Rios signed a one-year, $11 million deal with the Royals on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.
The 33-year-old spent last season with the Rangers, hitting .280/.311/.398 with 54 RBI, four home runs and 17 steals in 492 at-bats. While his power has tailed off in recent years, he's been extremely consistent from an average perspective, hitting between .278 and .280 in each of the last four seasons. Rios will likely be penciled in as the Royals' starting right fielder, as he joins an outfield rotation featuring Alex Gordon, Jarrod Dyson and Lorenzo Cain.
