He's not a strikeout pitcher and his career BB:K rate is poor- which is surprising because he's a huge guy (6'7 250 lb).
Also, the Royals are shopping Billy Butler. The Mariners are trying hard to land him. The O's may have some young pitching the Royals crave- Matusz and Arrieta. Any interest here?

Sure there is. You can sign a MiL player for almost any amount you want. Usually, when the money gets beyond about 500K they're signed to a ML deal, but it's not required.
