KANSAS CITY -- The Royals have asked for unconditional release waivers for outfielder Jeff Francoeur, who was designated for assignment on June 30.

Francoeur was batting .208 with three home runs and 13 RBIs through 59 games.

If the release is granted, Francoeur will become a free agent available to other teams for the pro-rated minimum. The Royals will be responsible for the remainder of his $6.75 million salary.
