The Royals signed Bruce Chen to a two year deal that’ll pay Chen $4.5 million each of the two years. Chen had a solid season for the Royals last year and he was one of their better starters. There’s also $2 million in incentives that Chen can wrack up if he pitches well.
Chen is now 34 but he’s been the Royals top winning pitcher in 2010 and 201 with twelve wins each. He finished with a 3.77 ERA and he really shined against teams in the AL Central where he went 8-3 with a 2.47 ERA.
Not a bad pickup but the Royals still need help. If Chen is the team’s best pitcher, you know they’re not doing much.
