Kansas City, MO (SportsNetwork. Nike Air Max Thea Australia Cheap .com) - The Kansas City Royals officially announced Tuesday that the club has agreed to terms with first baseman/designated hitter Kendrys Morales on a two-year contract with a mutual option for the 2017 season. The contract is reportedly worth $17 million. Morales will fill the void left by Billy Butler, who signed a three-year, $30 million free-agent contract with the Oakland Athletics. Morales split last season with the Minnesota Twins and Seattle Mariners, who acquired him right before the non-waiver trade deadline. However, he only hit .218 in 98 combined games with eight home runs and 42 RBI. The 31-year-old switch-hitter had declined a qualifying offer from Seattle last offseason, but found no takers in free agency, as no team was willing to surrender a draft pick to sign him. Morales did not sign with the Twins until June 8 when compensation was no longer a factor. Morales broke into the majors with the Angels in 2006 and spent the next six years with the club. He is a career .271 hitter with 110 homers and 387 RBI in 718 games. Following a career-best season in 2009, in which he recorded 43 doubles, 34 home runs and 108 RBI, Morales was limited to 51 games in 2010 and missed the entire 2011 season because of a severe leg injury. He suffered a fractured lower left leg celebrating a walk-off grand slam on May 29, 2010 against Seattle. To make room for Morales on the 40-man roster, the Royals designated outfielder Moises Sierra for assignment. Nike Air Max 90 Shoes Cheap .

General manager Tim Bezbatchenko has stated that Vanney will be the head coach moving forward and that the move does not come with an "interim" tag. Gone with Nelsen is the majority of the teams assistant coaches, including Fran OLeary, Jim Brennan, Duncan Oughton, goalkeeper coach Stewart Kerr, and strength and conditioning coach Adrian Lamb. Reports have also surfaced that the team may be on the verge of moving star striker Jermain Defoe back to the Barclays Premier League, possibly to Nelsens old club: Queens Park Rangers. Bezbatchenko also commented on those rumours, noting that a player of Defoes stature would always be in demand to top-flight clubs. "We have received an offer [for Defoe] and we have discussed it internally," Bezbatchenko said. "We are in talks. We are speaking with him, but no decision has been made." Defoe - who has missed four of the clubs last five games - is currently not with the club and is receiving treatment for his injured groin. "Jermain has over delivered on my expectations," Bezbatchenko said. "We are in regular contact with QPR & we will figure out whats best for him." TSN soccer analyst Kristian Jack has reported that Defoe is currently in England. He has scored a club-leading 11 goals in only 16 games in 2014. That total puts him in a tie for fifth in the Major League Soccer scorers table. As to the timing of the move, Bezbatchenko said it had everything to do with the remaining games on the calendar and not with recent critical comments made by Nelsen. "We have 10 games remaining, so thats 30 points that are out there had we waited any longer," Bezbatchenko said at the news conference. The team has two games scheduled over the course of the next week: a home-and-away set with the Philadelphia Union, who sit just three points back of TFC in the Eastern Conference standings. Nelsen was critical of Bezbatchenko following his teams 3-0 loss to the New England Revolution on Saturday. Bezbatchenko publiclyy stressed the importance of the game prior to kick-off, a move that irked Nelsen. Air Max Thea Beige. In post-game comments Nelsen - himself a former New Zealand international - went off on his GM. "Ive won this league, played in it for four years, been in the (English) Premier League for 10 years, played in a World Cup, Olympics. Ive played in some pretty hot pressure games," he said. "One thing that I do know is this was not one of them." "It affected the guys," he said of the comments. "What we do at Toronto FC is we keep it in-house - everything we do, we keep inside the four walls. And the players, coaching staff, everything, stays within the four walls." Vanney was hired in December, 2013 after serving as part of the Los Angeles Galaxys Academy staff. “Greg is a visionary when it comes to player development. He shares our Clubs passion for innovation and is an educator of both players and coaches," Bezbatchenko said upon hiring Vanney in December. "We are pleased to welcome him to Toronto FC,” said Toronto FC General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. Vanney is looking for a homegrown solution to the clubs long-term success. "I believe in the Canadian player," he said Sunday. "I believe they are integral to our team." The 36-year-old Nelsen was named head coach in January of 2013 despite still being an active player for the English Premier Leagues Queens Park Rangers. He would leave QPR three weeks later to take up his duties with Toronto FC. He guided Toronto FC to one of their worst seasons on record last season, the team finishing with a 6-17-11 record. The team has turned things around in 2014, though, in large part to the additions of high-profile internationals Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley. Toronto FC currently sits tied for fourth in the Eastern Conference with 33 points through 24 games (9-9-6), on-pace for their first ever MLS Cup Playoffs berth. Toronto FC has had eight different head coaches over its seven-plus seasons in Major League Soccer. Nelsens 58 games as coach are the second-most in club history behind Aron Winters 64 between 2011 and 2012.
