KCKansas City Royals
2014 Record: 89-73
#49 Joe Blanton
Feb 13: Blanton has come out of retirement and signed a minor league deal with the Royals, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. That was a short retirement. Blanton will almost definitely open the season in Triple-A, considering he would have to beat out Edinson Volquez and Kris Medlen for the fifth starter spot despite not pitching for an entire year. Blanton was also awful in 2013, pitching a 6.04 ERA and 1.613 WHIP. Him returning to the majors would be a cool story, but it's not happening barring a slew of injuries to the Royals' rotation.
