Kyle Farnsworth needed a job. The Kansas City Royals needed bullpen health. Wednesday the two parties agreed on a two-year, $9.25-million deal according to ESPN.com. The deal is pending the results of a physical.
In 10 seasons and for four teams, Farnsworth has posted a 30-48 record with a 4.47 ERA. Primarily used as a set-up man in his career, Farnsworth moved between roles with the Yankees last season but managed a 3.65 ERA in 45 games. He struggled with the Tigers, posting a 6.75 ERA in 16 games.
