The Kansas City Royals made a pair of free-agent moves Friday, agreeing to a $32 million, two-year contract with pitcher Michael Wacha and a $13 million, two-year deal with outfielder Hunter Renfroe, people familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the agreements had not been announced.

Wacha’s deal calls for a $16 million salary next year and contains a $16 million player option for 2025.
