The numbers on a Missouri man's winning Powerball ticket turned out to be the jersey numbers of several Kansas City Royals greats.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Royals announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year Major League contract with second baseman Chris Getz for the 2013 season, avoiding arbitration. Consistent with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed. The signing of Getz leaves right-handed pitcher Luke Hochevar as the clubs only unsigned arbitration-eligible...
The Royals and second baseman Chris Getz avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing a $1.05 million, one-year contract that includes up to $150,000 in performance bonuses.
Getz, who made $967,500 last season, batted .275 with 17 RBIs in nine stolen bases in 64 games last season. He spent three stretches on the disabled list, including for a fractured left thumb that ended his season...
The Kansas City Royals have signed infielder Chris Getz to a one-year contract. The deal is worth $1.05 million plus $150,000 in potential incentives, The Kansas City Star reported. Getz is projected to the team's second baseman next season. Getz hit .275 last season in 64 games. He was sidelined for the final six weeks with a broken thumb.
The Royals need another front of the rotation starter, even after acquiring Ervin Santana and Jeremy Guthrie. With a $70MM “soft” salary cap (which many argue is too low), the Royals say they’re willing to trade top outfield prospect Wil Myers for starting pitching. Names such as Tampa Bay’s James Shields and Boston’s Jon Lester have come up, but so far they’re nothing...
Everyone has Powerball fever these days, including fans of baseball’s worst franchise. Kansas City Royals fans and lottery players have losing in common.

Mark Hill of Dearborn, Mo., selected numbers of...
One of the two recent massively (now) rich Power Ball winners is from Dearborn, Missouri and apparently a Royals fan. The jackpot of $580 million will be split with that winner and one other, but the numbers that were played are currently the big story. The winning numbers which were played by the man only a half hour outside of Kansas City were all of famous Kansas City Royals...
Both Ryan Dempster and Scott Feldman battled injuries in 2012, but that has not deterred the Kansas City Royals one bit. The Royals were previously interested in signing Dempster, but now they have apparently turned their focus to Feldman. Neither pitcher suffered severe injury in 2012, but they both missed time.
Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star says the Royals, who have...
The Kansas City Royals were on the tip of everyone’s tongues earlier this week when rumors of a trade with the Red Sox surfaced. They may not end up landing Jon Lester, but the fates could be on the Royals side after Wednesday’s Powerball drawing. The $587.5 million jackpot was finally won this week with the winning numbers — 5, 23, 16, 22, 29 and the powerball, 6 — lining...
