    Mariano Rivera’s career could be over. Think about that for a moment, and let it set in. If that is indeed the case, if the 42-year-old is unable to come back, or unwilling to go through the grueling rehab required to pitch again, then this is truly a sad day for baseball. Rivera was injured…

  2. Jeff Francoeur already has Kansas City media under his spell

    It’s been less than a week since Jeff Francoeur signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Royals, but he predictably already has local media members in Kansas City writing the same type of overly glowing prose and outright fluff about him that became commonplace in Atlanta and New York. Yesterday the Royals held a…

  3. Royals “in listen-only mode” for Zack Greinke trade talks

    Zack Greinke

    General manager Dayton Moore told Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star that the Royals are “in listen-only mode” when it comes to Zack Greinke trade talks. “I haven’t made one call to one organization asking them if they’re interested in Zack Greinke,” Moore said. Of course, that’s ultimately meaningless. Moore doesn’t have to make…

  4. Royals “now appear open to trading” Robinson Tejeda

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Joaquin Benoit opened the free agent market by signing a three-year, $16.5 million deal with the Tigers and various other relievers are reportedly shopping for three-year contracts as well, so Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals “are now open to trading” Robinson Tejeda. Dutton notes that general manager Dayton Moore…

  5. Former No. 1 overall pick Bryan Bullington is headed to Japan

    Bryan Bullington

    Bryan Bullington finally notched his first big-league win with eight shutout innings against the Yankees on August 15, eight years after the Pirates selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 draft, but now it looks like that may prove to be his only major-league victory. Designated for assignment by the Royals…

  6. Rangers “could end up being first in line” for Zack Greinke

    Zack Greinke

    Waiting for Cliff Lee to choose his long-term home makes it tough for the Rangers to pull off any big moves in the meantime, but T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that general manager Jon Daniels is in the market for rotation help and “could end up being first in line” for Zack Greinke if the…

  7. Royals not willing to “dump” former top prospect Alex Gordon

    Alex Gordon

    In addition to teams calling the Royals about Zack Greinke’s availability Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that Alex Gordon is generating some interest in as well. However, according to Dutton the Royals aren’t “willing to dump him for little in return.” Gordon is a former college player of the year and No.…

  8. Royals acquired Vin Mazzaro for the stuff, not the stats

    Last night the Royals traded veteran outfielder David DeJesus to the A’s for 24-year-old starter Vin Mazzaro and pitching prospect Justin Marks. Marks is a former third-round pick and a solid prospect, but the key to the deal from Kansas City’s point of view was clearly Mazzaro, as general manager Dayton Moore called him “a…

  9. Needing 40-man roster spot, Royals cut loose Brian Bannister

    Jason Kendall and David DeJesus returning from the 60-day disabled list meant the Royals needed to clear a couple spots on the 40-man roster and they did so by cutting loose Brian Bannister and Brian Anderson. Bannister is one of my favorite players because he’s a good quote, very smart, and a fan of sabermetrics,…

  10. Zack Greinke can block a trade to 15 teams in 2011

    Zack Greinke

    As the Royals drop more and more hints that they’ll be entertaining offers for Zack Greinke this winter Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com passes along the details of Greinke’s no-trade clause. According to Morosi, he has the right to block a trade to a pre-selected list of 20 teams through the end of this year.…
