9

KANSAS CITY -- Right-hander Jorge Campillo, a World Baseball Classic teammate of Kansas City closer Joakim Soria, has signed a Minor League contract for 2010 with the Royals. Campillo, who was with Soria on Mexico's team last spring, missed most of the 2009 season because of right shoulder tendinitis. He pitched in five games for Atlanta with a 1-0 record and 4.15 ERA. In 2008, however, Campillo pitched in 39 games, including 25 starts, for the Braves. He was 8-7 with a 3.91 ERA in what was considered his rookie season, although he'd pitched briefly in the three previous seasons for the Seattle Mariners. Campillo, 31 and born in Tijuana, began his pro career with eight seasons with the Mexico City Tigers. His best year was 2003, when he was 12-5 in 21 starts and had a 2.79 ERA. He was acquired by the Mariners in 2005 and later that year underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. In 2007, while pitching for Tacoma, he led the Pacific Coast League with a 3.07 ERA while going 9-6 as a starter.
