KC Royals enhance pitching depth with four additions

In December the Royals added four pitchers from outside their organization to the 40-man big league roster.  They are right-handers Wily Peralta, Scott Barlow, Brad Keller and Burch Smith.

Peralta is the only recognizable name of the group.  Only a diehard fan would know the others.
