In an effort to fill the gap left by Eric Hosmer, the Royals signed Lucas Duda to a one-year deal to play first base. But wait, what about Hunter Dozier?
We cover Duda’s deal and Dozier’s fate, as well as taking a big picture look at the roster and who’s safe to make the team out of spring training, and who might end up in Omaha. In the end, some of the guys who are out of options might get the advantage. We looked at the implications.
