Checking in on the Kansas City Royals, where we have a team announced four minor league signings yesterday, two of which are former Rangers, an announcement that minor leaguer Mario Santiago was released to play in Korea, and fans contemplate another year potentially stuck with Chris Getz:

  • Does Trade of Yamaico Navarro Mean More Chris Getz in 2012? - Royals Review
    "The Royals' on-again, off-again, relationship with Chris Getz continues. Rivals come, rivals go, but Getz remains. Mike Aviles is long gone. Yamaico Navarro was potentially a utility threat to Getz, but he's a Pirate now. Johnny Giavotella is around, but he hit only .247/.273/.376 in 46 late-season games last season. Are we primed for another round of Getz?"
  • Royals sign former Rangers Max Ramirez, Greg Golson - Lone Star Ball
    "Max Ramirez came to Texas from Cleveland in exchange for Kenny Loftin in the summer of 2007, and while his bat was highly regarded, his defense led some to believe he would not be able to stick behind the plate. While his defense never progressed that much, his bigger problem is that he failed to hit at the upper levels -- he has a career .262/.338/.405 line in AAA, and a career .217/.343/.357 major league line."
