Royals Rumblings - News for November 7, 2018
Kansas City Royals: Justin Wilson, LHP
The Royals traded closer Kelvin Herrera to the Nationals last summer, dealing away the final piece of their championship bullpen trio. GM Dayton Moore must rebuild that ‘pen this offseason, and while he’s unlikely to look at the many high-priced relievers on the market, Wilson is a solid mid-range option with some closing experience.

The Royals can run a little bit now. Yes, they still have Salvador Perez and Alex Gordon as anchors at the bottom, but adding Adalberto Mondesi and Brett Phillips to Whit Merrifield and somehow Hunter Dozier and Jorge Soler has made this team a pretty fast and fun to watch team. They had eight players who ranked in the top fourth of the league. That seems pretty good to me.
