Olivo Staying With Royals

TUESDAY: The 2010 mutual option is for $3.25MM, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.  Olivo decided to stay because he was promised the starting catcher job.  John Buck is still expected to receive plenty of playing time, and catcher Brayan Pena was added to the 40-man roster.

MONDAY: According to Jesse Spector of the New York Daily News, the catcher Miguel Olivo will remain with the Royals for the 2009 season.  Hell yes!  The Royals exercised his $2.7MM option, and Olivo chose not to void it.  Another mutual option for 2010 was added.

Olivo, 30, hit .255/.278/.444 in 306 plate appearances.  He continued to show good power against lefties.  He threw out 42.4% of baserunners, up from 32.9% in '07.
