The Kansas City Royals announced the signing of right-hander Jordan Lyles to a two-year contract Wednesday.

Financial terms of the deal with the 32-year-old free agent were not disclosed.

Previous reports put the value of the contract at $17 million.

Lyles was 12-11 with a 4.42 ERA in 32 starts for the Baltimore Orioles in 2022, fanning 144 batters in 179 innings.

He owns a 66-90 career record with a 5.10 ERA in 321 games (214 starts) over 12 seasons with seven different teams.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Royals designated infielder Ryan O’Hearn for assignment.
