KANSAS CITY, MO (December 13, 2019) – The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has signed right-handed pitcher Jesse Hahn to a one-year Major League contract. Per club policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

He’s pitched in parts of five Major League seasons with San Diego (2014), Oakland (2015-17) and KC (2019), going 18-21 with a 4.33 ERA (140 ER in 290.2 IP).
