Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Royals released OF Ysmelin Alcantara, 1B Henry Moreno and 2B Jose Rodriguez on Monday.

With the MLB season now over, the Kansas City Royals have begun to make roster moves at both the high and low ball clubs throughout the franchise. On Monday, KC released three minor league players. As reported by Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star, the Royals let go of Ysmelin Alcantara, Henry Moreno and Jose Rodriguez.

Alcantara, an outfielder, was originally drafted by the Royals in 2008 and never made it past the Idaho Falls Chukars Rookie Ball team. He put up a slash line of .246/.315/.390 during his five years with the rookie teams in the Royals organization.

Moreno, a first baseman, played for the Royals organization for three years and made it up to Single-A Kane County before being released. He was only able to muster a .197 batting average in Single-A in 2012.

Rodriguez, a second baseman, was also released without much time on his record, playing for three years in the organization and hitting .249/.322./320 (the SLG is not a typo) in rookie ball.
