Weekend Rumblings - News for June 15, 2019

Can’t we all just get along? Weekend Rumblings - News for June 15, 2019 The Royals send Ryan O’Hearn down to bring up Jorge Bonifacio. “Ryan O’Hearn just needs to reset,” manager Ned Yost said. “He’s working his tail off and not getting anywhere. Go down there for a couple weeks, three weeks, whatever it takes to relax a little bit. “We weren’t getting anywhere. He was getting frustrated. He’s not a .180 hitter.” Ned seemed to indicate Jorge Bonifacio likely would be here just until Hunter Dozier comes back, which could be in the next week. They will face all lefty...

Royals Rumblings - News for June 12, 2019

Do more of that winning thing, Royals. Royals Rumblings - News for June 12, 2019 The Royals were happy to talk about their rally to win the game last night. How did Gore stay on the base? “That’s a million-dollar question,” Yost said. ‘Everyone was asking that question. It was like he had magnets on his feet.” Gore, smiling, had no answers, either. “That’s a great question,” Gore said. “Nobody knows. I don’t even know. Luckily, I did.” Hunter Dozier is close to returning. “He’s making progress, but we’ll see,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. Dozier said he had...

Royals bullpen defenestrates a close game out the window and the Red Sox win by a lot

Royals bullpen defenestrates a close game out the window and the Red Sox win by a lot

WHO SAW THAT COMING??? Remember when Scott Barlow was good? Remember the last three weeks when we thought Jake Diekman might be good? Ah, fun times. Once again, the Kansas City Royals bullpen blew the game, tonight’s meltdown leading to at least eight unanswered runs and a loss to the Boston Red Sox. Final score TBD. Not everything was terrible. It seemed that way this week when the 27-year-old breakout star Hunter Dozier went to the IL. During his injury, the Royals turned to Cheslor Cuthbert to pick up the slack, and to his credit he really has done so. After Alex Gordon poked a line...

Royals have “let it be known that nearly anybody on their roster is available in a trade” according to a report

Whit Merrifield is a “most intriguing candidate.” Baseball is heading into the dog days of summer and with the trade deadline two months away, you can expect the start of rumor season. According to MLB.com reporter Mark Feinsand, the Royals have let teams know that “nearly anybody on their roster is available in a trade” with the exception of a few untouchables like Adalberto Mondesi and Hunter Dozier. Not listed as untouchable is Whit Merrifield, who the Royals just signed to a four-year, $16.25 million deal back in January. In fact, Feinsand’s source calls Merrifield a “most...

Jake Diekman could be the Royals most valuable trade chip in 2019

Jake Diekman could be the Royals most valuable trade chip in 2019

The lefty is coming around. Throw out the notion of competing for the second Wild Card, the Kansas City Royals will not be taking the field this post-season. Sitting in the cellar of the American League Central, securing a top five pick looks to be a more likely achievement for the 19-37 Royals. Although no drastic improvements have been seen record-wise in comparison to 2018, there’s reason to remain optimistic for the team in a season or two. In the midst of a plummeting first half. players such as Adalberto Mondesi, Hunter Dozier, Whit Merrifield, Brad Keller, Nicky Lopez, Jorge Soler,...
