This Day In Royals Transaction History
In both 1987 and 2007 the Royals made moves on February 6th, signing pitchers Bob Stoddard and Jason Standridge. Neither would be known for much with the Royals, as each played just one year and both ended their major league careers with the Royals.
A six year major league veteran at the time, Stoddard signed with the Royals after having been released by the San Diego Padres. He’d appear in 17 games with the Royals (two starts), and finish ’87 with a 4.28 ERA.
Standridge, was a free-agent signee after having been released by the New York Mets in January of 2007. The former first-round pick is most remembered for never living up to expectations with the Tampa Bay
Devil Rays. His Royals career lasted all of four games and 7.2 innings before being released at the end of May.
Stanridge would bounce around the minor leagues through the 2009 season and was last seen playing for the Hanshin (Japan) Tigers in 2012. One of his teammates on the Tigers squad last year was Craig Brazell, who enjoyed a cup of coffee with the Royals in 2007 as well. Brazell hit 39 home runs and had 91 RBI while batting .315 for AA Wichita and AAA Omaha that season.
