Chen agrees to re-sign with Royals

Free-agent pitcher Bruce Chen is set to re-sign with the Kansas City Royals.

The team said Saturday that Chen’s agreed to a one-year contract, pending a physical.

The 33-year-old lefty led the Royals in wins last season, going 12-7 with a 4.17 ERA in 33 games, including 23 starts.

He began the year at Triple-A Omaha, making 10 relief appearances before joining the rotation on May 30.
