The remainder of the Kansas City Royals’ team should be available
Look, given the status of this team and this season, is there any reason why the Kansas City Royals shouldn’t be willing to entertain a trade that could involve any of the remaining players on the roster?
At this point I would say majority of the roster can be had in a trade, given how this season has gone and the goal of improving for the future. The big question with this sort of idea and mentality would be centered on whether or not the Royals could get enough in return.
Jorge Soler is starting to heat up, but up to this point, he has had such an atrocious year at the plate. However, when looking at possibly moving Soler, it’s worth considering that, at the end of the year, he becomes an unrestricted free agent. Unfortunately, the Royals may not get much in return for Soler if a trade were to be made.
Michael Taylor is a player that could be moved as a bench bat for a competitive ball club. Taylor has played well in the outfield with 5 outfield assists, and a fielding percentage of .986. He’s a solid contributor for anyone looking to shore up depth.
The list could very well continue on with Carlos Santana and various other bullpen arms.
In the end these moves will clear the way, possibly give the Kansas City Royals more longterm flexibility, and also allow some minor league players to get some playing time at the big league level.
