Outfielder Shane Costa is back with the Triple-A Omaha Royals. He cleared waivers on Thursday and was outrighted to Omaha where he’s spent most of the last four years.
Costa had a good Spring Training as he recovered from wrist surgery last summer.
In recent news regarding ex-Royals, pitcher Joel Peralta has signed with Colorado, pitcher Jimmy Gobble has signed with the Chicago White Sox and infielder Esteban German has signed with Texas. All are on Triple-A contracts.
Just so you know, German is the third baseman on the Oklahoma team with German Duran as the second baseman.
The only three Royals players unsigned are shortstop Mike Aviles, first baseman Billy Butler and outfielder Mitch Maier.
The club announced Saturday that six players had signed contracts: pitchers Julio Pimentel and Robinson Tejeda; catcher Brayan Pena; first baseman Ryan Shealy; second baseman Alberto Callaspo, and outfielder Shane Costa.
