Royals signed RHP Jeff Suppan to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Omaha.
Suppan was released by the Giants at the end of spring training after posting a 5.50 ERA across 18 Cactus League innings. He'll serve as depth for Kansas City.
Suppan returns to KC where he played from 1998-2002. Suppan can serve as a reliever or starter so he is good depth to have. I understand why he didn't want to stick around in SF because he wouldn't have much of a chance to play so I wish him luck in KC.
