After two weeks off, we have returned to talk about a slew of signings that add depth and intrigue to the Royals’ pitching staff this spring.
We discussed Seth Maness and his miracle surgery, Jason Hammel and his value, Travis Wood and Nathan Karns and the starting rotation battle, as well as youngsters Matt Strahm, Josh Staumont, and Kyle Zimmer.
We also talked about the rumblings about Eric Hosmer contract extension talks and the difficulty in projecting what the kind of deal might look like.
