Kris Medlan and Royals agree to $8.5 million, 2-year deal

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) After twice having Tommy John surgery, Kris Medlen was looking for a team to give him a chance.

The defending AL champions were willing to take the gamble.

Kansas City announced an $8.5 million, two-year contract Thursday with the former Atlanta right-hander, who missed all of last season and became a free agent when the Braves failed to offer a contract by the Dec. 2 deadline.
