KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A familiar face will return to the Kansas City Royals roster.

On Tuesday, the team announced they signed outfielder Terrance Gore to a one-year deal. This news comes a week after the Royals signed former Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton.

In order to get Gore, the Royals designated Rosell Herrera for assignment.

Gore spent eight years with the Royals organization. In four season with Kansas City, Gore appeared in 49 games, stealing 21 bases.

The 27-year-old was traded to the Cubs in August. He was in 14 games -- getting his first big-league hit with six stolen bases.

For stolen bases attempts in the regular season, Gore is 27-for-31, 5-for-6 in steals in the postseason. Four of the postseason steals were with the Royals in 2014-15.
