Kyle Farnsworth signs with Royals

Kansas City announced on Saturday that it had agreed to terms with hard throwing former Atlanta Braves and NY Yankee reliever Kyle Farnsworth on a two-year, $9.25 million deal that includes a club option for 2011.

Under the terms of the deal, Farnsworth will make $4.25 million next season and $4.5 million in 2010. The club option in 2011 is worth $5.25 million with a $500,000 buyout. Farnsworth could also earn an additional $750,000 per season in performance bonuses.

Farnsworth and the Royals had reached a preliminary agreement earlier in the week, but the announcement came today after Farnsworth passed his physical.
