Jeff Francis signs with Royals

The Mets can officially  forget about Jeff Francis for their starting rotation. The lefthander agreed on a one-year, $2 million contract with the Kansas City Royals.

The Mets were not willing to go that high anyway.  The team gave Chris Capuano $1.5 million and do not want to exceed that for another potential starter.

Francis fills  the spot vacated by Zack Greinke, who was traded to the Brewers.

Francis was 4-6 with a 5.00  ERA in 104.3 innings last season with Colorado.
