Royals' Tyler Collins: Agrees to minor-league deal with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (ribs) signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

Collins split time between Triple-A Toledo and Detroit last season, slashing a respectable .288/.358/.462 for the Mud Hens but struggling to a .193/.278/.333 line with the Tigers. The 27-year-old has seen major-league action with the Tigers in each of the previous four seasons, but his lackluster .235/.299/.380 slash line over that stretch will likely limit him to an organizational depth role in 2018.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Pleads guilty to DUI charge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (elbow) pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in Overland Park, Kan. last week and has been placed on one year's probation, KCTV News reports.

Duffy was charged with DUI in late August after police stopped him on his way back from an elbow exam. The lefty did not face any immediate disciplinary action, and there has been no indication that he will from the Royals or Major League Baseball. There is no unified, league-wide disciplinary code for these matters. A spokesman for the team said Tuesday that the plea is a matter between Duffy, his representatives and the city. Duffy is expected to be ready for spring training after undergoing surgery to remove loose bodies from his elbow in early October.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera agreed to a one-year, $7,937,500 deal with the Royals on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

This was his last offseason as an arbitration-eligible player. Herrera lost his role as the ninth-inning man in early September during the midst of his worst season to date. The right-hander posted a 4.25 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 59.1 innings, but still recorded 26 saves on the campaign. Heading into 2018, there's a good chance Herrera will get another chance as closer, but don't expect a long leash if he begins to struggle.

Royals' Nathan Karns: Avoids arbitration with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Karns (forearm) agreed to a one-year, $1.375 million deal with Kansas City on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Karns recorded a 4.17 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 45.1 innings during the first two months of the year, but went down with forearm tightness in late May, which led to season-ending surgery to treat thoracic outlet syndrome. At this point, it's expected that he will be able to return prior to Opening Day, although there hasn't been an update on his status in the past couple months. Nevertheless, once Karns is able to regain his health, the right-hander should jump right back into the rotation for the Royals.
