Kip Wells has reportedly reached a tentative agreement to pitch the remainder of the season with the Royals. The former Pirates, Cardinals and Colorado Rockies right hander will bring his 10 years of major league experience to the Kansas City bullpen thus relieving pressure on a heavily worked staff.
The trade of Horacio Ramirez, coupled with Ron Mahay's foot injury, Leo Nunez's health issues and Ramon Ramirez's apparent ailments have Trey Hillman reeling for help beyond the outfield wall. Wells, a starter for most of his career, had logged time in the Rockies pen this year before his release. A career 65-93 4.64 ERA is nothing that brings excitement to anyone, but he shouldn't be much worse than Fulchino or Peralta are right now.
The deal should be a prorated salary that should fall between $90-100,00.
