Is Grant Gavin an under the radar prospect?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After being drafted out of Central Missouri by the Royals in the 29th round, Grant Gavin posted an ERA below 3.00 in Burlington. He continued his success in Lexington with a 1.38 ERA. In 2018, Gavin tripped up slightly in Wilmington with a 3.19 ERA. That’s still not that bad if you ask me. Gavin was promoted to Double-A Northwest Arkansas that same season. After being promoted to the Naturals in 2018, he...

Should the Royals trade Danny Duffy?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Danny Duffy has been with the Royals organization since 2007. So as KC looks to the future, should the Royals trade Duffy in 2020 or 2021? I could see the Royals trading Duffy in 2021 since the 2020 season is going to be shortened due to COVID-19. But I could be wrong. If the Royals do trade Danny Duffy, I would expect KC to get a decent amount of prospects in return. I know Danny Duffy is good, but remember...

What was Beltrán’s time like with the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   Back in 1995, the Royals drafted Carlos Beltrán out of high school. Three years later, Beltrán made his major league debut in September of 1998 against the Oakland A’s. The next season was his first full season in the Majors. During his rookie season with the Royals in 1999, Beltrán batted .293 with 22 home runs and 108 RBIs. He also swiped 27 stolen bases. That’s not bad if you ask me. Beltrán...

Most Likely Reason Dayton Moore Brought Maikel Franco to KC

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Last December, the Royals signed Maikel Franco to a one-year deal worth $2.95 million guaranteed with the hopes that he would become KC’s everyday third baseman in 2020. After the 2019 season, the Royals moved Hunter Dozier to the outfield. For some Royals fans, this was a somewhat surprising move along with the signing of Franco. I know it surprised me. At the same time, this is the type of deal the Royals are...

What if the Royals hadn’t traded Scott Alexander?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Back in 2010, the Royals selected Scott Alexander out of Sonoma State University in the 6th round of the 2010 draft. Alexander had turned down an opportunity to sign with the Cincinnati Reds back in 2007. After the Royals called up Alexander to the majors in 2015, he posted a 4.50 era in six innings over 4 games pitched. Three years later, Alexander was part of the three-team trade between the Royals, Dodgers...

When will Salvy Become the Everyday 1B?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Although Salvador Perez is a 6-time all-star behind the dish, the Royals are hoping to let Perez play first base from time to time in 2020. Its only a matter of time before Perez plays first base on a daily basis. At 6’3″ 245 pounds Perez’s catching days are numbered, but not his career. With Perez being 6’3″ I think first base will fit him perfectly. Remember Salvador Perez does...

Should the Royals take a chance on Jackson Stephens?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com     As we all know the Royals are going through a rebuild. For small market teams like the Royals, they must build through their minor league systems. I think I found a pitcher the Royals should consider taking a look at—Jackson Stephens. After a somewhat rough 2019 season, the Reds outrighted Stephens to Triple-A Louisville. After rejecting the outright to Triple-A, Stephens elected free agency. Being only...

Reasoning Behind the Mike Matheny Hiring

Reasoning Behind the Mike Matheny Hiring

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Back in 2019, the Royals hired Mike Matheny as Ned Yost’s special advisor. Shortly after the 2019 season ended, Ned Yost announced his retirement. When the Royals named Mike Matheny as the manager some fans were not impressed with Dayton Moore’s decision. But for me it makes plenty of sense. If you know how Moore runs his team, he signs and hires people with good character. In a conversation I had with Royals...
