Blue Jays Sign Kyle Davies To Minor League Deal

The Blue Jays have signed right-hander Kyle Davies to a minor league deal, reports Jason Martinez of MLB Depth Charts.  (Twitter link)  Davies became a free agent yesterday after clearing release waivers from the Royals.

In 151 career games (144 of them starts) with the Royals and Braves, Davies has a 5.59 ERA.  Davies, who turns 28 next month, had a 6.75 ERA in 13 starts for Kansas City this season, though his xFIP was over two runs lower (4.43).  While he posted career highs in K/BB ratio (1.92) and K/9 (7.3), Davies couldn't keep men off base, allowing an ungainly 12.3 H/9. 

Davies actually earned the fourth-highest salary of any Kansas City player this season, earning $3.2MM.  He was in his final season of arbitration and is eligible for free agency next year.
