Royals found a gem in Brentz

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In 2019, the Royals signed Jake Brentz to a minor league deal. This signing seemed like it would be like any other minor in signing, but not for Brentz.  Tweet Brentz showed up to spring training with the hopes of making the opening day roster, but I don’t think many Royals fans expected him to make the team. Now early in the 2021 season, Brentz is turning heads. Although he has only pitched in a few games...

Don’t get rookie player uniforms

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As Royals fans, we are excited to see young players in 2021 such as Kyle Isbel, Brady Singer, Kris Bubic, Bobby Witt Jr and others. We all know this is what the Royals future looks like long term. I bet many fans are thinking about getting their favorite player’s jersey. I would recommend you wait at least a year to get certain players jerseys. It seems to me that after a player finishes their first season in...

Royals break the bank with Salvy

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com While Salvador Perez is a fan favorite and many are excited to see him sign a long term contract extension with the Royals, I believe there are some reasons to worry about this contract. Perez’s contract is the largest contract in team history surpassing Royals great Alex Gordon’s four-year $72 million contract. The Royals handed Perez a four-year contract extension worth $82 million. While I believe...

Mondesi extension could hurt Royals long term

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have recently signed third baseman Hunter Dozier to a four-year contract extension. I believe the Dozier signing is the start of many potential extensions on the horizon including shortstop Adalberto Mondesi.  The Royals have two years of arbitration control on Mondesi after the 2021 season. This means the Royals don’t have to get an extension done with Mondesi immediately, but I know they would...

Lopez’s role with the Royals up in the air

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Heading into spring training, the Royals had many unknowns at many different positions including bullpen, first base, outfield, starting rotation and second base. The Royals answered many of these questions through free agency by signing first baseman Carlos Santana, outfielder Michael A Taylor, pitcher Mike Minor, and pitcher Brad Brach. While Brach isn’t on the active roster right now, I believe at some...

Royals are built on speed

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals this past offseason and early into spring training have been busy adding free agents, but not just any free agents. The Royals have added multiple free agents that have speed, just like the Chiefs, but probably not to that exact extent. Those two players are Michael A Taylor and Jarrod Dyson signed to one-year deals. Taylor and Dyson will join a team that has speed already in the lineup in Whit...

Dozier staying for the long haul in KC

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have started signing their core players to long term deals including Whit Merrifield. The next player on their list was Hunter Dozier. On Friday night, the Royals and Dozier began discussing a contract extension. Dozier has proven he can smash the ball out of the ballpark. The Royals have a few others that can hit for power as well in Jorge Soler and Salvador Perez. Unlike Soler and Perez, Dozier can...

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...
