Royals agree to terms with Getz and Pena on one-year contracts

The Royals announced on Monday that the club has agreed to terms one-year Major League contracts with infielder Chris Getz and catcher Brayan Pena, avoiding arbitration.  Consistent with club policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.  The Royals now have five remaining arbitration-eligible players: pitchers Luke Hochevar, Felipe Paulino and Jonathan Sanchez; and outfielders Alex Gordon and Mitch Maier. 

Getz, 28, batted .255 (97-for-380) with six doubles, 26 RBI and 21 stolen bases in 118 games for the Royals in 2011.  He was acquired by Kansas City in a trade with the Chicago White Sox on November 6, 2009.  Born in Southfield, Mich., he now resides in Grosse Pointe, Mich.

Pena, who just turned 30 on January 7, batted .248 (55-for-222) with 11 doubles, three home runs and 24 RBI in 72 games for the Royals in 2011.  Pena set career highs in games played, at bats, hits, doubles and RBI.  He was acquired by Kansas City in a waiver claim from the Atlanta Braves on May 30, 2008.  Born in Havana, Cuba, he now resides in Miami, Fla.

I follow Pena for some time and I can say that he really makes a good job. Good luck in the future!
