Royals interested in Baldwin

As long as he's cheap, this signing is alright. I think he'd basically be like Suppan. I think he's a fly ball pitcher who would give up his share of homers, but would eat up some innings. I would just really like a signing I could get more excited about.

Royals interested in Baldwin

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In an effort to add some experience to their pitching staff, the Royals have an eye on former Seattle right-hander James Baldwin.

General manager Allard Baird said the club was working Wednesday on trying to sign Baldwin as a non-roster invitee. Baldwin went 7-10 while starting 23 games with the Mariners last year. He had a 5.28 earned run average in 150 innings and opponents batted .298 against him.

"He has a very good makeup and we'd like to add a guy like that," Baird said. "We could know something on that in the next 24 hours."

Baldwin fanned 88 and walked 49 last season. The Mariners did not pick up the option on his contract.

Baird said the Royals would also like to add another veteran for their bullpen before pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training on Feb. 14 in Surprise, Ariz.
