The Kansas City Royals sign Matt Diaz:
"The only way he would compete for a big-league job at this point would be if one of our guys under major-league contract gets hurt. He knows that coming in, but we do like him."
Had Diaz accepted the O's roster claim he would of been on the 40 man roster. Here, he is guaranteed nothing. Very surprising chain of events. KC Blogger can't be happier.
