The Kansas City Royals have officially signed Mike Moustakas to a one-year deal, the team announced Saturday. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Moustakas, 29, has played his entire seven-year career with the Royals.

Moose's banner season earned him The Sporting News' American League Comeback Player of the Year honors. He also drove in 85 runs in what was by far the most productive season of his career. He would make $15 million that season, according to multiple reports. Moose hit 10 first-round home runs in the Home Run Derby in Miami, becoming the third Royal to participate in the event, joining Bo Jackson (1989) and Danny Tartabull (1991).

Kansas City Royals' Mike Moustakas rounds the bases after hitting a solo home run against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of a baseball game Friday, Aug. 11, 2017, in Chicago. More than half of those (67) have come since the 2015 All-Star break, good for a 15.13 at-bat-to-home-run ratio, which ranks third among active American League left-handed batters during that stretch.
