Royals non-tender Bueno

The Royals declined to tender a 2015 contract to left-hander Francisley Bueno on Tuesday, making him a free agent.

The 33-year-old Bueno spent parts of the past three seasons with the Royals. He posted a 4.18 ERA in 30 appearances in 2014.

The move leaves Kansas City's 40-man roster at 38.
