Justin Grimm signs 1-year, $1.25 million deal with Royals
The Kansas City Royals signed reliever Justin Grimm to a 1-year, $1.25 million contract.
Grimm didn't have to wait long to find a new home after being released by the Cubs on Thursday. The 29-year-old right-hander averaged a 3.29 ERA from 2014-2016 but he saw that number climb to 5.53 over 55 1/3 innings last season. He probably won't see any save opportunities in Kansas City.
Prior to Thursday's release, numberFire's models projected Grimm to record a 3.59 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and 23.9 strikeout percentage across 55 1/3 innings.
