Kansas City Royals: What does future look like at third base?

For the last seven years or so, the Kansas City Royals have had third base filled out with Mike Moustakas. With Moose in Milwaukee now, third base is a big question mark moving forward. After the 2017 season, third base was one of those open positions for the Kansas City Royals.

What will the 2019 Royals look like?

What will the 2019 Royals look like?

Better than this one, we hope. The non-waiver trade deadline is over, with the Royals having moved three short-term pieces in Jon Jay, Kelvin Herrera, and Mike Moustakas for long-term prospects that can hopefully help the Royals enjoy better times than this year. Those prospects, combined with the college-heavy 2018 draft class, and some improvement from lower-level prospects like Seuly Matias and Khalil Lee provide improvement from a lowly-ranked farm system. However the upper ranks of the system are still quite barren, with little talent ready to step in and contribute next year. The...

Trade deadline open thread

Trade deadline open thread

Trading places! Today is the non-waiver trade deadline, meaning the last day players can be traded without clearing waivers. Already we have seen a lot of activity before the deadline, and the Royals have moved outfielder Jon Jay, pitcher Kelvin Herrera, and third baseman Mike Moustakas in separate trades. I wouldn’t expect the Royals to be too active today now that those players have been dealt. Lucas Duda could be on the move as Ryan O’Hearn has been promoted. Dayton Moore has said Whit Merrifield will not be traded. That probably means Danny Duffy won’t be dealt as well. You could...

Is there a trade market for Lucas Duda?

Is there a trade market for Lucas Duda?

Or is he a trade dud? The non-waiver trade deadline is tomorrow, and the Royals have already dealt their three most valuable assets that were scheduled to be free agents at the end of the season - Jon Jay, Kelvin Herrera, and Mike Moustakas. Dayton Moore has indicated that Whit Merrifield won’t be traded at the deadline, which also probably means other long-term assets like Danny Duffy and Salvador Perez won’t be dealt either. Jason Hammel and Ian Kennedy seem unmovable in their current state, and Alcides Escobar is virtually worthless, so that really only leaves one player left that...

Reactions to the Mike Moustakas trade

Goodbye, Moose. The Royals have traded away a popular long-time player in Mike Moustakas to the Brewers in exchange for two young Major League-ready players in Brett Phillips and Jorge Lopez. Royals fans had been bracing themsleves for a trade for months, so let’s see what others around baseball had to say about the big deal. The #Royals have had their eye on Brett Phillips for a while now. They love his speed, cannon arm, energy and ability to play center field. There are questions about how good a hitter he'll be. But as one Royals person said, "He's someone we can turn into a really...
