Royals sign outfielder Willy Taveras

Out of the Majors since 2010, Willy Taveras has agreed to a Minor League deal with the Royals that includes an invite to Major League camp, a baseball source said Tuesday.

Taveras turns 31 on Christmas Day and has a career .320 on-base percentage with 195 steals.

“It’s hard to wait, cause that’s what I was doing — just waiting and waiting, and I’m still waiting, and it’s hard to,” Taveras said earlier in the offseason. “But at the end of the day, I have a beautiful family, even if baseball doesn’t work, to be able to keep working hard, you keep yourself in good shape. … We’re just keeping positive.”
