Analysis: Hammel's fantasy value reached its peak when he won 15 games for the eventual World Series champion Cubs last season. The 33-year-old appears nothing more than a stopgap option on a Kansas City team that hasn't resembled a contender thus far, so owners may be better off looking elsewhere.

Analysis: Hammel began his 12th major league season, with his sixth different team. He signed a $16 million, two-year contract in February with the Royals, who needed a replacement in the rotation following the death of Yordano Ventura in a Dominican Republic car crash. He won a career-high 15 games for the world champion Cubs last season but was left off the postseason roster.
Feb. 6 12:24 PM PT1:24 PM MT2:24 PM CT3:24 PM ET15:24 ET20:24 GMT4:24 1:24 PM MST3:24 PM EST3:54 PM VEN0:24 UAE (+1)2:24 PM CT-The Royals have agreed with Hammel on a two-year, $16 million contract.
Analysis: The veteran right-hander will take the rotation spot of the late Yordano Ventura after winning a career-high 15 games for the world champion Cubs last season. Hammel was left off Chicago's postseason roster, however, and had a $12 million option declined by the club in November. The 34-year-old is 84-87 with a 4.42 ERA over 11 major league seasons and has previous American League stints with Tampa Bay, Baltimore and Oakland.
