The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has signed right-handed pitcher Michael Ynoa to a minor league contract.

He made Chicago's Opening Day roster in 2017, when he went 1-0 with a 5.90 ERA (19 ER in 29 IP) in 22 appearances. Ynoa made his Major League debut in 2016 and posted a 3.00 ERA (10 ER in 30 IP) with 30 strikeouts (9.0 K/9) and a .183 opponents' average (20-for-109) in 23 appearances. 

Ynoa (ee-NO-uh) originally signed with Oakland out of the Dominican Republic on July 2, 2008.
