Braun made the Royals last spring and spent the majority of the season in the majors, but he pitched just two innings this spring. He needs to throw more strikes if he's going to be a factor on a deeper Royals pitching staff this year.

Ryan Braun will begin the season in the Royals' bullpen.

A long shot to make the team when camp began, Braun posted 1.04 ERA in eight spring appearances to claim a job. "Braun is a little wild in the strike zone with good stuff," manager Buddy Bell said. "He is kind of effectively wild, but I think this kid has a chance to be pretty good. When he's good, he can throw a swing-and-miss breaking ball, but he's got to have more command of his fastball. We're going to try to manage through that, try to get him to the point he can get better at it. I think he deserves to be on our club. He pitched himself on the club."

Royals purchased the contract of RHP Ryan Braun from Triple-A Omaha.

Braun, 26, had a 2.19 ERA and an 80/29 K/BB in 65 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A. The Royals think he'll become a setup man or maybe even a closer. However, he's not a very good bet for the short-term.
