The Kansas City Royals released Jeff Francoeur after he passed through waivers unclaimed.
It is not surprising he went unclaimed because teams would be reluctant to pick up the $3 million remaining on his contract.
Now he is a free agent and can sign with any team for any amount of money.
Francoeur, 29, hit .208 with three homers for the Royals this season.
