How did Royals players fare in winter baseball?

Freddy Fermin is your Venezuelan League MVP! The Royals’ season ended months ago, but some players have been playing ball all winter in leagues abroad. Winter leagues in the Caribbean and Australia provide an opportunity for more playing time for younger players, a chance to play in front of hometown fans for others, or just a fun experience playing ball in front of exuberant crowds. The Royals had several players participating in winter ball, from minor leaguers looking to get a shot to All-Star catcher Salvador Perez. Salvy suited up Aguilas del Zulia in his native Venezuela and played just ..read more

Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Are you celebrating Australia Day? David Lesky bids farewell to Adalberto Mondesi: Yes, there’s a world where he plays like an MVP and you can get a very nice return for him, but in this age of sports betting everywhere, that would be like +10000. Now, personally I wouldn’t have traded for a 30-year old lefty reliever who missed all of 2022 with a back injury. I actually like Taylor quite a bit, but my preference would have been a lower-level prospect who the Royals offensive development team could probably work some magic with, but I think the actual value of ..read more

Royals trades clear the path for the kids to play

Photo by Ed Zurga/Getty Images This lineup is gonna be young. The Royals made a pair of trades this week, sending outfielder Michael A. Taylor to the Twins and infielder Adalberto Mondesi to the Red Sox. In return for trading away two of the oldest position players left on the roster, the Royals received a lefty that throws hard but has trouble with walks, another lefty that throws hard but has trouble with walks, then they mixed it up with a righty that throws really hard but has trouble with walks, and I think they also got a free coupon to Subway. Anyway, the return doesn’t really matter mu ..read more

When it rains (news), it pours Ben Clemens of FanGraphs likes the Michael A. Taylor trade for both teams: That’s a nice haul for a Royals team that wasn’t realistically contending this year, and it probably doesn’t hurt that their assistant pitching coach, Zach Bove, came over from the Twins this offseason, where he’d been the assistant minor league pitching coordinator (title inflation in baseball is so hot right now). Teams in contending windows either need to have relievers like Sisk and Cruz in their system or trade for them as the need arises. I don’t think either of them has a ton of v ..read more

Photo by Ron Schwane/Getty Images Could the Chicago kid return home? The Chicago White Sox have “expressed interest” in Royals infielder Nicky Lopez, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Rosenthal tweets that the Royals are “not eager” to move Lopez, viewing him as important depth and a hedge at second base in case Michael Massey is not ready for the big leagues to begin the season. Jeff Passan of ESPN also reported the Royals have spoken with teams about Lopez and Hunter Dozier. Lopez enjoyed his best offensive season in 2021, but regressed badly last season, hitting .227/.281/.273 in ..read more

Former Royals outfielder Carlos Beltrán received 46.5 percent of the vote for the Hall of Fame, short of the 75 percent threshold on his first ballot.
