Its looking like the Royals are going to resign Escobar. Its a confusing move to me as we are creating a logjam at SS. This is most likely not going to be a contending year so why not let Mondesi sink or swim at SS the whole season? Rumor has it that the Royals are looking for Mondesi to possibly play 2B which means Merrifield would be traded. That would mean both of my favorite players(Cain going to the Brewers) would be gone. Mondesi is also being considered in CF. Muddying up the SS waters is the fact that the Royals also signed Goins from Toronto. He can also play 3rd. Add the fact that Nicky Lopez is projected to be ready in 2019 and these moves look really confusing. Moustakis and Hosmer are still available.
