Royals confirm deal with RHP Edinson Volquez
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Royals have made official what CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported nearly two weeks ago. That is, they have signed veteran right-hander Edinson Volquez.

The two-year deal includes a mutual option for 2017. It reportedly guarantees him $20 million.

The sometimes-erratic Volquez enjoyed his finest season since 2008 last year with Pittsburgh. He finished 13-7 with a 3.04 ERA and just 166 hits in 192 2/3 innings. His control improved dramatically as he walked 71.
