Right-hander Cory Wade, who has postseason experience with the Dodgers and Yankees, is among three players signed by the Royals to Minor League contracts, the club announced on Saturday.

The others: Brian Bocock and Johermyn Chavez.

Wade hopped between three different Triple-A affiliates in 2013, posting a 3.86 ERA and 51/21 K/BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings for Iowa (Cubs), Durham (Rays) and Las Vegas (Mets). He has been used as both a starter and reliever.

    For a minor league deal, this is a good signing.

      Too bad the jays have done squat so far, expect another season of complete misery in Toronto.

    i think he had a stint with the rays a few years back as well

    he actually has some decent peripheral numbers but when the pressure is on in a tight situation with men on, thats when its a problem
