Morin, 26, was claimed off waivers from the Angels late in the season. He had a 7.94 ERA with the Royals in six appearances.

"We see value in [Morin] competing for a spot in the bullpen next season," Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. "Hopefully he can add to our depth."

The move was made ahead of Friday night's deadline to tender contracts for those on the 40-man roster. The Royals have three more players eligible for arbitration; right-handers Kelvin Herrera, Brandon Maurer and Nate Karns.
