Bourgeois chooses free agency over Triple-A
KANSAS CITY -- Outfielder Jason Bourgeois has decided to become a free agent, the Royals announced on Monday.

Bourgeois cleared waivers and was assigned outright to Triple-A Omaha, but the right-handed hitter elected free agency instead. He was designated for assignment on Nov. 2.

Bourgeois appeared in 30 games for Kansas City this past season, recording a .258 average, 16 hits, five RBIs and five stolen bases in nine attempts. He spent most of the year with Omaha, where he hit .243 with three homers, eight RBIs and seven steals in 60 games.

Bourgeois and catcher Humberto Quintero were acquired on March 20 from the Astros in a trade for Minor League pitcher Kevin Chapman and outfielder D'Andre Toney. Quintero was released on July 5.
