The Kansas City Star says that Kevin Appier "appears certain to sign" with the Royals, the Associated Press goes even further, saying that Appier will sign today and start at Tampa Bay this weekend, and the L.A. Times sources Appier's Agent, Jeff Borris, as saying that Ape will start for the Royals on Friday night.

The Royals will be paying less than $100,000 for Appier - presumably the prorated Major League minimum.
