Royals Sign Dotel

Octavio Dotel is the latest get by Dayton Moore. Several news outlets, including the Boston Globe, are reporting that Dotel will get $5 million for one year (with a chance to earn $2 million more in performance bonuses) to join the Royals. Apparently the Royals outbid the Red Sox, the evil Yankees, and the Devil Rays. The Royals finally have a closer.

The Royals also signed John Bale, a 32 year-old lefty who has been pitching in Japan for the past three years. Bale signed a two-year contract worth $4 million. In five starts and 34 relief appearances last season he was 1–2 with six saves and a 2.93 ERA.
