Royals' Andres Machado: Returns to Kansas City on MiLB deal
Machado signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Monday.
As expected, the right-hander will re-sign with Kansas City after the team declined to tender him a contract before Friday's deadline. Machado split last season between Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha, producing a 5.53 ERA and a 72:38 K:BB in 83 innings of work. He figures to act as organizational depth for the Royals.

Andres Machado: Hits open market
Machado was non-tendered by the Royals on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Machado will become a free agent after spending most of the 2018 season at Triple-A Omaha. He actually came up as the 26th man for a Royals' doubleheader in July but failed to make an appearance during his only stint with the big-league club. Per Flanagan, Machado is expected to reach an agreement with Kansas City on a minor-league deal within the next 24 hours.

Royals' Andres Machado: Called up from minors
Machado was recalled from Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Saturday.
Machado will be available out of the bullpen for both games of Saturday's doubleheader. The right-hander has only appeared in two big-league contests -- both coming last year -- and was in the midst of a rough year at Triple-A Omaha before transitioning to a relief role at the Double-A level in mid-June. Since shifting to the bullpen, he's logged a 3.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 11 strikeouts in 12 innings for Northwest Arkansas.
