Royals pitcher Ervin Santana continued to roll with the relentless trade rumors Monday by sending out another round of humorous messages on twitter. “Still @Target of #traderumors” he tweeted. “#Pitching at #TargetField tomorrow.” Santana then included a link to a “video I made about being a #target.” Here it is -- and it’s worth a look even if you’ve already seen it. It’s funny stuff but all indications suggest Santana is increasingly unlikely to be traded prior to the non-waiver deadline of 3 p.m. Wednesday. One Royals official said “We haven’t talked about that in days.” What also seems increasingly clear is the Royals if they do make a move are looking to bolster their current roster for a stretch run. For the first time in 10 years they see themselves as potential buyers at the deadline. The Royals’ top immediate need is a second baseman who can hit which is fueling speculation of a possible deal with the Angels who appear willing to trade Howie Kendrick. The Angels are seeking a starting pitcher with front-line potential who is under club control for several years. The Royals have several prospects who fit that profile including Danny Duffy Yordano Ventura and Kyle Zimmer. But club officials are reluctant to trade them. Further there is nothing at this point to suggest a deal is under serious discussion let alone close to completion.
