Homer Bailey, Royals Reportedly Agree to Minor League Contract

The Kansas City Royals and starting pitcher Homer Bailey reached an agreement on a contract Saturday following his release by the Los Angeles Dodgers in December.

Per The Athletic's Rustin Dodd, Bailey received a minor league deal from the Royals with an invitation to spring training.

Bailey spent the first 12 years of his MLB career with the Cincinnati Reds before getting dealt to L.A. in December as part of a blockbuster trade that saw outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig and starting pitcher Alex Wood head to Cincy.
