KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Royals agreed to terms with left-hander Tim Collins on a one-year contract Thursday to avoid arbitration, and signed veteran pitchers Brad Penny and Guillermo Mota to minor league deals that include invitations to spring training.
Collins will make $1,362,500 this season, a substantial increase from the $534,500 he earned last season, when he was 3-6 with a 3.54 ERA in 66 appearances.
The 35-year-old Penny is trying to resurrect his career after missing last season to rest his right shoulder. Penny was 0-1 with a 6.11 ERA with the Giants in 2012.
Mota, who is 39-45 with a 3.94 ERA over 14 seasons, is coming off a 100-game suspension for a second positive drug test. His agent says it was for clenbuterol found in children's cough syrup.
