The Kansas City Royals have signed free-agent SP Chris R. Young (Mariners) to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Young went 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA for Seattle last season, with opposing hitters batting just .234 against him. While he appears to be a good fit for Kansas City's starting rotation, he will probably be available on mixed league draft boards in the later rounds due to his injury history and walk-to-strikeout ratio. In order to clear space on the 40-man roster for Young, SP Kris Medlen (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list.
