Royals Cut Ties With Smith

Less than a month after designating catcher Paul Phillips for assignment, the Kansas City Royals have done the same to Jason Smith.

The former Meridian Community College standout was released to make room on the 40-man roster for newly acquired catcher Miguel Olivo. In 40 games with the Royals last season, Smith batted .188 with six homeruns.

If the infielder clears waivers, he could be wind up in AAA Omaha.
