KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals announced that they have traded infielder Kelvin Gutierrez to the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations.

Gutierrez, 26, made his Major League debut with the Royals in 2019, and appeared in 20 games, had 11 runs batted in (RBI's), including at least one in eight of his first 11 contests.

He was limited to just four games with the Royals in 2020 due to injuries.

The infielder appeared in 38 games this season, posting a .215 batting average with four doubles, two triples, a homerun and eight RBI's, after being recalled on May 14.

He was designated for assignment on June 28.
