A blueprint is already set for one of the Royals most valuable trade pieces

The New York Yankees laid the groundwork for the Royals to get a nice return on their super-utility man. The Kansas City Royals have finally begun the fire sale that we all knew was coming. Jon Jay and Kelvin Herrera are gone, and you can bet that teams are calling to check in on several other Royals players as well. One of the names that teams will target will be 2B/1B/CF/LF/RF and 2017 AL stolen base leader Whit Merrifield. Whit Merrifield has become a fan favorite in Kansas City and it’s really no secret why. He’s currently slashing .293/.370/.421/.791 with 15 SB and a 118 wRC+ in...

Thoughts on a 4-1 Rangers win

Rangers 4, Royals 1 Rangers 4, Royals 1 That was a nice, simple win for the Rangers, a 4-1 victory with some hitting and good pitching and nice defense. It was reminiscent of a couple of years ago, when the Rangers were good. Cole Hamels had some issues early, walking the first batter of the game after getting up 0-2 on him, seeing the runner advance to second on a wild pitch and to third on a stolen base with no outs. After a K, another walk put runners on first and third with one out, but a Salvador Perez GIDP ended the inning. That was largely it as far as trouble went for Hamels,...

Drew VerHagen broke his nose, is now on the DL

The Tigers recalled righthander Johnny Barbato to replace VerHagen. What initially just looked like an awkward play at first base has turned more painful for poor Drew VerHagen. The Detroit Tigers placed the 27-year-old righthander on the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday morning with a nasal fracture. The team recalled righthander Johnny Barbato to replace VerHagen on the 25-man roster. VerHagen was injured on a quick developing play in Tuesday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds. First baseman John Hicks fielded a potential double play ball and threw to second base for the first out. The...

We need to talk more about the Eds

Eduardo Escobar and Eddie Rosario have carried this team, but I don’t think we’re fully aware of how good they’ve been this year. It’s no secret that Eduardo Escobar and Eddie Rosario have simultaneously carried the Twins offense this season. Prior to Tuesday night’s game, Escobar was hitting .302/.353/.579 (148 wRC+) while Rosario was just a tiny bit better at .321/.359/.579 (152 wRC+). Those wRC+ figures summarize how much offensive value each player has provided, with 100 being the average player. Mike Trout currently is having the Mike Trout season of his career, leading the...
