KANSAS CITY -- The Royals have signed two veterans to Minor League deals, including third baseman/outfielder Cody Asche, who made the White Sox Opening Day roster last season.

The Royals also signed 30-year-old right-hander Mike Broadway, an original fourth-round pick of the Braves in 2005 who made some mechanical changes in the Tampa Bay system last year, according to scouts, and increased his velocity from the low 90s to 95-98.

Broadway pitched in 25 games for the Giants from 2015-16 and posted a 6.75 ERA. He could be in the mix for a bullpen spot for the Royals.
