Royals extend qualifying offer to Santana, reinstate Paulino


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.  

For more information, members of the media may contact the Royals Media Relations Department at (816) 921-8000.
