JONESBORO, Ark., (ASU) – Arkansas State senior catcher Tyler Smith has been signed to a free agent contract by the Kansas City Royals, Friday.
Smith is the second Red Wolves player picked up by the Royals this offseason, as fellow ASU senior Andy Ferguson was taken by the Royals with the 546th overall pick in the MLB draft.
"What a great opportunity for Tyler to continue his baseball career professionally," said ASU head coach Tommy Raffo. "We think he will be a great fit for the Royals organization. He will do a great job behind the plate for them and continue to improve his skill level."
