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.

The 32-year-old began last season with the Yankees but was traded at the deadline to the Detroit Tigers in the deal that brought catcher Ivan Rodriguez to the Bronx.

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.
