The Royals wanted a Major League ready starter. Instead, they got something better for the future.

The Royals have a 3-3 road trip in California and head to KC for an important ten game home stand.
Other than the mess that Yuniesky Betancourt and the other second basemen are in, the roster could have been filled out prior to spring training.
It’s likely the Royals will not make any big signings or trades by Spring Training. Some fans may not like it, but it may be the best decision.
