Royals Release Gobble, Sign Lerew

According to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star, the Royals released left-hander Jimmy Gobble, and signed right-hander Anthony Lerew to a minor league contract.

Gobble spent the last 10 years in the Royals' organization, but his lack of success against right-handers finally led to his termination Wednesday morning.  The Royals will save $1.1MM with the move, but are reportedly still about $4MM over their budget for 2009.

Lerew will head to Royals camp after he passes a physical.  The 26-year-old pitched in 11 games for the Braves from 2005-2007, but spent all of last season recovering from Tommy John surgery.
