|Pedro Ciriaco accepts assignment to Triple-A |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/10/14) The Royals announced Thursday infielder Pedro Ciriaco has accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Omaha. He was designated for assignment Saturday.
|Royals promote Aaron Brooks, designate Pedro Ciriaco |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/5/14) The Royals have promoted right-hander Aaron Brooks to join their bullpen and designated infielder Pedro Ciriaco for assignment.
The 23-year-old Brooks has yet to make his major league debut.
|Royals make flurry of roster moves Tuesday |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/3/13) The Kansas City Royals promoted the following six players to the roster Tuesday before a game against Seattle, the Kansas City Star reports.
As expected, Louis Coleman and Wade Davis have rejoined the bullpen from Class A Wilmington. The Royals also promoted for Triple-A Omaha players as infielder Johnny Giavotella and reliever Donnie Joseph were recalled and Carlos Pena and Pedro Ciriaco had their contracts purchased.
Kansas City cleared space on the 40-man roster by moving pitcher Noel Arguelles to the 60-day disabled list and designating infielder Edinson Rincon for assignment. Rincon was at Double-A Northwest Arkansas.
|Pedro Ciriaco assigned to Triple-A |

(7/18/13) The Royals have assigned infielder Pedro Ciriaco to Triple-A.
Ciriaco was acquired on waivers from the Padres Tuesday. In 114 at-bats with Boston and San Diego, Ciriaco is hitting .228/.288/.342.
|Pedro Ciriaco a smart add in AL-only |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/16/13) With the Royals adding Pedro Ciriaco Tuesday, there's a decent chance for AL-only owners to snag a possible starting middle infielder for the remainder of the season. There's plenty of "meh" involved -- the Royals could continue giving Johnny Giavotella and Miguel Tejada the majority of at-bats -- but Ciriaco has some nice potential in batting average and steals, and could end up being a smart add for a Fantasy team weak in MI options.
Ciriaco hit .293 with 16 steals over 259 at-bats with the Red Sox last year. He was fairly erratic with his batting average in the minors (it evened out to .272), but showed some nice speed potential, stealing 35-plus bases twice and 19 or more five times.
With Giavotella hitting .206 and Tejada having a nice season but not expected to handle a full-time role at 39, Ciriaco could step in and provide a solid presence at second base for the Royals. In AL-only, the promise of regular at-bats alone should make Ciriaco a nice add in most leagues. But if he can contribute like he did in 2012 with the Red Sox, Ciriaco could be a nice boost for a team sagging in the standings.
