This John Thomson:
Thomson is a "young" 34 years of age and had his best year in 2004 when he was a 14 game winner with the Atlanta Braves under the eyes of a young Dayton Moore. He has combined for just 35 starts the last two seasons due to finger and should injuries. He was released by the Blue Jays after not throwing a pitch for them this season.
From the Royals press release:
The Royals today signed right-handed pitcher John Thomson to a one-year Major League contract. Thomson will join the team tonight in Milwaukee , at which time a determination will be made as to when he will appear for the Royals. In a corresponding move, the Royals place pitcher Scott Elarton on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to June 20) with a right foot sprain.
