The Kansas City Royals signed right-hander Wily Peralta to a one-year contract with a club option, the team announced Tuesday.

Peralta will reportedly make $1.5 million this coming season. The option is worth $3 million with a $25,000 buyout.

Overall, Peralta is 47-52 with a 4.48 ERA over parts of six big-league seasons.
