Trading Merrifield should be Royals’ top priority

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Photo by Ed Zurga/Getty Images For the past two seasons, Kansas City Royals second baseman Whit Merrifield has been the center of nearly all trade rumors involving the club. The fanbase seems hellbent on keeping him, and for good reason; Merrifield led Major League Baseball the past two seasons in hits, was the stolen base champion in 2018, and put together a franchise-record 31-game hitting streak en route to...

Is 2020 A Make Or Break Season For Adalberto Mondesi?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Coming up, Mondesi was highly regarded as one of the best prospects in baseball. At just 20 years old, he got the nod to make his MLB debut in the 2015 World Series. In 2016, he underperformed hitting just .185 with a .231 OBP in 47 games. 2017 was even worse as he batted just .170 with a .214 OBP in 25 games.

Inside the Numbers: Royals All-Star candidates

Such a season would lead one to think that the team may not have a legit...
