News: Furcal (hamstring) signed a minor-league deal with the Royals on Monday, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.
Impact: Furcal suffered a torn hamstring in December, and will continue to rehab in the Royals' minor league camp. The 37-year-old struggled in limited MLB action last season, and coming off the hamstring injury, it's possible he'll end up staying in the minors for the majority of the season.
