Royals re-sign Shane Costa to a minor league contract
The Royals announced today that the club has agreed to terms with outfielder Shane Costa on a minor league contract for the 2010 season. Costa will not receive an invitation to Major League Spring Training.
Costa, 28, has been a member of the KC system since the club tabbed him in the second round of the 2003 Draft out of Cal State Fullerton. He played in just one game in 2009 before a lower leg injury ended his season. The left-handed hitting outfielder has a .254 career average at the Major League level since debuting in 2005. Costa lives in Huntington Beach, Calif.
