Royals Add Outfielder

The Royals added some outfield depth before the Major League Baseball trade deadline.  They acquired 29-year-old outfielder Justin Maxwell from the Astros for minor league pitcher Kyle Smith.  Injuries have limited Maxwell to 40 games this season, but he slugged 18 home runs in 315 at-bats for the Astros in 2012.
