      Royals' John Lannan: Signs minor-league deal with Royals

      Lannan signed a minor-league contract with the Royals, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports. Lannan has 148 big-league starts to his name, but none of those have come since 2013, and he spent all of last season with Triple-A Albuquerque in the Rockies organization. After posting a 5.39 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 4.9 K/9 for Albuquerque, the 31-year-old lefty will be a long shot to make the Royals' major-league squad out of spring training.
