KANSAS CITY -- Left-handed pitcher Everett Teaford has cleared waivers and, as expected, has remained in the Royals' organization with an assignment to Triple-A Omaha. He's also been invited to Major League training camp.

Teaford, 29, was designated for assignment on Jan. 29 to make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Carlos Peguero, who was obtained from the Mariners.

Last year, Teaford had a 4-6 record and 3.49 ERA for Omaha in 31 games, including 14 starts. He appeared in just one game for Kansas City but, in the last three seasons, he's pitched 45 games for the Royals with a 3-5 record and a 4.25 ERA.
