KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Royals have declined to offer a 2014 contract to second baseman Chris Getz, making him a free agent.
Getz hit .220 with a homer and 18 RBIs in 78 games last season, when he earned $1.05 million. The 30-year-old made his major league debut in 2008 with the Chicago White Sox and is a .251 hitter in 449 career games.
The Royals announced the decision on Monday. Teams had until midnight to offer contracts to unsigned players on their 40-man rosters.
