Also on the list are infielder Miguel Tejada and first baseman Carlos Pena.
Tejada was on the restricted list after receiving a 105-game suspension from Major League Baseball on Aug. 17 for violation of the Joint Drug and Prevention Program. Pena was placed on the 60-day disabled list Sept. 17 because of an appendectomy. The Royals have indicated no interest in re-signing them.
