Santana Returns to KC

Could Ivan Nova be a Target for KC?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Although the Royals rotation is most likely set for the season, the Royals are still interested in bringing in a starting pitcher. Lately, the Royals have been spending more on free agents than they have the past few seasons. I believe Ivan Nova would be a perfect Royals target on a cheap contract. During the 2020 season, Nova struggled with a 8.53 ERA but only pitched in 19 innings. I believe if the season...

Stretch Blewett out

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are always looking for reliable bullpen arms that can eat up some innings throughout the season. I believe Scott Blewett could be one of those guys. In 2019, Blewett started five games for Northwest Arkansas and 16 for the Omaha Storm Chasers. This means the Royals can use him in many situations throughout the season, either as a starter or a long reliever. I believe teams can never have too many long...

The Royals open their wallet this offseason

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After the 2017 season, the Royals began their rebuild just like most small market teams do. Now three years later, after not spending too much money, they flip the switch and make multiple big league signings in Michael A. Taylor, Mike Minor, and Carlos Santana. I believe this has a lot to do with Royals majority owner John Sherman allowing General Manager Dayton Moore to put a competitive team on the field day...

Former foe joins the Boys in Blue

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com On December 8, the Royals signed former Royals killer, first baseman Carlos Santana to a two-year deal worth $17.5 million.

His first stint with the Cleveland organization began in 2005 when they acquired him from the Dodgers. Santana made his Indians debut in 2010 against the Nationals. Santana hit...

Royals Target: Carlos Rondon

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Should the Royals take a chance on a former first round draft pick? The Royals are showing this off-season that they are ready to compete. The Royals have answered many questions this off-season by adding a starting pitcher and an outfielder. The team still must add a bullpen arm or two. Under the new ownership group the Royals are showing that they are willing to spend more money on free agents. However, I...

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,...

The Royals Rotation: A Cornerstone to Future Success

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Back in 2015, the Royals peaked after many rebuilding years under GM Dayton Moore and Manager Ned Yost. The club finished 95-67 and went on to win the Fall Classic. That team wasn’t necessarily remembered for its’ starting rotation though. It was the contact friendly lineup and lights out bullpen that led the way to the Commissioner’s Trophy.  When the Royals failed to make it back to October for 2 straight...

Michael Taylor is the perfect Royals signing

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After a slow start to the off-season, the Royals finally made a splash in free agency. KC signed outfielder Michael Taylor. Taylor is 29 years old, and signed a one-year deal for $1.75 million, according to MLB.com. He became a free agent in October after seven seasons with the Washington Nationals. After Alex Gordon announced his retirement at the end of the 2020 season, the Royals were forced to fill an...

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...
