Royals’ GM Dayton Moore says no regrets about Ervin Santana signing with Braves

Ervin Santana reportedly agreed to a deal worth $14.1 million with the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday. That is identical to the qualifying offer the Royals gave in November. Santana rejected it, and sought a nine-figure, multi-year deal. His efforts were unsuccessful. Meanwhile, the Royals believe Jason Vargas and younger pitchers can offset some of Santana’s performance in 2013 (he threw 211 innings with a 3.24 ERA).
