Royals ask release waivers on Quintero
TORONTO -- Catcher Humberto Quintero is about to become an ex-Royal officially.

The Royals asked unconditional release waivers on Quintero, 32, who was designated for assignment on June 27. That came in the wake of regular catcher Salvador Perez's return from the disabled list.

Obtained from the Astros with outfielder Jason Bourgeois for two Minor League players, Quintero, a .232 hitter in 43 games, had shared the catching duties with Brayan Pena, who remains with the club.
