Royals Sign Zach Miner

The Royals have signed pitcher Zach Miner to a minor league contract, according to a team press release.  The 28-year-old missed all of 2010 after undergoing surgery on his right elbow in late May.

In four seasons for the Tigers, the right-hander registered a 4.24 ERA with 6.0 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9.  Miner has 35 starts to his credit but the bulk of them came in 2006 and 2008. 

Detroit designated Miner for assignment in late November but the two sides discussed a new deal soon after.  Miner gave the Tigs a solid 56.1% groundball rate in 2007 but that number slipped in '08 and '09.
