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.
