The Kansas City Royals agreed to terms on a one-year contract Saturday with pitcher Bruce Chen. The deal also includes a mutual option for 2015.

The itinerant Chen seems to have found a home with the Royals, for whom he has played since 2009. Last season, he made 34 appearances (15 starts), compiling a 9-4 record and a 3.27 earned run average.

Chen has a career mark of 80-76 with a 4.49 ERA in 385 games -- 218 as a starter -- over 15 seasons with the Braves, Phillies, Mets, Expos, Reds, Astros, Red Sox, Orioles, Rangers and Royals.

To clear room for Chen on the 40-man roster, the Royals designated infielder Emilio Bonifacio for assignment.
