendoza to Japan, NPBTracker.com reports.

Mendoza has three years of arbitration eligibility remaining in the majors before he's due to become a free agent, but he struggled through 22 appearances (15 starts) in 2013, going 2-6 with a 5.36 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 54:43 K:BB ratio in 94 innings.

Luis Mendoza adjusting to new role
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Luis Mendoza is adjusting to his role in the bullpen after he was moved out of the rotation recently. Manager Ned Yost thinks Mendoza needed the move after he looked tired in his last few starts, though Mendoza disagreed with that assessment when speaking to MLB.com Friday.

"I don't feel that way," Mendoza said. "Mentally, I feel strong. I've been working hard and my body feels great, but maybe my body feels different than my mind."

Mendoza allowed nine runs in his final two starts before the move was made. He has yet to appear in a game since, as of Friday. He has a 4.87 ERA on the season, in 15 starts.
