Royals agree to terms with Paulino on a one-year contract for 2013


KANSAS CITY, MO (November 29, 2012) — The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year Major League contract with right-handed pitcher Felipe Paulino for the 2013 season, avoiding arbitration.  Consistent with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.  The signing of Paulino leaves right-handed pitcher Luke Hochevar and second baseman Chris Getz as the club’s only unsigned arbitration-eligible players.

Paulino, 29, was 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA in seven starts for the Royals in 2012.  He made his last Major League start on June 6, missing the remainder of the season after undergoing ulnar collateral ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow on July 3.  The native of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic was acquired from Colorado on May 26, 2011.  He has appeared in 93 Major League games (61 starts) with Houston, Colorado and Kansas City.
