Royals land Riske, Day, and Duckworth

The Royals signed David Riske to a one year contract. Riske went 1-2 with a 3.89 ERA and 28 K with the Red Sox and White Sox. They also signed Zach Day and Brandon Duckworth to minor league deals and invited them to spring training. Day went 2-5 with a 6.75 ERA while Duckworth went 1-5 with a 6.11 ERA. The Royals bullpen will be pretty good coming into 2007; With the signing of Octavio Dotel and David Riske, they now have a experienced bullpen which will be able to support their rotation.

CP - Octavio Dotel
RP - David Riske
RP - John Bale
RP - Todd Wellemeyer
RP - Joakim Soria
RP - Joel Peralta
RP - Jimmy Gobble

It is possible Brian Bannister, Scott Elarton, or Ryan Braun might be added to the bullpen as well.
