The KC Royals have been decent in the past, even won some world series. But they may become a talent if this team makes good decisions with the free agents, though there were some rumors, that may have been forgotten, as we all know Jose Guillen has been officially been traded to the SF giants.
The Kansas City Royals organization in 2009 (which for this situation it makes it look like the Royals at the time were a decreasing team.) They made the decision to either trade, or release many players for whatever reason including,
Mark Teahan ( gone)
Mike Olivo (gone)
Mike Jacobs ( most definetly gone)
Coco Crisp (gone hardly lasted even a entire month)
Noticeable Royals that may have been traded but in some ways may be are still around
SS Mike Aviles (barley around, not the hugest factor for his position due to the bench)
Alex Gorden (was gone but in some ways cases is playing with the royals at left field)
RF David Dejesus (in some cases was going to be gone but it didnt go threw)
DH Billy butler (still with the royals to this day)
Notes on the active roster:
Only Billy Butler, Mike Aviles and Alex Gordon are officially on the active roster. The Royals organization believes Gordon will be a huge talent. All 3 of these players have rotated positions. So there may be some trade rumors and also some free agents that they can get if the Royals make that decision. Here is some info for the Royals traded, released or added players for their roster:
If the Royals had decided to trade Scott Posednik to the Los Angeles Dodgers for 2 of the dodgers minor league players including, Catcher Lucas May, and right handed Pitcher Elisaul Pimentel for the Royals, Lucas May is going to do part time the starting job at Catcher. Also for an injury update David Dejesus has required to go to Cleveland to converse on what he could do about his injured thumb. David has a right thumb sprain after delivering a huge smack to the wall, and hopfully could not miss that much, but could miss a majority of time.
A Player I believe could become part of this Kansas City Royals organization, (0r so to speak A player I believe they could get) Is:
Garret Anderson, yes you may have heard that Garret has been in destructively bad performance on offensive hitting wise, but Garret in the past has made the progress to be an actual hitter he may be in a hitting slump, but Garret has an exellent swing. This including pitches he likes the hit including the high fastball, he can really hit well on that pitch when he’s on the hot spot, and if he will sign with the Royals, (though it may take a while for him to get signed) but if he decides to sign with the Royals, I believe he could make the 300 home run club.
