    Royals make official deal with veteran reliever Chapman

    The Royals signed veteran reliever Aroldis Chapman to a $3.75 million, one-year contract Friday, a week after agreeing to terms with the seven-time All-Star, who is coming off a lackluster season with the New York Yankees. Chapman was once known for consistently throwing 100 mph fastballs past woebegone hitters. Chapman had spent time on the injured list with Achilles tendinitis in May, then lost the closer job to Clay Holmes.
