The Royals struggled to get off to a good start this week, but it was a pretty good week for some former Royals around the league.

Kendrys Morales raised some eyebrows when he signed a three-year, $39 million deal with the Blue Jays, but his grand slam this week helped alleviate any nerves fans may have had.

Jarrod Dyson had the go-ahead hit in the ninth inning of Seattle’s Thursday night win over Houston.

The Royals have had bullpen woes, but the Rockies have been solid late in games with Greg Holland locking up three saves in three opportunities so far.

Meanwhile in Chicago, Wade Davis is two-for-two.

And teammate Ben Zobrist went yard.

Even former Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie is back in the big leagues after spending a whole year out of the Majors last year. He will start tonight for the Washington Nationals.

Here is a list of other former Royals on Major League rosters.
