    • Brandon League: Released by Kansas City
      By RotoWire Staff

      League was released by the Royals on Sunday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. After being informed he wouldn't win a bullpen job with the big club, it appears League was unwilling to report to the Royals' minor-league camp, so he'll become a free agent. The 34-year-old was out of baseball last season and could be nearing the end of the line.

    • League received a spring training invite from the Royals on Saturday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports. League has been out of affiliated baseball since mid-2015 after shoulder issues prematurely ended his tenure with the Dodgers. While he's mostly remembered for his infamous $22.5 million contract, League did put in a good year as recently as 2014 when he posted a 2.57 ERA in 63 innings, so he could still have some major league potential in him as long as the shoulder is healthy.
