Could Rafael Dolis fill a need for the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have been quiet this offseason. Many fans are frustrated with the Royals for not being active in the free agent market. It’s important to remember that the Royals usually sign players that are in the middle of the market. For example, in 2019 the team went out and signed relievers Jake Diekman and Brad Boxberger. The Boxberger signing obviously didn’t work out for the Royals, but I think...

Could Mychal Givens be a fit for KC?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Kansas City has been searching for bullpen arms all offseason but haven’t taken any action as of yet. I believe Mychal Givens could be a perfect fit for the Royals, but they might want to hurry and sign him with multiple teams rumored to be interested in him. Before we get into Givens’ stats, let’s not forget to mention that he takes pride in leadership role according to Charlie Goldsmith of...

Royals Target: Brooks Raley

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com According to Royals beat writer Anne Rogers, the Royals will target bullpen upgrades this offseason. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

During the 2021 season, Raley struckout 35 lefties and 30 righties equaling his 65 punch...

Royals Bullpen Target: Daniel Hudson

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Kansas City’s bullpen was a concern heading into the 2021 season; and as expected, it was. The Royals are looking to be competitive and possibly make the playoffs in 2022. KC has multiple prospects looking to make their major league debut next season, including some relievers on the team. It will be fun to watch their growth, but the organization doesn’t have enough top relievers in the farm, which...

Royals found a gem in Tapia

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The bullpen has been a challenge for the Royals this season, but they do have a few good arms. The Royals acquired Domingo Tapia from the Mariners after he was designated for assignment on May 17. Tapia only appeared in two games for the Mariners this season. When the Royals acquired Tapia, I was a bit surprised they made this deal with the team looking to get younger; but the 30-year old has really shined in...

Escobar to the Nationals

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com On May 4, the Royals signed former big league shortstop Alcides Escobar to a minor league deal to provide infield depth for the club. I loved this move by Kansas City, although I knew it would only be for minor league depth. During his time in Omaha, Escobar batted .274 with five home runs and 16 RBIs. I believe his stats would have been better if the Royals had the opportunity to sign him early in the season,...
