Photo by Rob Carr/ Will Seuly Matias be exposed to the Rule 5 draft? Royals Rumblings - News for November 19, 2019 Will Leitch at MLB.com identifies a bounce-back candidate for each team. Royals -- Adalberto Mondesi, SS Mondesi feels like the ultimate post-hype sleeper. He’ll explode a year or two after everyone thought he would, and those 43 stolen bases this past season give you a sense of what he can be. (Teammate Jorge Soler can help him out here.) But as the saying goes, you can’t steal first base, and he has to do something about that career .249 average. Baseball America...

Royals: Jorge Soler and the arbitration process

The Kansas City Royals’ single-season home run king could be headed to arbitration this winter. What does that mean, and how much could he command? Over the years, the Kansas City Royals haven’t been a fan of the MLB’s arbitration system.

So what type of deal could the 27-year-old get? It’s an interesting comparison, but early in 2019, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk, who at the time was 27 years old, signed a five-year, $52 million deal. He hit 31 home runs in 2019, a fraction of Soler’s 48 home run total. But Grichuk had proven himself for a number of seasons prior. Lynn Worthy takes a closer look at outfield prospect Khalil...

Soler Power: Ranking the home runs 40-31

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ We’ve reached the Top 40 portion of our countdown. After a brief hiatus to observe a World Series, the Jorge Soler home run countdown continues. This week, we break into the top 40. This is an incredibly difficult process, so please spare a thought for your humble ranker of dingers.

Royals Rumblings - News for October 30, 2019

Minda Haas Kuhlmann Halloween-een. The World Series will go to seven games. The Nationals came up with a win in spite of a bizarre, confusing interference call that was reviewed despite not being reviewable. At KC Kingdom, Leigh Oleszczak looks ahead to the 2020 outfield options if Alex Gordon retires and Whit Merrifield is traded. That’s where things could get interesting, as the Royals would have a plethora of choices to man the outfield next year. The biggest names in that group are Brett Phillips, Jorge Soler, and Bubba Starling while Hunter Dozier and Ryan McBroom also dabbled in...

Fancy dress. | Minda Haas Kuhlmann Over at the official team blog of the Royals, Nick Kappel runs through Jorge Soler’s history, from his defection from Cuba in 2011 through his record-breaking 2019 season. After the injury healed, Soler rejoined [private hitting coach Mike] Tosar in Miami last offseason. He wanted to continue refining his approach under the tutelage of Tosar and his relentless style. They would meet four to five times a week, but only after Soler would run or lift weights. Tosar pushed Soler to refine his mental approach, and inside the cages, Soler worked to better...
