KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Former All-Star catcher Ramon Hernandez has agreed to a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals.
The 37-year-old is a career .263 hitter in 15 seasons in the major leagues. His 757 RBIs since the start of the 1999 season are fifth among major league catchers during that span, and his 169 homers are seventh-most among big league catchers.
Hernandez played in 17 games last year for the Los Angeles Dodgers, batting .208 with two doubles, three home runs and six RBIs. He was released June 22.
He was an All-Star in 2003 with Oakland, hitting 21 home runs. He also has played for San Diego, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Colorado.
Kansas City announced the agreement Tuesday.
