The Kansas City Royals have avoided year contract. The 30- year -old Pena batted .248 with 11 doubles, three home runs and 24 RBI in 72 games for the Royals last season.

The Royals have agreed to a deal with southpaw Mike Minor, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports (Twitter link). Minor actually signed with K.C. on a two- year deal prior to the 2016 season, though he missed all of 2016 recovering from the shoulder problems that also caused him to miss all of 2015.

The Kansas City Royals made an addition to their outfield Monday by signing outfielder Michael A. Taylor, the team announced.

It's a one-year major-league contract worth $1.75 million, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports. The deal also contains another $1 million worth of incentives.

Taylor had spent his entire career with the Washington Nationals. After being outrighted off the Nats' 40-man roster last month, Taylor elected free agency rather than accept a minor-league assignment.

The 29-year-old helped Washington win a World Series in 2019 as a part-time outfielder. His best season came in 2017 when he posted a .806 OPS with 19 homers, 53 RBIs, and 17 stolen bases while serving as the Nats' primary center fielder. Taylor only appeared in 38 games last year and slashed .196/.253/.424 with five homers.

In Kansas City, Taylor will look to revitalize his career by potentially playing all three outfield positions. He also adds more depth to a crowded Royals outfield that already includes Franchy Cordero, Bubba Starling, and versatile stars Whit Merrifield and Hunter Dozier, who can both play on the infield.
