Royals signed OF Michael Saunders to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Saunders agreed to terms with the Pirates on a minor league deal this week and was even at their spring training complex earlier Friday. However, it appears he asked out of the agreement after they traded for Corey Dickerson. Saunders will probably have a better shot to make the Royals' Opening Day roster. He batted just .202/.256/.344 with six homers over 73 games for the Phillies and Blue Jays last season. Feb 23 - 4:41 PM
