Odalis Perez's 9 million-dollar option
has been declined by the Kansas City Royals, and fellow pitcher
David Riske turned down his nearly 3 million-dollar player option.

The Royals must pay Perez a 1.5 million-dollar buyout. Riske
filed for free agency.

Designated hitter Mike Sweeney filed for free agency as well.
Sweeney, the team's highest-paid player, has seen limited action
the past few years because of chronic back problems and a knee
injury in July. His 55 million-dollar, five-year contract expired
after this season.

Perez was 8-11 with a 5.57 ERA in 26 starts this year. Riske
went 1-4 with a 2.45 ERA and four saves in 65 relief appearances.
