Welcome to SB Nation Reacts (formerly known as SB Nation Fanpulse), a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Royals fans, sign up HERE to join SBN Reacts.

After a couple of very quiet off-seasons, the Royals were one of the more aggressive teams in baseball (albeit with a very low benchmark for activity around baseball). With a crop of young pitchers coming up, and Bobby Witt, Jr. lurking with superstar potential, the Royals supplemented a roster filled with Whit Merrifield, Hunter Dozier, Jorge Soler, and Salvador Perez with some patient hitters and veteran pitchers. The club added free agent first baseman Carlos Santana, outfielders Michael A. Taylor and Jarrod Dyson, and pitcher Mike Minor, re-signed reliever Greg Holland, and traded outfielders Franchy Cordero, Khalil Lee and two players to be named later in a three-way-trade for Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi.

Overall, Royals fans approved of the off-season, with 57 percent grading it a “B”, and 31 percent grading it an “A”.

Fans are pretty split on whether the team needs to make any more additions, with just 52 percent saying the team should add one more player.

If the team were to add one more player, fans want to see a hitter.
