Royals' Danny Duffy: Signs five-year extension with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy agreed to a five-year, $65 million extension with the Royals on Monday, Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports.

On a per start basis, Duffy was one of the best pitchers in the American League last season. His 20 percent K-BB% ranked eighth among qualified starters last season, ahead of pitchers like Corey Kluber, Chris Archer and David Price. He has not proven he can log 200-plus innings in a season, but if he does that in 2017, he will turn out to be a draft day bargain. This deal allows the Royals to lock in Duffy on what could turn out to be a very team-friendly contract, while also giving Duffy financial stability.

Royals' Eric Hosmer: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer agreed to a one-year, $12.25 million deal with the Royals on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

He received a $4 million raise over what he made in 2016 and will become a free agent after the 2017 season. Hosmer is entering his age-27 season, for what it's worth, and coming off a year where he set career highs in home runs (25) and RBI (104), but his .266 average was his lowest mark since 2012.

Royals' Garin Cecchini: Receives spring training invitation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cecchini received a spring training invitation from the Royals on Saturday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Cecchini was reported to have a shot at the 25-man roster after being traded to Milwaukee in 2016, but he spent the entire year with Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he slashed just .271/.325/.380 in 469 plate appearances. He'll make another run at the big leagues in 2017 with the Royals, but he'll likely need to show some significant improvement and receive some depth chart help to get there.

Royals' Chris Withrow: Invited to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Withrow received a spring training invitation from the Royals on Saturday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Control issues have plagued Withrow throughout his career, and a 2014 Tommy John surgery has kept him out of action in 2015, but the Royals are making a minimal investment in the hope that he can find both health and the strike zone in 2017. The 27-year-old posted a 3.58 ERA and 4.1 BB/9 in 37.2 innings for the Braves during 2016.

Royals' Bobby Parnell: Invited to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Parnell received a spring training invitation from the Royals on Saturday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Parnell hasn't shown major league effectiveness since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2014, so this is strictly a reclamation project for the Royals. He has shown top-shelf bullpen stuff in the past; it's just a question if he will ever be able to find that stuff again.
