Who should make the squad? Based on current playing time. Ex-Royals farmhands included.
My leading choices are:
C John Buck
1B Mike Sweeney
2B Mark Grudzielanek
3B Mark Teahen
SS Jeff Keppinger
OF Jose Bautista
OF Raul Ibanez
OF Johnny Damon
C Miguel Olivo
OF Matt Diaz, Matt Stairs
IF Andres Blanco, Ross Gload
DL Coco Crisp, Carlos Beltran, Jason LaRue, Mark Ellis, Endy Chavez
The only other ex-Royals on active rosters (who all happen to be catchers) are Ronny Paulino, Gregg Zaun, and Matt Treanor.
Jermaine Dye would definitely make the team if he had a job.
Mike Jacobs may reappear on this list after he goes through waivers.
