Royals sign Kris Medlen
The Royals and right-hander Kris Medlen agreed Thursday to a two-year deal with a mutual option for 2017.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Medlen, 29, spent 2014 rehabbing from Tommy John surgery after suffering an elbow injury in Spring Training with the Braves.
Medlen’s lone season as a starter came in 2013, when he blossomed into the one of the game’s best. He was 15-12 with a 3.11 ERA and finished the season going 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA and .197 average against in his final five starts.
He is 34-20 with a 2.95 ERA in 152 career (61 starts).
