Casey Coleman was assigned to Triple-A Omaha.

The Royals have been trying to make room for free agent signings so players like Casey Coleman and Moises Sierra have been assigned to Triple-A. Look for Coleman to play in Omaha for most of 2015.

Moises Sierra was assigned to Triple-A Omaha.

This was a move that needed to be made in order to make room for Alex Rios on the major league roster. Sierra will start out 2015 in Triple-A Omaha

Royals request release waivers for outfielder Carlos Peguero.

With no need for Peguero, the Royals are setting him free. He will go on waivers and if no one claims him, he'll automatically be released and declared a free agent.

Royals trade Johnny Giavotella to the Angels in exchange for RHP Brian Broderick.

Giavotella, for now, is an insurance policy should the Halos no re-sign Gordon Beckham. He's got an average glove at the keystone but struggles to hit against major league pitching. Broderick is a 28-year old reliever who struggled through the minors and spent the last two years in the Mexican League. Neither is going to have promising fantasy value in 2015.

Royals designate Johnny Giavotella for assignment.

Giavotella is being designated for assignment so that Kris Medlen can be added to Kansas City's 40-man roster. He will definitely be able to find a minor league deal with another club and could see occasional time in the majors next year.

Royals sign RHP Kris Medlen to a two-year deal with a mutual option for 2017.

Medlen was a highly touted pitcher while with the Braves and the team was hoping to re-sign him despite not tendering him earlier this month. He underwent his second Tommy John surgery last month so he is definitely a project. He is expected to be ready for spring training though, so consider him a late-round flier for now.

Royals and Edinson Volquez are closing in on a deal believed to be in the two-year, $20M range. Deal is now pending a physical.

Given the way that Volquez pitched for the Pirates last season, he warranted a deal in this price range. It's anyone's guess as to how he'll perform with the Royals, but if he can come close to repeating his numbers from 2014, this will be considered a solid bargain for Kansas City. If Volquez can keep his walks in check like he did last season, he should see success in a Royals uniform.

Royals designate OF Moises Sierra for assignment.

With the addition of Alex Rios, the Royals needed to open up a roster spot. Sierra might refuse the assignment and test the free agent market, but he's not likely to find a situation more conducive to him getting a shot at some point during the year.

Alex Rios has agreed to a one-year, $11 million deal with the Royals.

Rios was hampered by injuries to his thumb and ankle in 2014, and while he may rebound to provide some decent numbers, do not expect him to be a 20 homer/20 steal guy again at 34 years of age this upcoming season.

Royals have designated RHP Casey Coleman for assignment.

This should open up another spot on the 40-man roster for the Royals to make a move on a bigger name free agent signing.
