What a difference a year makes for Justin Maxwell.

When the Royals re-signed Bruce Chen to a one-year, $4.25 million contract this week, it was generally met with tepid approval. One could argue that he’s 90 percent of the pitcher Jason Vargas is for half of the salary and one-quarter the commitment. So, that’s not bad. But then came the fallout. First, it was…

From the Royals’ official Twitter account … #Royals agree to terms with OF Justin Maxwell on a one-year contract for 2014, avoiding arbitration. — Kansas City Royals (@Royals) January 21, 2014 No word yet on the financial terms but it will be a big raise either way for Maxwell, who made the MLB minimum in…

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend” was the theme today as Royals outfielder Justin Maxwell hit a walk-off grand slam in the 10th inning against the Rangers, clinching the AL West for the Athletics in the process.

But, don’t worry, it’s just for Chris Getz. The major criticism with the Royals’ decision to buy and not sell at the trade deadline was that they did nothing to address the black hole in their lineup at second base. Now they’ll be forced to try something a little different after Getz suffered a sprained…

Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

Kyle Kendrick was hit on the back of the helmet by a pitch while batting yesterday and the Phillies right-hander has been diagnosed with a “mild” concussion. Of course, because so-called “mild” concussions are still brain injuries that label tends not to mean a whole lot, as Justin Maxwell of the Astros proved most recently.…

From Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle comes word that the Astros have placed outfielder Justin Maxwell on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Jimmy Paredes was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding roster move.

Justin Maxwell left last night’s game in the fourth inning after the Astros outfielder suffered an apparent concussion attempting to make a diving catch.

Justin Maxwell hit just .128 in 11 games while on a minor-league rehab assignment for a fractured left hand, but the Astros have activated him from the disabled list anyway.
