Mujica was released by the Royals on Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was released by the Phillies in July and subsequently scooped up by the Royals on a minor league deal. While he's posted a respectable 4.76 ERA across 51.0 Triple-A innings in 2016, Mujica will again become a free agent, and he'll now look elsewhere for a clearer path back to the major leagues.

Mujica signed a minor league deal with Kansas City on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It didn't take long for Mujica to find another big league club as the Royals scooped him up a day after being released by the Phillies. Mujica will now head to Kansas City's Triple-A affiliate, the Omaha Storm Chasers, to continue his 2016 campaign. The 32-year-old reliever made 36 appearances for Triple-A Lehigh Valley in the Phillies system this season, compiling a 4.38 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 39 innings.

Mujica was granted his release from the Phillies on Thursday, Stephen Gross of The Morning Call reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mujica had compiled a 3.69 ERA with a 1.18 WHIP for the Phillies' Triple-A club this season at the time he requested, and was granted his release from the team. The 32-year-old reliever chose to pursue a different organization through free agency instead of sticking around and potentially getting traded in the next couple weeks, or continuing with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Mujica's last appearance in the majors was with the A's in 2015, where he spent 33.2 innings of work, allowing 18 earned runs and accumulating 22 strikeouts.

Mujica has a 3.86 ERA, 21 saves and a 25:3 K:BB in 35 innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever was recently named to the International League All-Star team. He could get an opportunity with the Phillies later this month if the team deals some of their veteran bullpen pieces before the trade deadline.

Mujica was re-signed to a minor league contract by the Phillies on Wednesday, Ryan Lawrence of The Philly Voice reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mujica signed a minor league contract with the Phillies one day after being released by the team. He struggled in 2015 with the A's, pitching 33.2 innings with a 4.81 ERA. This spring, the 31-year-old has posted a 2.16 ERA during 8.1 innings of action. With 494 appearances on the mound in the majors, Mujica can provide organizational depth for the Phillies bullpen. Mujica will report to minor league camp on Thursday.

The Phillies released Mujica on Tuesday, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mujica pitched well this spring, but the Phillies decided to go in another direction. He should find interest from other clubs in need of relief help.

Mujica has a March 26 out clause in his contract with the Phillies, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mujica has tossed four scoreless innings this spring and looks to be on his way to earning a roster spot with the Phillies. He could also be in the mix for closing duties if David Hernandez gets hurt again before Opening Day.

Mujica signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Thursday, which includes an invite to spring training, MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mujica has saved at least one game in the big leagues in four straight seasons, so it would be unwise to count him out, despite declining stuff. Last year he split time between the Red Sox and the A's and compiled a 4.75 ERA and just 30 strikeouts in 47.1 innings.

Mujica (leg) tossed a scoreless inning in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Mujica had not pitched in two weeks prior to Sunday's game, but he was able to get back on the mound after recovering from his leg injury. He figures to pitch in middle relief the rest of the way.
