Here is a look at who they could try to sell: Ranked based on MY OPINION of each players individual value/Cost to acquire.
Merrifield - 3/14.5 - GM says he will be expensive. His age may limit the number of teams willing to pay the expense.
Soler - 1/4+Arb 4 - He's finding his power stroke. 2 Year of control.
Duffy - 2/30.75 - Could trade at the deadline, could wait for the off-season.
Bailey - Rental - Started terribly but has been fantastic in his last 4 starts.
Hamilton - Rental (7.5 Million Mutual Option) - Someone will want that speed for the playoffs. Maybe the Twins?
Diekman - Rental (5.75 Mutual Option) - Hittable with a high K/9 so maybe fixable?
Boxberger - Rental - Can't see him staying in KC
Peralta - Rental (7M Mutual Option) - Can't see him staying in KC
Maldanado - Rental - Who needs a catcher?
Gordon - Rental (23 million mutual option that only the Royals would consider). Think Mauer when you think Gordon. He is the Joe Mauer of the Kansas City Royals. No way he is traded.
Please take the contract off our Hands:
Kennedy - 1/16.5 - He would be a high priced reliever at this point and he could be converted back to the rotation. Either way... The Royals would have to eat some contract to get decent prospect value in return. He is interesting enough that he may not belong here.
Anyone tickle your interest for our Twins. If So, which teams will be bidding against us.
I'd ask about: Duffy, Diekman, Peralta and kick the tires on both Hamilton and Kennedy.
