The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has extended a one-year Qualifying Offer to right-handed pitcher Ervin Santana for the 2014 season.
Santana has until November 11 at 4 p.m. CT to accept or decline the offer. A declined Qualifying Offer would mean the Royals would receive an additional selection at the end of the first round of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft should Santana sign with another Major League team.
The Royals also announced today that right-handed pitcher Felipe Paulino has been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list. Paulino made seven rehab starts between Northwest Arkansas (AA) and Omaha (AAA) in 2013, recovering from Tommy John surgery on July 3, 2012.
