Royals sign Zach Miner

I thought we were done with our baseball-related posts for 2010, but I guess there's one short one to do.

Earlier today, former Tigers swingman Zach Miner signed with the Kansas City Royals.

Miner told MLB.com he had hoped to stay on with the Tigers, but the offer the Royals made was better for him.

There were a few teams that checked in, and the Tigers and the Royals were the most aggressive. But in the end, we just felt like KC was going to be a very good opportunity going forward, not only for this year, but for a few years down the road."

Miner lost his entire 2010 season after having Tommy John Surgery. He was designated for assignment in November to make room for Victor Martinez.

Terms of the deal have not been stated.

But hey, if Detroit still needs a swing man, I hear Chad Durbin is still available ...
