Kelvin Herrera, Nate Karns agree to deals with Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals agreed with reliever Kelvin Herrera and starter Nate Karns on one-year contracts Friday to avoid arbitration, leaving reliever Brandon Maurer as their only player still on track for a hearing next month.

Herrera will make $7,937,500, an increase from $5,325,000. He would get a $50,000 bonus if he's an All-Star, which he was in 2015 and 2016.

He was just 2-2 with a 4.25 ERA last season after taking on the full-time closer job.
