RYAN VERDUGO RUMORS & GOSSIP

This just in: The Royals starting rotation is bad

Starting pitching, good or bad, affects every part of a baseball game. Look no further than the two disastrous outings by starters Jonathan Sanchez and Ryan Verdugo last Monday and Tuesday night. In two games with the Seattle Mariners, Sanchez and Verdugo gave up a combined 13 runs over three innings. Neither pitcher got out of the second inning and the Royals lost both games, 9...

Verdugo hit hard in Royals debut

Ryan Verdugo's big league debut Tuesday night eerily resembled Jonathan Sanchez's final start a day earlier for the Royals. That's not what Kansas City was hoping for. Verdugo, a 25-year-old left-hander, gave up six runs on eight hits and two walks without making it through two innings of a 9-6 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Sanchez gave up seven runs in 1 1-3 innings...

Royals notebook: Verdugo placed on 40-man roster

The Royals added left-handed pitcher Ryan Verdugo, whom they acquired earlier this month, to their 40-man roster Friday before the 11 p.m. deadline. The move protects Verdugo from selection in the Rule 5 draft, which is Dec. 8 at the winter meetings in Dallas, and leaves the Royals with one available spot on their 40-man roster.

What The Melky Trade Means For The Giants

The Giants sent Jonathan Sanchez and pitching prospect Ryan Verdugo to the Royals Monday for outfielder Melky Cabrera. At first we thought the Giants were overpaying -- and eating into an already depleted stable of quality minor league arms. But, when it comes down to it, Melky fills a major hole for the big club.

Analyzing the Giants and Royals Trade

The Giants and Royals pulled off a trade on Monday that will see Jonathan Sanchez and Ryan Verdugo (largely a non-prospect) head to Kansas City, while Melky Cabrera heads to San Francisco.  Looking at things on the surface, the Giants deal from a surplus of pitching, to help bolster their offense, and the Royals address their need for pitching.  Win-win right?  Well, not necessarily...
