Photo by Reed Hoffmann/ The Jays have been keeping an eye on the Royals. The Royals have already made one trade this summer, sending Carlos Santana to Seattle earlier this week. With one month before the trade deadline, you can expect the Royals to be busy looking for ways to get this rebuild project moving faster. General Manager JJ Picollo recently told Anne Rogers at MLB.com that the team would look to move players on expiring contracts, particularly left fielder Andrew Benintendi. “We’re going to be exploring everything we can possibly explore to make our team...

Royals trade Carlos Santana to Seattle, call up Vinnie Pasquantino

Photo by Kelsey Grant/ It’s Vinnie time. The Royals have traded first baseman Carlos Santana and cash considerations to the Seattle Mariners for pitchers Wyatt Mills and William Fleming and have called up first baseman Vinnie Pasquantino from Triple-A Omaha. The club has also designated pitcher Ronald Bolaños for assignment. The 36-year-old Santana seemed unmovable a month ago when he was hitting .150 with an OPS of .528. But he has gone on a tear in the month of June, hitting .357/.478 /.554 in 17 games to put his overall line at .216/.349/.341 with four home runs...

Kansas City Royals somehow find a taker for Carlos Santana

It was not a secret that the Kansas City Royals would love to move on from Carlos Santana.

Carlos Santana’s sudden resurgence doesn’t change anything

Carlos Santana’s sudden resurgence doesn’t change anything

Photo by Jayne Kamin-Oncea/ The benefits do not come close to offsetting the costs of keeping the veteran slugger on the roster this long. If you haven’t been paying close attention to the Royals lately - and who could blame you - you might not have noticed that Carlos Santana has been magma hot in the month of June and raised his season wRC+ all the way up to 98. Still below average, but for a hot minute he had it above average before enduring another oh-fer game. His batting average is now over the Mendoza line and both FanGraphs and Baseball-Reference now show him...

Carlos Santana is not the Royals’ least effective position player

Photo by Ed Zurga/ Another veteran deserves to be cut first, from a certain point of view. Royals fans and Royals Review writers have been in agreement since before the season even began: Carlos Santana has no spot on the 2022 Royals. That was true when the team described hopes of competing and it’s especially true now that the Royals have shown that the only thing they’re in contention for is the worst record in baseball. This article will not contest that assessment. Carlos Santana must go. He needed to go months ago. If hanging on to him this long has given some...

It wasn’t the promotion KC Royals fans yearn for the most, but the move the club made Monday should still whet their appetites for the future.
