Royals release Guillermo Moscoso

1 Comment

Kansas City has released Guillermo Moscoso after claiming the right-hander off waivers from Colorado in November.

Moscoso has now been traded twice, claimed off waivers once, and released once since January of 2011, and his next team will be his sixth organization at age 29.

He pitched well for the A’s in 2011, posting a 3.38 ERA in 128 innings, but then got traded to the Rockies for Seth Smith and was knocked around for a 6.17 ERA in 50 innings last season. He was just as bad at Triple-A, so Moscoso will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal and no 40-man roster spot.
