Mike Minor returns to Royals, joining vastly improved starting rotation

Mike Minor returns to Royals, joining vastly improved starting rotation”

That's when the former first rounder proceeded to sign in Arlington on a 3-year/$28M commitment. Jeff Passan of ESPN is now reporting that the deal of the multi-year variety, but the fiscal terms haven't been disclosed yet.

Left-handed starter Mike Minor and the Kansas City Royals are in agreement on a two-year deal that is pending a physical, sources confirmed to ESPN's Jeff Passan. He was an All-Star with the Rangers in 2019, finishing 14-10 with a 3.59 ERA and 200 strikeouts in 208.1 innings. Last week, Charlie Morton signed with the Atlanta Braves after two seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays.

This will be Minor's second time in a Kansas City uniform, as the left-hander previously pitched for the team in 2017. After joining Oakland at the trade deadline, he posted a 5.48 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 27 strikeouts, seven walks, and a complete-game shutout over 21 1/3 innings. ERA predictors were also a bit more sympathetic to Minor's performance in 2020, with a 4.64 FIP, 4.50 xFIP, and 4.20 SIERA.

During that season, Minor posted 1 2.55 ERA, which helped him land a three-year, $28 million contract with the Texas Rangers during free agency that offseason.

Minor will now join Danny Duffy as the veteran staples of the K.C. rotation, with Brad Keller entering his fourth Major League Baseball campaign and youngsters Brady Singer and Kris Bubic looking to build off respectable rookie seasons. Emailed daily. Always free!
