The hot stove is hot! The Royals break out of the gate with a pair of signings, inking pitcher Mike Minor and outfielder Michael Taylor. Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and Matthew LaMar discuss how they fit the roster, and whether Maikel Franco is at risk of being non-tendered. Among the topics discussed:
What does Mike Minor mean for the rotation?
Does the Michael Taylor signing make sense?
Will the Royals make another move?
What do these signings say about John Sherman?
Will Maikel Franco be non-tendered?
