Kendall is 38 years old. He hasn't played since 2010, because of a serious shoulder injury. The last time he did play, he didn't play well. Didn't play well at all: In his last three seasons -- two with the Brewers, one with the Royals -- Kendall posted a 635 OPS.
Did I mention that he's 38, and hasn't played since 2010? Oh, right.
The Royals have a great young catcher in the majors, and an okay backup. They've got decent catchers in Class AAA, too. Which might be why Kendall's beginning his comeback with the double-A Northwest Arkansas Naturals.
The good news for Royals fans is that Kendall's not taking at-bats away from a hot catching prospect; the Royals don't have any hot catching prospects. The good news for Kendall is that playing in the Texas League beats selling Lady Kenmores. Selling Lady Kenmores sucks.
