KANSAS CITY -- Joe Saunders' tenure with the Royals was a short one.

The left-hander, who pitched for four different MLB teams, was released by Kansas City on Tuesday, after just four starts at Triple-A Omaha.

He compiled a 1-2 record with a 6.75 ERA in his time there.

Saunders, an All-Star for the Angels in 2008, signed with the Royals on July 8, after being cut by the Rangers.

Texas released him after he posted an 0-5 record with a 6.13 ERA in eight starts.
