Boston Globe writer Nick Cafardo reported the Kansas City Royals interest in both players in his column on Sunday. Last week, Cafardo indicated that the KC Royals wanted a starting pitcher, a bullpen arm, and an infielder before the 2017 season started. In the last two days, Kansas City general manager Dayton Moore has traded for a starting pitcher in Nate Karns, and signed three veteran relievers to minor league deals.
So far, Cafardo’s information about the Royals seems pretty good. But, he also said last week that he didn’t believe that Kansas City would make any further trades.
