Royals lock in 3B Mike Aviles
The team announced the deals Sunday without providing financial terms.
Aviles hit .304 last season, while Escobar, who was acquired in December from Milwaukee in the Zack Greinke trade, hit .235 last season as a rookie with the Brewers.
Texeira was 1-0 with a 4.64 ERA in 27 relief appearances after being claimed June 3 off waivers from the Mariners.
May hit .189 in 12 games after a September promotion, while Pucetas, Barrera and Teaford have never been in the majors.
