Royals send Santana, $4.3M to Mariners for 2 young pitchers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals traded slugger Carlos Santana and nearly $4.3 million to the Seattle Mariners for right-handers Wyatt Mills and William Fleming on Monday, clearing the way for Kansas City to bring up hot prospect Vinnie Pasquantino .

The Royals optioned Mills, a 27-year-old veteran, to Triple-A Omaha while designating right-hander Ronald Bolanos for assignment. Fleming was assigned to Class-A Quad Cities.

Kansas City agreed to send $4,269,231 to Seattle, leaving the Mariners to pay just $1.5 million of the remainder of Santana's salary in the second year of a two-year, $17.5 million contract.
