FOX SPORTS is reporting that the Royals and Scott Podsednik have reached a preliminary agreement.
The deal is believed to be in the range of one year and two million dollars, pending a physical which is set to be taken today.
Podsednik had a very good season in Chicago last season after practically being out of baseball the prior two years. The .277 career hitter is expected to be a cheaper upgrade over Coco Crisp, who was not tendered a contract after his club option was declined.
