Royals sign 3 players, avoid arbitration

(kcroyals) The Kansas City Royals avoided salary arbitration with 3 players, Eric Hosmer, Luke Hochevar and Emilio Bonifacio, by signing them to new contracts.

 

Hosmer, who jumped back from a subpar 2012 to become the Royals Player of the Year in '13, got the biggest raise. He went from last year's $528,250 to a rousing $3.6 million for '14.

Hochevar, making a successful shift from the starting rotation to the bullpen, signed for $5.2 million plus performance bonuses. He earned $4.56 million last year.

Bonifacio, obtained from the Blue Jays to play second base in the last part of the season, agreed to $3.5 million. His 2013 salary was $2.6 million.

In addition, Hosmer and Bonifacio will earn an additional $50,000 by making the All-Star team.

That left three arbitration-eligible players unsigned prior to Friday's deadline for exchanging salary figures -- pitchers Greg Holland and Aaron Crow and outfielder Justin Maxwell. Pitcher Tim Collins and catcher Brett Hayes signed earlier.
