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.

Royals announce that they've selected the contract of OF Paulo Orlando, adding him to the 40-man roster.

Orlando had a real nice season down at Omaha in 2014. He had a slash line of .301/.355/.415 with six homers, 63 RBI and 34 stolen bases. The 29-year-old has never actually appeared in the major leagues but could make his debut at some point in 2015.
