Royals Sign Sidney Ponson

According to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star, the Royals signed pitcher Sidney Ponson to a minor league deal.  Ponson, 32, posted a 5.04 ERA, 3.85 K/9, and 3.18 BB/9 in 135.6 innings for the Rangers and Yankees last year.  He did post a very strong 54.5% groundball rate.  The Rangers released Ponson in June due to "disrespectful and adverse reactions to situations unbecoming of teammates."
