Josh Willingham announced his retirement Monday.

Willingham enjoyed an 11-year career that saw him play for five different teams. He was a career .253 hitter who slugged 195 home runs during those 11 years. Willingham was being pursued by a few teams this offseason, but he ultimately decided to walk away under his own terms.

Infielder Jayson Nix has elected free agency rather than accept an assignment to the Royals' Triple-A club at Omaha.

Someone will be willing to bring the well-traveled utility infielder in for a look during spring training. He doesn't have a big bat at all, but he's a good glove with some nice versatility. He hit 14 home runs over 363 plate appearances back in 2010, but he hasn't really sniffed that level of power in some time. He's not someone to consider for fantasy.

Royals announce that former INF Chris Getz has been added to the front office staff as a Baseball Operations Assistant/Player Development.

Getz was a career .250 hitter in his seven years in the bigs and he now hopes to do his part in the front office to help bring the Royals back to the postseason.

Ryan Roberts signed a minor league contract with the Royals. The deal includes an invite to spring training.

While Roberts could break camp with the big league club, he will most likely be forced into a back-up role. He has little to no fantasy relevance moving into the 2015 season.

Joe Paterson signed a minor league contract with the Royals. The deal includes an invite to spring training.

Paterson's main role is going to be a lefty specialist at any level he plays at. He limited lefties in triple-A to a .198 batting average season. However, a big knock on Paterson is that he tends to walk a lot of batters. He has no fantasy value moving into 2015.

Paterson appeared in 56 games for Triple-A Reno going 0-2 with a 2.95 ERA.

James Shields has rejected the Royals qualifying offer.

One more star deciding to forego guaranteed money ot test out the market. Shields will undoubtedly garner a ton of interest as a free agent, although his payday may be just a bit behind that of Max Scherzer, who is expected to be the premier starting pitcher available this offseason.

GM Dayton Moore does not believe Omar Infante will require surgery on his shoulder.

Infante had been dealing with a nagging shoulder soreness throughout the season and hinted during the playoffs that surgery could be necessary. The Royals are apparently confident that rest will do the trick. The 32-year-old batted .252/.295/.337 with six home runs and 66 RBI in 2014 in the first season of a four-year, $32.25 million contract.
