Rosenthal: Royals Seek Platoon Partner for Francoeur

"The Royals would like to add a left-handed-hitting outfielder who could spell Jeff Francoeur against tough righties, according to major league sources. If that outfielder could play center and serve as protection for the oft-injured Lorenzo Cain, all the better. Francoeur has a career .820 OPS against left-handers but only a .702 OPS against righties. Jarrod Dyson is a left-handed hitter, but not strong enough offensively to fill the role the Royals envision. The Royals, who considered Brennan Boesch before he signed with the Yankees, are not optimistic about finding the player they want before Opening Day."
