The KC Royals may be compelled to alter Nicky Lopez’s role this season.

Between now and Opening Day, the Kings of Kauffman writers are analyzing how various KC Royals performed last season and predicting how they might fare this year. Up today is second baseman Nicky Lopez.

So far in spring training, Nicky Lopez has reverted to his form from last year, as he’s been quite bad at the plate. He seems unable to hit the ball consistently and hasn’t walked much. And although it’s only spring training, Lopez may be on the way out soon.
