Royals sign Miner to Minor League deal

Royals sign Miner to Minor League deal

The Royals announced on Friday that they have inked right-hander Zach Miner to a Minor League contract.

Miner, 28, who has spent four years in the Majors, all with the Tigers, missed the entire 2010 season with a right elbow injury; he underwent surgery on the elbow in May. In 2009, Miner made 51 appearances, including five starts, compiling a 4.29 ERA. Miner has a career 4.24 ERA in 157 appearances, of which 35 were starts.

Miner, a fourth-round selection by the Braves in the 2000 First-Year Player Draft, was shipped to Detroit in 2005 in a deal that sent reliever Kyle Farnsworth to Atlanta.
