Royals sign outfielder Brian Anderson

The Royals announced today that the club has signed outfielder Brian Anderson to a one-year Major League contract for the 2010 season.  Consistent with club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 27-year old Anderson, who bats and throws right handed, split his 2009 season between the White Sox and Red Sox.  The centerfielder was traded to the Red Sox on July 28 and proceeded to hit .294 with two home runs in limited duty down the stretch for the A.L. Wild Card winners.  The former first-round selection of the White Sox (15th overall) is a career .227 Major League hitter with 22 home runs in 335 games since making his debut for Chicago in 2005. 

Anderson, born in Tucson, Ariz., now resides in San Diego, Calif.
