The Kansas City Royals have signed outfielder Jon Jay to a one-year deal.
Jay, who turns 33 in nine days, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is totally fine for a guy with solid defense who can play all three outfield spots.
No word on the terms yet, but Kansas City is a good landing spot for Jay. He’ll figure to got a lot of playing time there given the departure of Lorenzo Cain and the relatively thin competition among the rest of the Royals outfielders.
Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.
The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.
