The Wait is OVER...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Outfielder Matt Stairs agreed Tuesday to a $1 million, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals.

Stairs, left-handed hitter, batted .292 for Pittsburgh last season with 20 homers, including a 461-foot drive on April 5, the longest at the Houston Astros' new ballpark. He had 57 RBIs.

The 35-year-old free agent has played for six other teams during his 11-year career. He is expected to fill a void created by the departure of outfielder Raul Ibanez, who agreed to a $13.25 million, three-year contract with Seattle.

Stairs has a career .266 batting average with 176 homers. He is third in homers among Canadian-born players, trailing Colorado's Larry Walker (351) and Jeff Heath (194), who played from 1936 to 1949.

In addition to his base salary, Stairs would get a $100,000 bonus if he has 375 plate appearances.




So there you go... ;-)

Could this be a sign that KC. is set on giving DeJesus another year in the minors?

Yup, put Stairs back on your draft sheets. Not high, mind you, but put him on there. He could be a good waiver wire pick up when you need some power.
