Royals Agree on One-Year Deal with Outfielder Alex Rios

Royals Agree on One-Year Deal with Outfielder Alex Rios

Jason Miller/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Kansas City Royals and outfielder Alex Rios are taking a gamble on each other as they've agreed on a one-year deal worth $11 million.

With the loss of Norichika Aoki and Billy Butler, the reigning American League champs needed a boost on offense, and they're hoping that Rios can help fill the void.

An 11-year veteran, the 33-year-old Rios is coming off a down season for his standards. While he did hit .280 in 131 games with the Texas Rangers, Rios was held to just four home runs and 17 stolen bases.

In 2013, Rios hit .278 with 18 home runs, 81 RBIs, and stole 42 bases while playing for the Rangers as well as the Chicago White Sox.

The team also recently agreed on a two-year deal with DH Kendrys Morales to help boost an offense that ranked 14th overall in Major League Baseball in runs scored.

In 2014, the Royals made the playoffs for the first time since 1985.
