Royals agree to terms with Getz on one-year contract

|

The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year Major League contract with second baseman Chris Getz for the 2013 season, avoiding arbitration.  Consistent with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.  The signing of Getz leaves right-handed pitcher Luke Hochevar as the club’s only unsigned arbitration-eligible player.

Getz, 29, batted .275 with 17 RBI and nine stolen bases in 64 games for Kansas City in 2012.  He spent three stints on the disabled list due to various injuries, including a left thumb fracture which ended his season on August 17.  The Royals were 30-25 in his 55 starts.  Getz was acquired in a trade with the Chicago White Sox on November 5, 2009.
