2nd Favorite Cubs Beard Guy to the Royals
Jason Hammel to the Royals a reported 2 year $16 million dollar deal. The Cubs declined his $12 mil option. This shouldn’t come as a surprise with the Cubs recent signings of the two red hairs Eddie Butler, Brett Anderson and also Mike Montgomery. He will fit into the 3rd slot in their rotation giving them a little upgrade in their starters.
Hammel in two years went 33-22 with a 3.59 ERA in 78 starts. He is 34 years old. It is a little sad to see when pieces leave on a championship team even though this is a good move not resigning him.
