Matheny had a winning record every year as the Cardinals manager, finishing with a 591-474 mark for a .555 winning percentage.

“This is a great opportunity to have Mike become a member of our organization,” Royals general manager Dayton Moore said in a statement. “It’s always been our policy to hire the best baseball people we can and this is a perfect example of that.”
