    Orioles celebrate

    Against all odds, the Orioles are poised to clinch their first AL East title in seventeen years.

  3. Ned Yost’s bullpen management strikes again

    Sep 14, 2014, 6:55 PM EST

    Ned Yost

    Royals manager Ned Yost wanted a strikeout, so he brought in Aaron Crow, who has the bullpen’s lowest strikeout rate.

  4. Royals demote Aaron Crow to Double-A

    Aug 27, 2014, 3:45 PM EST

    Aaron Crow

    Crow was an All-Star in 2011 and has a 3.35 ERA in 226 career innings through age 26, including a 3.86 ERA in 59 appearances this season.

  5. What on earth are the Royals doing now?

    Feb 1, 2014, 4:12 PM EST

    Bruce Chen

    When the Royals re-signed Bruce Chen to a one-year, $4.25 million contract this week, it was generally met with tepid approval. One could argue that he’s 90 percent of the pitcher Jason Vargas is for half of the salary and one-quarter the commitment. So, that’s not bad. But then came the fallout. First, it was…

  6. 40 players exchange figures with their clubs following today’s deadline

    Jan 17, 2014, 7:30 PM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    There was a flurry of arbitration-related news today as players and teams scurried to reach agreements prior to the noon central deadline earlier. 39 players did not reach an agreement with their respective teams, and as such, they have exchanged salary figures with their clubs. Of note, Braves closer Craig Kimbrel filed for $9 million,…

  7. Royals to give Hochevar, Davis second… mmm, sixth chances as SPs

    Dec 9, 2013, 5:15 PM EST

    Luke Hochevar

    After two seasons as a below average starter, Wade Davis broke through as a reliever for the Rays in 2012, amassing a 2.43 ERA and striking out 87 in 70 1/3 innings. The Royals plan after picking him up in the James Shields-Wil Myers trade? Move him back to the rotation. Luke Hochevar was a…

  8. Aaron Crow and Tim Collins “very available” via trade

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:29 PM EST

    Royals logo

    The Royals don’t have much wiggle room with their payroll after signing left-hander Jason Vargas to a four-year, $32 million contract last week, so they are willing to deal some of their bullpen surplus in order to address other areas of need. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star was told by rival club officials…

  9. A Thoroughly Enjoyable Season

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:45 AM EST

    Cleveland Indians v Kansas City Royals

    Well, it’s Sept. 17 … and the Kansas City Royals have a shot at the postseason. It’s a bit of a longshot, sure. They are 2 1/2 games behind Texas in the wildcard standings right now, which is hardly insurmountable (especially the way the Rangers are playing). But they also have Cleveland and Baltimore ahead…

  10. Miguel Cabrera blasts walk-off home run as Tigers defeat the Royals

    Aug 17, 2013, 11:55 PM EST

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    It was, as baseball endings go, about as predictable as they come. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera led off the bottom of the ninth with the game tied 5-5. He was 1-for-4 to that point with an RBI single. Entering the night with a .450 on-base percentage, simply reaching with a single or a walk…

  11. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 30, 2013, 7:11 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  12. 2013 Preview: Kansas City Royals

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season.

  13. The Unbeatable Kansas City Royals

    Mar 6, 2013, 9:23 AM EST

    Eric Hosmer

    SURPRISE, Ariz. — When I was columnist for The Kansas City Star, I would write an annual column where I predicted the Kansas City Royals to win the division. It wasn’t quite an inside joke … and it certainly wasn’t a serious prediction. It was, instead, my best effort to capture a little bit of…

  14. Royals misjudge their talent, Wil pay the price

    Dec 9, 2012, 11:58 PM EST

    Dayton Moore, David Glass

    Royals GM Dayton Moore has told us for years to “trust the process.” For better or worse, he put forth his endgame on Sunday night, sacrificing top prospects Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi, not to mention third baseman Patrick Leonard and left-hander Mike Montgomery, in order to bring in James Shields and Wade Davis from…

  15. Royals want a player, not a prospect, for Jonathan Broxton

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:29 PM EST

    Jonathan Broxton

    That according to FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi: Broxton, who was signed to set up Joakim Soria this season, has a 1.99 ERA and 21 saves in 24 opportunities as Kansas City’s closer. Still, the Royals would likely be OK without him, as they’d still have some combination of Greg Holland, Aaron Crow and Tim Collins to…

  16. Jonathan Broxton melts down, blows game in 12th

    Apr 11, 2012, 9:00 PM EST

    Jemile Weeks, Brayan Pena

    Jonathan Broxton struck out the side Sunday to earn his first save for the Royals. His outing Wednesday didn’t go so well. After Oakland’s Seth Smith reached on an Alcides Escobar error in the 12th, Broxton walked two batters and hit two more to take a blown save and a loss in a 5-4 game.…

  17. Two weeks after Joakim Soria’s surgery the Royals still haven’t named a closer

    Apr 2, 2012, 12:48 PM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Royals manager Ned Yost declined to name a fill-in closer after news that Joakim Soria would miss the entire season following Tommy John elbow surgery and two weeks later he’s still yet to identify the ninth-inning replacement. It’ll either be former Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton or second-year setup man Greg Holland, but according to Bob…

  18. Springtime Storylines: Are the Kansas City Royals finally ready to contend?

    Mar 27, 2012, 4:16 PM EST

    Kansas City Royals v Texas Rangers

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: Kansas City Royals. The Big Question: Are the Kansas City Royals finally ready to contend? Last season the Royals took…

  19. Joakim Soria needs season-ending Tommy John surgery

    Mar 23, 2012, 1:36 PM EST

    Joakim Soria

    Joakim Soria got second and third opinions after being diagnosed with a damaged ulnar collateral ligament and they all agreed, so the 27-year-old Royals closer will undergo Tommy John elbow surgery on April 3. Typically recovery timetables are 12-18 months, so Soria will miss the entire season and could be limited in early 2013 as…

  20. Second opinion confirms Joakim Soria’s ligament damage, Tommy John surgery looms

    Mar 21, 2012, 12:12 PM EST

    Joakim Soria

    Joakim Soria moved one step closer to Tommy John surgery, as a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum confirmed the initial diagnosis of a damaged ulnar collateral ligament. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that Soria is “taking a few days off to consider options” following the second opinion, but adds that surgery…

  21. Royals move Aaron Crow back to bullpen following Joakim Soria’s elbow injury

    Mar 20, 2012, 1:18 PM EST

    Aaron Crow

    So much for Aaron Crow‘s transition from reliever to starter. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals have decided to cancel those plans and move Crow back to the bullpen following Joakim Soria‘s elbow injury. Soria was diagnosed with a damaged ulnar collateral ligament and might be headed for Tommy John…

  22. Broxton will be the setup man in Kansas City; Aaron Crow will go to the rotation

    Nov 29, 2011, 12:58 PM EST

    Aaron Crow

    When the Royals’ signing of Jonathan Broxton was announced this morning, the reaction of most people was “wait, isn’t the Kansas City bullpen kind of crowded already?”  Why, yes.  Yes it is.  But it won’t be going forward because Dayton Moore was just on the radio and said that Joakim Soria will remain the closer,…

  23. All-Star reliever Aaron Crow wants spot in Royals’ rotation

    Nov 23, 2011, 10:47 AM EST

    Aaron Crow

    Aaron Crow made the All-Star team as a rookie and finished the year with a 2.76 ERA and 65 strikeouts in 62 innings, but now the Royals are giving the 25-year-old former first-round pick a chance to win a rotation spot in 2012 after he started in college and the minors. Crow told Bob Dutton…
