Royals signed RHP Ian Kennedy to a five-year, $70 million contract.
The deal was reported two weeks ago and is finally official after the right-hander passed his physical. The Royals backloaded the contract, as Kennedy reportedly will make "only" $7.5 million in 2016 and then $13.5 million in 2017, $16 million in 2018, and $16.5 million in 2019 and 2020. The contract also contains an opt-out after the 2017 campaign which will net Kennedy a $6 million buyout if exercised. It's a bigger deal than most anticipated the right-hander would land, but Kennedy should be a solid addition to the middle of the Royals' rotation. Jan 29 - 12:08 PM
