Royals re-signed SS Alcides Escobar to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.
The deal was agreed upon last week and then finalized Monday after Escobar passed the necessary physical. He has posted a rough .256/.286/.343 batting line over the last three seasons combined, but Escobar still plays good defense at age 31 and he will likely open the 2018 season as the Royals' primary shortstop. Raul Mondesi could play various spots around the infield or head back to Triple-A Omaha for a little more development time. Jan 29 - 2:57 PM
