A Look at the Royals Defense in 2015

  Durham Bulls fictional manager Joe “Skip” Riggins once said, “This is a simple game. You throw the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball.” The 2015 Royals will definitely be expected to catch the ball.

What better time than mid-February to start thinking about guys who the Kansas City Royals could target at the July 31 trade deadline to help their run to the postseason? I mentioned last week that the Royals have a really high ceiling and a really low floor, but I would be terribly disappointed if they weren't at least in contention after the first three months of the season.

Player Profile #143: Lorenzo Cain | OF | KC

Scouting report after scouting report makes mention of how excellent Lorenzo Cain’s bat speed is. When he was just breaking into the league in 2010 as a 24-year-old outfielder, the 6’2 Cain was a speedy, defense-first player with raw tools and some projectable pop. Five years later, that pop hasn’t arrived. Cain has hit just 17 HR in his 1,369 career PA, or one homer every...
