KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration.

The 29-year-old hit .278 with three doubles and a home run in five games for the Royals last year and made $600,000. He batted .233 with 17 homers and 44 RBIs in 78 games for Triple-A Omaha.

Kansas City claimed Hayes off waivers from the Miami Marlins in November 2012.

His agreement was announced Friday. He can make an additional $20,000 in performance bonuses.
