Royals agree to minor league deal with Kameron Loe

USA TODAY Sports

The right-hander will join AAA Omaha as bullpen depth.

The Kansas City Royals have agreed to sign right-hander Kameron Loe to a minor league contract, according to a baseball source. Loe will report to Triple-A Omaha, and can opt out of his deal if he is not on the major league roster by June 15th. The deal is pending a physical.

Loe, 32, became a free agent after opting out of his minor league deal with the Giants at the end of spring training. He was 2-0 with a 3.38 ERA in eight innings over five appearances during spring training with San Francisco, but ultimately did not make the team and left the organization in an effort to latch on elsewhere.

Kansas City has made a few additions of veterans on minor league deals in the last couple of months, signing Loe, Brett Tomko, and the since-released Brad Penny with the intention of storing a bunch of veteran arms at Triple-A. The team suffered a major bullpen loss when Luke Hochevar went down during spring training, and will look at depth options like Loe to fill in if further injuries occur during the regular season.

In nine major league seasons, Loe is the owner of a lifetime 34-43 record and 4.49 ERA in 322 appearances (48 starts). He split last year between the Mariners, Cubs and Braves organizations, posting a combined 2-3 record and 7.09 ERA in 26.2 innings over 20 appearances.
