January 29, 2014
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Royals acquired outfielder Carlos Peguero from the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.
The 26-year-old Peguero has spent parts of the last three seasons with Seattle. He is a career .195 hitter with nine home runs and 27 RBIs in 219 at_bats in the majors.
He ranked seventh in the Pacific Coast League with 19 homers in 2013, along with a .260 batting average, 28 doubles and 83 RBIs at Triple-A Tacoma. Peguero was designated for assignment on Jan. 16 when the Mariners signed free agent catcher John Buck.
The Royals also designated left-handed pitcher Everett Teaford for assignment. Teaford made one appearance for the Royals in 2013, pitching 0.2 inning at Cleveland on July 14.
