Royals Rank First With the Best ARM in the American League

Fangraphs keeps an ARM rating as a component of UZR (glossary here). Among AL teams, the Royals have the best ARM score, and because I'm all about the positives here at RR, I thought I'd pass that along.

  1. Royals: 8.2
  2. Blue Jays: 7.9
  3. Angels: 2.6

Generally, Dayton Moore has preferred (or at least tolerated) big arm guys over range players in the OF. We're seeing that play out fully this season.
