Royals Sign Outfielder; Spent Three Seasons With Kansas City

Bringing back a familiar face.

The Kansas City Royals have signed free agent outfielder Jorge Bonifacio to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Bonifacio appeared in 187 games with the Royals between 2017-19, slashing .247/.319/.408, with 21 home runs, 66 RBIs, one stolen base and 89 runs scored.

He then spent a season each with the Detroit Tigers and the Philadelphia Phillies, recording a lackluster .206/.264/.299 slash line, two home runs, 19 RBIs and eight runs scored across 37 games.

The 29-year-old spent the majority of last season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, the Phillies' affiliate.
