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.

Five years later, that pop hasn’t arrived. Cain has hit just 17 HR in his 1,369 career PA, or one homer every...
