Despite coming off a World Series victory and being a great organization to be a part of, the KC Royals keep losing players via free agency.
The newest is Casey Coleman, who signed a minor league deal with a big league spring training invite with Seattle.
Coleman, one of three Coleman’s that played with Triple-A Omaha in 2015, pitched in 33 games with the Storm Chasers, but zero with the Royals. He pitched in ten games with the Royals in 2014 (after being acquired from the Chicago Cubs).
It was a rough 2015 season for Coleman, who walked 41 and allowed 102 hits in just 82.1 innings.
Coleman joins big leaguers Ben Zobrist (Cubs) and Johnny Cueto (SF Giants) and minor leaguers Paul Clemens (Miami), Joba Chamberlain (Cleveland), Casey Kotchman (Toronto), and JC Sulbaran (St. Louis) to look for greener pastures elsewhere. It was also rumored that lefty Buddy Baumann had Major League offers. The Royals never gave him a chance.
