After a dismal outing on Thursday afternoon, one compounded by his actions afterward, Brad Penny received his release from the Royals on Friday morning.
Facing the White Sox, Penny yielded four runs in two innings, which pushed his Cactus League total to seven runs allowed in four frames. After the game, he injured his non-throwing hand punching a wall, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
Hed come in and worked his tail off, manager Ned Yost said. But with the way some of these young guys were throwing, theres just not a spot on the major-league club for him.
