The Royals have signed right-handed pitcher Jason Hammel to a two-year deal with a mutual option for a third year, according to Fox Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal. The Royals had been reportedly been looking to add a pitcher ever since the unfortunate death of Yordano Ventura. The 34-year-old made 30 starts for the World Series champs, posting a 15-10 mark with a 3.83 ERA over 166.2 innings. It was with the Athletics in 2014 that Hammel appeared in relief against Kansas City in their dramatic wild-card game won by the Royals in 12 innings.
With Kansas City, Hammel will take the rotation spot of Yordano Ventura, who died in a January vehicle crash.
Two years later, Hammel was drafted in the 10th round by Tampa Bay.
The Royals also have Jason Vargas penciled into the starting rotation, leaving one job up for grabs when they converge next week in Surprise, Arizona. Duffy, it should be noted, has never thrown more than 200 innings in a season and struggled in the second half previous year. The young pitcher, who signed a $23 million, five-year deal shortly before opening day in 2015, was pronounced dead at the scene. Even with so many pending free agents after the 2017 season, it's clear the Royals aren't totally ready to wave the white flag on this current roster. For his career, he owns an ERA+ of 97 and a K/BB ratio of 2.48 across parts of 11 big-league seasons.
Hammel pitched for the Chicago Cubs last season but never got into a postseason game during the club's run to a World Series championship.
