Royals release Colon, who signs in Korea

|
The Royals granted right-hander Roman Colon his release on Tuesday, freeing him to sign with the KIA Tigers of the Korean Baseball Organization.

Colon appeared in five games for the Royals this season, giving up four runs in two innings. He was designated for assignment on April 16 and outrighted to Triple-A Omaha five days later.

For his five-year Major League career -- spent with the Braves, Tigers and Royals -- the 30-year-old Colon is 8-10 with a 5.12 ERA in 121 games (eight starts).
