The Royals sign Jason Kendall for some reason

This is so great:

Kendall last played in the bigs in 2010. It was with the Royals, and he hit .256/.318/.297. Unless you count his 57-game stint with the Cubs in 2007, he was last useful as a major leaguer about six years ago. I don’t know that he was ever a useful defensive catcher.

One can only assume that this signing fulfills the final step in some complex tontine or something which Dayton Moore is administering.

Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers fainted at Kirby Yates‘ charity event last night.

Myers was admitted to a local hospital and underwent a series of tests, but all came back normal and he feels fine today. The team believes it may have been a matter of Myers being dehydrated and that he should available to play in tomorrow night’s game against the Dodgers.
