It was a slow week in Royals’ camp, but they did come to terms with a trio of players to avoid arbitration.

"The Royals announced that three arbitration-eligible players had also agreed to 2014 contracts, including first baseman Eric Hosmer, pitcher Luke Hochevar and utility man Emilio Bonifacio. Hosmer was the Royals’ Player of the Year in 2013. He went from last year’s $528,250 salary to a $3.6 million deal in 2014. Hochevar signed for $5.2 million plus performance bonuses. He earned $4.56 million last year. – Jeff Adcox, FanSided"

Kansas City also agreed to a one-year contract with Justin Maxwell, leaving pitchers Aaron Crow and Greg Holland as the only two arbitration-eligible players currently unsigned.
