Royals Rumblings - News for December 10, 2019

Lynn Worthy reports that Dayton Moore doesn’t expect to sign a free agent any time soon.

“For us, with our level of performance in the market, no one is going to jump up and take our (offers) right now,” Moore said Monday in San Diego, site of this year’s Winter Meetings. “Any free agents we sign will be January or February.

“Something may surprise me. And that doesn’t mean we won’t make an offer or two prior to then. But at the level we’ll be committing I think there’s very little chance we sign a free-agent before we leave San Diego. But we’ll have discussions.”
