Royals' first winter signing: Jairo Cuevas

In case everyone missed it, as I'm sure nearly everyone did, the Royals claimed Jairo Cuevas off of waivers from the (guess who) Atlanta Braves this week.  He has spent 5 years bouncing between Rookie ball and AA, all in the Atlanta system.  He is a 24 year-old right-handed starting pitcher.  In 81 games (72 starts), he has thrown 377 1/3 innings, allowing only 329 hits.  He has struck out 357 and walked 180 (not quite a 2:1 K:BB.)  He posts a 4.05 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  He only has given up 23 homers in those 377+ innings.

Unfortunately, his numbers have gotten progressively worse on his way up the ladder through the minors.
