Olivo Signs With Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Free agent catcher Miguel Olivo
has inked a one-year deal with Kansas City.

The 29-year-old was Florida's primary catcher the past two
seasons. He wasn't tendered a contract by the Marlins after batting
.237 this year.

The Royals and Olivo each hold options for the 2009 season.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Olivo has thrown out 31.2 percent of attempted base stealer's the
past two seasons. That's fourth-best in the National League.

He also has played for the Chicago White Sox, Seattle and San
Diego, hitting .239 in his career with 61 home runs and 224 RBI in
556 games.
