The door finally opens for Gutierrez

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com On December 2, the Royals non-tendered third baseman Maikel Franco making him a free agent. This didn’t surprise me too much, but it was still a difficult decision for the Royals. General Manager Dayton Moore told Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com “It was a difficult decision.” Moore continued, ” He really did a great job for us; but going forward we felt we had internal options at third base,...

Hector Rondon could be a surprising Royals target

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have been shopping for bullpen arms all off-season. I believe Hector Rondon could be a pitcher the Royals could target. I know what most of you are probably thinking, how could he be a Royals target? Its really quite simple—the free agent market is moving very slow this off-season. As baseball fans, it sucks to watch the market move this slow; but a slow market could work out in the Royals favor. With...

A potential Jorge Soler contract extension

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have multiple players that are eligible for contract extensions including Jorge Soler. I’m guessing many Royals fans would love to see Soler sign a long-term contract. Believe me, I would too, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do. After the 2021 season, Soler is a free agent. I believe the Royals could sign him to a multi-year contract. In fact, I think the Royals should give...

Could Brett Anderson be a fit for the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The free agent market will be slow this year, but a slow market might work out in the Royals favor. The Royals are looking for a cost efficient starter, and there are many out there. I believe Brett Anderson could be a good fit for the boys in blue in 2021. Last season, Anderson went 4-4 with the Brewers. He owned a 4.21 ERA in 10 games in 47 innings pitched. Anderson will be heading into his age 33 season. I...

Could Cam Bedrosian fit in the Royals’ plans?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are looking for pitchers with multiple arbitration years remaining on their contacts. The Royals are also looking to get younger in the near future. In 2021, however,  I believe their bullpen will be a mix of young and veteran arms; but, I believe Cam Bedrosian is an exception. Bedrosian is heading into his final year of arbitration eligibility. I believe the Royals will consider giving him a look...
