Royals | Raul Ibanez signs, Christian Colon called up

The Kansas City Royals signed free-agent OF Raul Ibanez (Angels) to an undisclosed major league deal Monday, June 30, and also recalled 2B Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha. In corresponding moves, the team designated INF Pedro Ciriaco and OF Justin Maxwell for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Ibanez figures to be a left-handed option for designated hitter duties and off the bench. Colon will be making his major league debut. He doesn't have much power but makes solid contact; he was hitting close to .300 with Omaha before his call-up. Both players should only be considered in AL-only leagues.
