Kansas City has released veteran right-hander Luis Mendoza so that he can sign with a team in Japan.

Mendoza threw 260 innings for the Royals during the past two seasons, making 40 starts and a dozen relief appearances, but at age 30 he has a 5.39 career ERA and similarly ugly secondary numbers.

He’s expected to join the Nippon Ham Fighters in the NPB.
