The Royals signed impressive starting pitcher Michael Wacha to a two-year deal last week, setting up one of the best Kansas City rotations in years.
He spoke Monday for the first time since the trade with comments about the future that should thill Royals fans.
See what he had to say below.
Michael Wacha's First Comments as a Royal Should Excite Fans
Wacha spurned other interested teams to join the Royals and his positivity is a signal that J.J. Picollo has this team moving in the right direction.
After adding Seth Lugo to a $45 million deal, Kansas City now has two strong starters from last year's Padres team to join a promising rotation including Cole Ragans and Brady Singer.
Over the last two seasons, Wacha is 25-6 with an ERA around 3.3. He's one of the more dependable starters in the American League and will be backed by a rising offense led by Bobby Witt Jr., Vinnie Pasquantino and Maikel Garcia.
The 2024 season looks bright for Royals fans and Wacha's comments are a big step towards playing competitive baseball once again.
