Kansas City Royals[edit]

The Kansas City Royals acquired Peguero from the Seattle Mariners on January 29, 2014 for cash considerations.[1][2] The Royals designated him for assignment on March 25, 2014, after they acquired Patrick Schuster off of waivers,[3] in the hopes that Peguero would clear waivers so they could assign him to the Omaha Storm Chasers.[4]


He is married to Pedro Borbón's youngest daughter, Maria Jacqueline Borbón. On October 19, 2013, his wife was charged with three counts of wire fraud after allegedly making $180,000 in online purchases with the debit card belonging to teammate Félix Hernández's wife.[5] Carlos Peguero told investigators he was unaware of any fraudulent purchases, believing his wife's brother worked for Saks Fifth Avenue, with whom the fraudulent purchases were made.[6] On February 7, 2014, Maria Peguero pleaded guilty to three counts of wire fraud.[7] On June 24, Maria Peguero was sentenced to a year and a day in prison.[8]
