SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The Kansas City Royals have agreed to one-year deals with Mike Aviles and Alcides Escobar, the team's projected starters at third base and shortstop.

The team announced the deals Sunday without providing financial terms.

Aviles hit .304 last season, while Escobar, who was acquired in December from Milwaukee in the Zack Greinke trade, hit .235 last season as a rookie with the Brewers.

Right-handed pitchers Kanekoa Texeira, Kevin Pucetas and Henry Barrera, left-handed pitcher Everett Teaford and catcher Lucas May signed one-year contracts.

Texeira was 1-0 with a 4.64 ERA in 27 relief appearances after being claimed June 3 off waivers from the Mariners.

May hit .189 in 12 games after a September promotion, while Pucetas, Barrera and Teaford have never been in the majors.
