Royals signed RHP Edinson Volquez to a two-year, $20 million contract with a mutual option for 2017.
The deal was agreed to nearly two weeks ago and finalized Monday after Volquez passed his pre-signing physical. Volquez had a huge bounceback season in 2014 with the Pirates, posting a 3.04 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 140/71 K/BB ratio across 192 2/3 innings. He was one of the worst starters in baseball in 2013.
