Spring training is a time for evaluation and for players to prove what they can bring to the team. A few KC Royals have seen poor starts in 2020. The first weekend of spring training games is complete and fans have gotten a decent look and some players, old and new, around the MLB.
The KC Royals saw some decent time out of multiple young players in Sunday’s spring training game, giving hope for the future of the club. The KC Royals played the second of their Cactus League spring training games on Sunday against the Cleveland Indians after Saturday’s game was unfortunately rained out.

Baseball has officially returned, as the Texas Rangers kicked off spring training with a 5-4 win against the Kansas City Royals. The game wasn’t a complete loss for the Royals, however, as they saw Ryan O’Hearn and Jorge Soler homer, while getting some encoring performances from their bullpen.
The KC Royals lost their Cactus League opener Friday. It was just an exhibition game, but some interesting things happened. The KC Royals’ 5-4 loss to Texas on Friday came the same way too many did last season–the bullpen blew a late inning lead.
Spring training games have started and KC Royals fans can finally get a good look at the players battling for a spot on opening day. KC Royals fans can rejoice as baseball has officially started again.
The young shortstop of the KC Royals is the son of a former All-Star and Gold Glove major league outfielder. How do father and son compare?
