The Kansas City Royals agreed to a minor contract on Saturday with former Cincinnati Reds veteran starter Homer Bailey with an invitation to spring training. The 32-year-old has spent his entire 12-year career in Cincinnati,
making 212 starts and going 67-77 with a 4.56 ERA. Bailey was traded from the Reds to the Dodgers in a seven-player deal in December, then was released and became a free agent.
Bailey has dealt with injuries the past few years, though, starting the season on the disabled list each year from 2015-17. Bailey made eight starts total in 2015 and 2016.
