This week, Jeff was out fighting off a nasty cold so Mike flew solo.
There hasn’t been much happening yet this offseason, for the Royals or anyone else. But Kansas City did protect some players from the Rule 5 Draft, and they have arbitration decisions due on Friday as you listen to this episode.
Mike discussed the cases of Kelvin Herrera, Nate Karns, Brandon Maurer, and Mike Morin and who, if anyone, could be nontendered. He also discussed why he’s not concerned about the Royals leaving Ryan O’Hearn and Frank Schwindel off the 40 man roster and available for Rule 5 selection.
