The Kansas City Royals are signing right-handed pitcher Wily Peralta to a one-year deal, according to Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star.

Peralta will receive a $1.525M guarantee, $1.5M of which will go to his 2018 salary with the remaining $25K allocated to a buyout for a $3M option in 2019. Additionally, Peralta could earn an additional $1.25M per season in performance incentives.

Peralta was outrighted in early August by the Milwaukee Brewers after a dreadful stretch that saw him yield ten home runs and fifty earned runs across 57 1/3-innings.

During his 6 seasons with the Brewers, Peralta posted a 4.48 ERA with 6.5 K/9.
