The Royals, apparently not happy with acquiring just ONE white, scrappy, former-Mariner utility infielder this offseason, have claimed Tug Hulett on waivers.
[T]he club claimed Tug Hulett on waivers from Seattle. Hulett, 25, made his big-league debut last season when he batted .224 in 49 at-bats over 30 games.
The Royals cleared space on their 40-man roster by designating left-handed reliever Neal Musser for assignment. Hulett is expected to join the Royals in time for Friday’s workout.
"He gives us some depth," general manager Dayton Moore said. "He can play second, third and a little short. And he's got two options left.
"We see him beginning the season at (Class AAA) Omaha, but I wouldn’t put limitations on him. He'll come in here and compete for a job."
