What is Brett Phillips’ role in 2020?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After acquiring Jorge Lopez and Brett Phillips from the Brewers in 2018, Phillips hasn’t been able to find his footing in the majors. But remember, he’s still only 26-years old. The Royals have a pretty crowded outfield with Alex Gordon, Bubba Starling, Whit Merrifield and now Hunter Dozier. So, where does Brett Phillips fit in? I honestly could see him take the left field job in the near future....

Gutiérrez needs more playing time to Develop

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In 2019, the Royals signed utility player Chris Owings to a one-year deal worth $3 million. Thankfully, the Royals didn’t give him anymore than that. The Royals were hoping Owings would be able to play multiple positions when they signed him. As we expected the Royals used him in many different positions. During his time with the Royals, Owings struggled mightily. Despite his struggles offensively, the...

Tim Hill should sit out 2020

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Even though all players and coaches are at risk of getting the coronavirus, some players are at higher risks than others. For the Royals, it’s Tim Hill. Hill suffers from Lynch syndrome and is a cancer survivor, colon cancer to be exact. If you don’t know what Lynch syndrome is, go to https://www.cancer.net/cancer-types/lynch-syndrome for more information. Even though the Royals are going to keep a...

Royals to play in front of no fans

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As we all know, the Royals and all other MLB teams won’t be playing in front of a crowd this year. This is obviously to slow down the spread of COVID-19. It’s already risky playing baseball with COVID-19 going around anyway. Yes, it’s risky for the players, but I believe it’s even more of a risk for the coaching staffs and the umpires. Speaking of the spread of COVID-19, as you may know a...

Bad long-term infielder signing by Royals hurt Merrifield’s prime

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After his first stint with the Tigers, Omar Infante signed a 4-year deal with the Royals in 2013. It seemed like a good signing at the time. Let’s just say the $30.25 million didn’t pan out. As many Royals fans remember, Omar Infante had a history of injuries before signing with the Royals. On top of his injury history, he struggled at the plate. His first year with the Royals didn’t make the...

The Royals need to Extend Brad Keller

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After being acquired from the Reds in 2017, Keller burst onto the scene for the Royals. During his two seasons with the Royals he has been pretty dominant with a 3.08 ERA in 2018 and a 4.19 ERA in 2019. Most people would probably agree with me that Keller needs to be extended, but probably not on the contract length or the amount of money I think the Royals should offer him. I believe they should offer Keller a...

Interview with relief prospect Daniel Tillo

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com I recently had the privilege of interviewing Royals #19 prospect, Daniel Tillo. Last season Tillo split time between A+ and AA and also flashed some great fastball velocity in outings with team USA. Tillo finished the season with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.309 WHIP over a 130.2 IP. Tillo made the change from a starter to a reliever. Tillo would have likely made his debut sometime in 2020. The 24-year-old relief prospect...

Should the Royals move Mondesi to the outfield?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com I know I am probably off my hinges but what if the Royals moved Adalberto Mondesi to the outfield?  Tweet I think it’s something to think about. As we all know, Mondesi has great speed. He doesn’t have the strongest arm in the league either though. But his speed could help him in the outfield. With a lot of the outfielders in the Royals organization, I don’t believe most of them are ready for...
