Jose Lima rejoined the Kansas City Royals (news) when he agreed to a one-year contract Saturday, hoping to provide stability and leadership to a rotation that was awful last season.
Lima, who pitched for the Royals in 2003, spent this year with Los Angeles, going 13-5 with a 4.07 ERA. He walked 34 and struck out 93 in 170 1-3 innings, then threw a shutout in the NL playoffs against St. Louis.
In 12 major league seasons, the right-hander is 84-82 with a 5.00 ERA. His best stretch came in 1998 and '99, when he went 16-8 and 21-10, respectively, for the Houston Astros.
Too bad about the herpes though.
IT'S LIMA TIME. BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!
