Ramon Hernandez Opts Out Of Deal With Royals

Catcher Ramon Hernandez will opt out of his minor league contract with the Royals, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Hernandez, however, will remain with the team to work out, but can leave for another MLB job with no compensation due the Royals.

Hernandez, who signed in January to compete with Brett Hayes and Francisco Pena to be Salvador Perez's backup, batted just .208/.291/.438 in a career-low 55 plate appearances with the Dodgers in 2013, but the 37-year-old did hit three home runs showing he still has some pop left in his bat. The Eric Goldschmidt client is a lifetime .263/.327/.417 hitter in parts of 15 Major League seasons with the Athletics, Padres, Orioles, Reds, Rockies and Dodgers.
