SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Right-hander Clay Buchholz is the Kansas City Royals latest reclamation pitching project.
The two-time All-Star and the Royals have finalized a minor league contract on Tuesday, and he would get a $1.5 million, one-year deal if added to the 40-man roster. The 32-year-old could earn $250,000 in performance bonuses: $25,000 per start from 10-19.
Ryan Madson and Joe Blanton are among the pitchers who revived their careers with the Royals.
