Duffy to wear number 30

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Heading into the 2021 season, many players will be wearing different jersey numbers, and this includes Danny Duffy. Duffy announced on the first day of camp that he has changed his jersey number to the number 30 to remember former Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura. According to KSNT News, Duffy has purchased various Ventura memorabilia off of eBay. This isn’t the only thing Duffy has done since...

Should the Royals extend Duffy?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have a few players that are eligible for contract extensions in 2021, including Danny Duffy and Brad Keller. However, Keller has two years of arbitration remaining on his contract after the 2021 season. With that in mind, the Royals need to consider giving Danny Duffy a contract extension. This would be the second contract extension for Duffy in his career. While I believe Duffy needs a contract...

Benintendi will fit perfectly at the K

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals had been searching for an outfielder this offseason, and I didn’t think the outfield market was in the Royals favor; but, they found a way by signing Michael Taylor to a cheap one-year deal. After Taylor signed, the Royals weren’t done adding pieces to their outfield. On February 10, the Royals were part of a trade that included the Red Sox and the Mets. The Royals acquired Andrew...

Cishek Could be the Key for KC

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com On January 14, Corey Kluber held a workout session for teams. The Royals were one of the teams in attendance. During Kluber’s workout session, pitchers Anthony Swarzak and Steve Cishek also attended. The Royals are still looking to add pitching this offseason, and I think Cishek could fill a bullpen role for them. The 34-year old pitched for the White Sox in 2020. During his time with Chicago, he...

Could Karns Return to Kauffman?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have been busy this offseason, and I don’t believe they are done signing players just yet. I think we could see more minor league signings pop up before the beginning of spring training like the Ervin Santana deal. Should the Royals sign another old friend? I think they should. I could see the Royals bring in more pitching for a bullpen spot or minor league depth. Does the name Nathan Karns ring...

Santana Returns to KC

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals recently signed pitcher Ervin Santana to a minor league deal. Santana played for the Royals in 2013. During his first stint with the Royals, he posted a 3.24 ERA. After his time in Kansas City, he played for the Braves, Twins, and most recently, the White Sox. Beginning in 2018, he struggled badly with a 8.03 ERA with the Twins. His stats got worse in 2019. During his time with the White Sox, he...

Could Ivan Nova be a Target for KC?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Although the Royals rotation is most likely set for the season, the Royals are still interested in bringing in a starting pitcher. Lately, the Royals have been spending more on free agents than they have the past few seasons. I believe Ivan Nova would be a perfect Royals target on a cheap contract. During the 2020 season, Nova struggled with a 8.53 ERA but only pitched in 19 innings. I believe if the season...

Stretch Blewett out

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are always looking for reliable bullpen arms that can eat up some innings throughout the season. I believe Scott Blewett could be one of those guys. In 2019, Blewett started five games for Northwest Arkansas and 16 for the Omaha Storm Chasers. This means the Royals can use him in many situations throughout the season, either as a starter or a long reliever. I believe teams can never have too many long...
