Royals sign pitcher Zach Miner to a minor league contract

The Royals announced today that the club has signed right-handed pitcher Zach Miner to a minor league contract for the 2011 season. 

The 28-year-old Miner missed the entire 2010 campaign with a right elbow injury that required surgery in late May.  The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder is 25-20 with a 4.24 ERA in 157 career Major League appearances, including 35 starts, for the Detroit Tigers from 2006-2009.  Selected by the Atlanta Braves in the fourth round of the 2000 June Free Agent Draft, Miner was acquired by the Tigers along with pitcher Roman Colon in exchange for pitcher Kyle Farnsworth on July 31, 2005.
