Chris Young will be back with the Kansas City Royals next season as he signed a 2-year deal on Monday to return to the team. Young is 36 years old, but he might have been the most consistent pitcher in the Royals starting rotation as he went 11-6 with a 3.06 ERA. Kansas City is looking to add to their rotation, but bringing back a very good veteran like Young is a big move. He isn’t the most flashy pitcher anymore, but he finds ways to get batters out and win games most importantly.
Grade: A – The Royals are looking to sign a pitcher in free agency to add to their rotation. However, bringing back Chris Young adds stability to their rotation. Young was arguably their best pitcher last season and he won’t post amazing statistics, but he is very consistent.
