Royals optioned LHP Chris Dwyer to Triple-A Omaha.

Dwyer had a cup of coffee with the Royals last September after he posted a 3.55 ERA and 112/72 K/BB ratio in 159 2/3 innings in Triple-A. Entering his age-26 season, he doesn't throw as hard as he once did, so he now profiles more as a spot starter or a reliever.

Royals optioned LHP Chris Dwyer to Triple-A Omaha.

Dwyer gave up three runs (two earned) over 1 2/3 innings in his lone appearance this spring. The 24-year-old southpaw had a 5.89 ERA between Double- and Triple-A last season while dealing with a thyroid condition. The Royals added him to the 40-man roster in November, so they clearly aren't ready to give up on him yet.

Minor league Chris Dwyer will be joining the Royals at spring training as a non-rostered invitee.

Dwyer has moved up fairly quickly through the Royals organization, landing in Double-A last year in only his second season of professional ball. The 22-year-old has amassed 128 strikeouts in 110.2 innings to go with a respectable 3.09 ERA. He is expected to start this season in Double-A or Triple-A.
