Royals release Chavez from Minor League contract


TEMPE, Ariz. -- Outfielder Endy Chavez, a non-roster invitee, was released from his Minor League contract by the Royals on Friday.

Chavez, 35, had returned to the Royals this winter, 12 years after beginning his Major League career for them with 29 games in 2001. He'd since played with the Expos, Nationals, Phillies, Mets, Mariners, Rangers and Orioles.

In 18 Cactus League games, Chavez batted just .188 (6-for-32) with no extra-base hits or RBIs.

His departure leaves the Royals with 38 active players in camp.
