The Kansas City Royals agreed to terms with left-hander Bruce Chen on a one-year deal Thursday.

Kansas City had yet to announce the contract, which includes a mutual option for 2015.

The 36-year-old has spent the past five seasons in Kansas City and is coming off perhaps the finest year of his 15-year career, going 9-4 with a 3.27 ERA while making 15 starts and 19 appearances out of the bullpen.

Chen will likely assume a similar role this season, providing a cushion in the event of an injury or if young starters such as Yordano Ventura aren't ready out of spring training.
