Press Release Kansas City Royals:


The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has agreed to terms on 2015 Major League contracts with left-handed pitchers
Brandon Finnegan, Brian Flynn and John Lamb, right-handed pitchers Aaron Brooks and Michael Mariot, catcher Erik Kratz, infielders Cheslor Cuthbert and Ryan Jackson and outfielders Lane Adams and Jorge Bonifacio.  Consistent with club policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Finnegan, 21, made his Major League debut last season after being drafted 17th overall in June out of Texas Christian University.  He became the first player in big league history to pitch in both the Major League World Series and College World Series in the same season.

Brooks, 24, was named Pacific Coast League Postseason MVP as well as Omaha Pitcher of the Year, after going 12-3 with a 3.88 ERA (60 ER in 139.0 IP) and 97 strikeouts in 25 appearances (23 starts) at Triple-A. 

Mariot, 26, made his Major League debut and pitched in 17 games last season for the Royals.  He earned his first big league victory on June 27, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings in an 8-6 triumph over the Los Angeles Angels.

Adams, 25, also made his Major League debut in September last season, after being named the Northwest Arkansas (AA) Player of the Year.  He was also named a Texas League All-Star, batting .269 with 25 doubles, 11 homers and 38 stolen bases.

The Royals have eight players who remain unsigned for the 2015 season: right-handed pitchers Jandel Gustave and Yordano Ventura, catcher Francisco Pena, infielders Orlando Calixte and Christian Colon and outfielders Reymond Fuentes, Terrance Gore and Paulo Orlando.
