Mondesi should transition to second base

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals believe that Adalberto Mondesi could become a super star in the big leagues at shortstop, but I don’t believe that has worked out for the Royals thus far. During Mondesi’s time in the big leagues he has been unable to stay healthy for long periods of time. I believe a position change could help him in many ways. Currently, Whit Merrifield plays second base for Kansas City; however, they...

Bullpen Target: Brett de Geus

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals bullpen hasn’t been bad, but it certainly hasn’t been great this season. The Royals this past offseason brought back Greg Holland on a one year deal worth $2.75 million. I don’t believe it has worked out in the Royals favor. However, Holland isn’t my biggest concern in the pen. The biggest issue in the bullpen for the Royals in my opinion is Wade Davis. The Royals brought Wade...

Butler might need to join the rotation

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Heading into the 2021 season, the Royals improved their starting rotation by signing Mike Minor to a two-year deal to join Danny Duffy, Brad Keller and Brady Singer. Even with the addition of Minor, the Royals still need help in the starting rotation. The Royals have tried Jackson Kowar, Kris Bubic and Jakob Junis in the starting rotation so far this season, and none of them have worked out. However, Kowar and...

Bolanos could be a bright spot for Royals bullpen

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals acquired Ronald Bolanos from the Padres in 2020 along with outfielder Franchy Cordero for reliever Tim Hill. The Royals shipped Cordero to the Red Sox in the package that brought outfielder Andrew Benintendi to Kansas City. The Royals tried Bolanos in the starting rotation in 2020; but during his two starts, he struggled mightily with a 12.27 ERA. Even though Bolanos struggled as a starter, the Royals...

Mondesi’s injury issues continue

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com When the Royals signed Adalberto Mondesi in 2011, they had high hopes for him in the major leagues. While Mondesi is still young and is still viewed as a long-term piece for the Royals, I believe his injury history should be a big concern for the Royals’ front office and fans. Mondesi has already been on the injured list once this season, but that doesn’t include the times he has been pulled from games...

Singer could’ve been a Blue Jay

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Before becoming a top pitching prospect for the Royals, Brady Singer had the opportunity to sign with Toronto out of high school in 2015. Fortunately for the Royals, Singer decided to decline the Blue Jays offer and attend the University of Florida and play for the Gators. This worked out in the Royals favor to allow them to draft great pitchers like Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar in the same draft. I...

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...
