Royals exercise options on Davis, Escobar; three others now free agents

The Kansas City Royals announced Friday the team has exercised club options on right-handed pitcher Wade Davis and shortstop Alcides Escobar.

The terms of the deals were not disclosed.

First baseman/designated hitter Kendrys Morales and right-handed pitcher Edinson Volquez declined their mutual options, according to a news release from the Royals.

The Royals have declined the mutual option on right-handed pitcher Kris Medlen after he exercised his portion of the mutual option.

The Royals said all three players are now free agents and are able to sign with any club, beginning Tuesday, Nov. 8.

The Royals also reinstated pitchers Tim Collins and Mike Minor and third baseman Mike Moustakas on the 60-day disabled list, bringing the Royals’ 40-man roster to 39 players.
