Royals signed RHP Roman Colon to a minor league contract.
The 35-year-old hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2012. He spent the 2014 season toeing the slab for the Brother Elephants in Taiwan. He makes for a low-risk depth signing, but is unlikely to make a major impact for the Royals in 2015. Jan 10 - 12:41 PM

Colon appeared in a few games for the Royals last season but spent most of the season at Triple-A, posting a 3.09 ERA, 7.9 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9 over 40 games. He's merely organizational depth.

The deal also comes with an invitation to spring training, but Colon is doubtful to earn a spot in the Royals' Opening Day bullpen. He spent the entire 2011 season at the Triple-A level, posting a 4.85 ERA in 29 2/3 innings. The righty will function as organizational relief depth for the Royals.
