Royals Rumblings - News for December 11, 2018
Dayton Moore tells Jeffrey Flanagan the Royals aren’t looking to deal Whit Merrifield.
“We’ve pretty much made it clear we want Whit Merrifield to be part of our team,” Moore said.
Moore made it known before last season’s non-waiver Trade Deadline that he likely wasn’t interested in dealing Merrifield, who is emerging as an offensive weapon as well as a clubhouse leader.
”It is our job to always evaluate the interest of our players,” Moore said. “So that’s what we constantly do. But we’ve made it very clear that while we will talk about anybody, we want Major League players back in return.”
Moore discusses the Hot Stove on MLB Network.
