Here are the day’s minor moves:
- The Royals have agreed to a minor league deal with righty Chien-Ming Wang, as Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports (Twitter links). The Taiwanese veteran would earn a $1MM base rate if he makes the major league roster, and can achieve up to $1.5MM in incentives in a starting capacity or as much as $250K as a reliever. Wang, who’ll turn 36 just before the season starts, hasn’t cracked the majors since 2013. He spent last year with the Triple-A affiliates of the Braves and Mariners, and also made three starts for the independent Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. In his 130 innings of affiliated ball, Wang posted a 5.88 ERA and registered just 61 strikeouts against 35 walks.
