Spring Training Game VIII: Royals at White Sox

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Jordan Lyles Era continues Spring Training games are back and they are beautiful. Especially Royals games. Because the back of our jerseys look normal. Kansas City has some cold bats they want to get revved up today. Salvador Perez, Vinnie Pasquantino, and Nelson Velazquez are a combined 1-22 entering today’s matchup with the White Sox. They’ll face a lineup that is 33% ex-Royals, as Andrew Benintendi, Mike Moustakas, and Martin Madonado all get the start today for a Chicago split squad. Jordan Lyles makes his first appearance of...

Photo by Michael Reaves/ A home for former Royals. After losing 101 games, their worst season since 1970, the White Sox fired GM Rick Hahn and promoted Chris Getz from within to kickstart the franchise. The former Royals second baseman has made the South Side a home for former Royals, hiring executives Jin Wong and Gene Watson, former Royals pitcher Brian Bannister, and bringing on former players into the organization like Mike Moustakas, Nicky Lopez, Martín Maldonado, Brett Phillips, Tim Hill, and Jesse Chavez. The White Sox are also led in the dugout by former Royals...

Everyone was focusing on the wrong thing in the David Sandlin/John Schreiber trade

Everyone was focusing on the wrong thing in the David Sandlin/John Schreiber trade

Kansas City Royals relief pitcher John Schreiber (46) during photo day at spring training in Surprise, AZ. | Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports It’s fine! On February 17, the Kansas City Royals traded pitching prospect David Sandlin to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for relief pitcher John Schreiber. Sandlin, who turned 23 in the intervening time between the trade and this piece, had pitched well in 12 A-ball starts last year and was a potential breakout candidate. Schreiber, who turns 30 in March, is an established bullpen arm who is under team control for three more...

What should the Royals starting lineup look like?

What should the Royals starting lineup look like?

Photo by Ed Zurga/ How would you pencil them in? The Royals have begun the exhibition schedule, and while we have a good idea of who the starters will be when the season opens up on March 28, we have yet to see a preview of what their Opening Day lineup will look like. We could have a decent idea of how Matt Quatraro will line up his starters from last year. But the team has since added free agent Hunter Renfroe and will get Vinnie Pasquantino back from injury. Here is my best guess at the Opening Day lineup, with 2024 ZIPS projected stats. Bobby is almost certainly...

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ Cole Ragans shoves. Sam McDowell writes that if the Royals are going to improve, they need some young hitters to get better. There are going to be a lot of conversations about the additions to the Royals this spring. There should be. It’s not often in Kansas City we’re focused on free agent acquisitions. They see the AL Central as winnable. But if that’s going to be realistic, they can’t be reliant strictly on the newcomers. The returners need to show some growth, and part of that growth is just plain maturity. A sign of the latter...

That’s at least partially how he arrived at the productive aspect. See, there’s something you should know about Pasquantino, in case you don’t already. He hates free time. He spends his offseason working because, well, he enjoys it. On Sunday, the Royals had an off-day here at spring training. Know where Pasquantino spent it? At the facility. Working. So — arm in sling last summer — his solution, after a couple of hours of...
