The Kansas City Royals have signed free-agent pitcher and former Colorado Rockies player Kip Wells.

The 31-year-old Wells began the season as the Rockies' opening day starter, but was eventually demoted to the bullpen.

The Rockies designated Wells for assignment last week.

The right-handed pitcher is 1-2 with a 5.27 ERA in 15 appearances. He's 1-1 with a 3.32 ERA coming out of the bullpen, which is where the Royals expect to use him.

Wells is a 10-year veteran. Kansas City is his sixth team.
