The Kansas City Royals reportedly have agreed to a two-year deal with free agent left-hander Mike Minor, pending the results of a physical.
Minor, who turns 33 on Dec. 26, split the 2020 season with the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics and went 1-6 with a 5.56 ERA in 12 games (11 starts).
He was an All-Star with the Rangers in 2019, finishing 14-10 with a 3.59 ERA and 200 strikeouts in 208 1/3 innings.
Minor previously pitched for the Royals in 2017 after sitting out the 2015 and 2016 seasons following Tommy John surgery.
He owns a 71-66 career record with a 3.98 ERA and 1,048 strikeouts in 1,152 1/3 innings with the Atlanta Braves (2010-14), Royals, Rangers (2018-20) and A's.
