KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Kansas City Royals signed right-hander Zack Greinke and outfielder Mark Teahen to one-year deals on Thursday, getting their final two arbitration-eligible players under contract for 2008.
The 24-year-old Greinke signed a $1.4 million deal with a $25,000 bonus each for reaching 160, 175 and 190 innings pitched. He would receive an additional $50,000 if he pitches 215 innings.
Greinke was 7-7 with a 3.69 ERA in 52 appearances, including 14 starts. His 2.42 ERA after the All-Star break was third-best in the majors for pitchers with a minimum of 50 innings.
