According to Jon Heyman, MLB Network, the Royals have a “very limited budget” for this season. There are a few million bucks to wear and they hope to resign Alex Gordon, and to add relief or two.

"My hand is still in pretty good shape and my thoughts were, with the 26th man, in my opinion, that many teams are exploring the possibilities for players two ways if they are able to do it," Trumbo said. "So I think this was part of where my head was. Add some value to it, eat some attacks when the games could get out of the team. If you can guy be able to both do something (hitting and hitting But, I think that is invaluable, but it needs to be on a high enough level to do the job. ”
