Royals acquire outfielder Carlos Peguero from Seattle


The Kansas City Royals announced today that they have acquired outfielder Carlos Peguero from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations. Peguero (pronounced: peh-GAIR-oh) has been added to the 40-man roster. In a corresponding roster move, left-handed pitcher Everett Teaford has been designated for assignment.

Peguero, 26, has spent parts of the last three seasons in the Major Leagues with Seattle. Last season, he played in two games in April, going 2-for-6 with a homer and an RBI. He ranked seventh in the Pacific Coast League with 19 homers in 2013, to go along with a .260 batting average (118-for-454), 28 doubles and 83 RBI at Triple-A Tacoma. The left-handed hitting outfielder participated in the 2010 XM All-Star Futures Game at Angel Stadium, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored for the World team. He is a career .195 hitter with nine homers and 27 RBI in just 219 plate appearances at the Major League level between 2011-13.

Teaford, 29, made one appearance for the Royals in 2013, pitching 0.2 inning at Cleveland on July 14.
