The Kansas City Royals have signed reliever Jose Mijares to a 1-year contract, giving manager Ned Yost another left-handed option late in games.
The team announced the deal Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed.

Mijares is currently 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in eight outings for Tigres de Aragua in the Venezuelan Winter League, with seven strikeout and no walks.
Royals general manager Dayton Moore envisions Mijares as a situational lefty. Mijares fills out the Royals' 40-man roster.
