 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The Royals and veteran second baseman Mark Grudzielanek agreed to exercise his $4.5 million option for 2008.
``The Royals are delighted to be able to reach an agreement on a contract extension with Mark,'' Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. ``He is a very impactful part of our baseball team.''
The 37-year-old Grudzielanek is hitting .306 with 26 doubles, five home runs and 40 RBIs in his second season in Kansas City. He won his first Gold Glove award last year, when he hit .297 and led the club with 85 runs.
The 13-year veteran is a career .289 hitter and needs 124 hits to reach 2,000 for his career.
