Kansas City Royals Add Xavier Nady

| by

The Royals continued their “old” ways last week by signing veteran journeyman Xavier Nady to a minor league contract.

Nady, now 34, has a career triple-slash of .270/.324/.432 across his 11 seasons at the big league level. Before joining Kansas City, Nady had played for eight different organizations: San Diego, both of the teams in New York, Pittsburgh, Chicago Cubs, Arizona, Washington, and San Francisco.

The X-Man has accumulated more than 150 games of experience at three different positions (RF: 446, 1B: 186, LF: 156).

In 59 games this season (40 with Washington; 19 with San Francisco), he hit only .184/.253/.316 with 7 doubles, 4 homeruns, and 13 RBI.

Much like current right fielder Jeff Francoeur, Nady has been exceptional against left-handed pitcher. For his career, Xavier has a .284/.352/.441 line in 905 official ABs against southpaws.
