According to Ken Rosenthal, the Royals had interest in Mat Latos before he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds. Rosenthal also reports that Kansas City likes Oakland Athletics LHP Gio Gonzalez, but does not wish to part with Wil Myers or Mike Montgomery in order to acquire a starter.
As was speculated earlier, despite re-signing Bruce Chen and acquiring Jonathan Sanchez from the San Francisco Giants, the Royals could still make a run at Edwin Jackson or Roy Oswalt.
