Royals 2023 Season In Review
With a 56-106 record at the end of the 2023 season, the Royals found themselves 31 games behind the American League Central division leaders. The Royals road game record was 23-58 overall. Kansas City was one of three teams in the American League that had over 100 losses for the season. Edward Olivares hit six home runs in September, which made up half of his 12 for the season. His offensive output was only topped by one other player in 2023. Bobby Witt, Jr. is sure to get a few votes for MLB's MVP this season.
The Royals' bullpen will need to improve in 2024. Bullpen pitching had the second-highest walk rate and ERA. Tucker Davidson has moved on to play for the Orioles and Taylor Hearn has elected to become a free agent next year. Three more players are surely to become free agents after the World Series comes to a close. Matt Duffy, Zack Greinke, and Brad Keller will most likely move on from the organization.

Royals 2021 Season In Review
Where will the Kansas City Royals go in 2022? Will they recover from their 74-88 record in 2021? Time will tell. The Royals only managed to finish the season just one win better than the Minnesota Twins. To start the 2021 season, the Royals came out and played great baseball. They were 15-8 by late April, looking great. Where the team struggled was the May 2nd to May 13th stretch where the team lost eleven in a row. There was a stretch where the team went 1-11 later in June. It was all too much to overcome for the Royals. Whit Merrifield topped the team in hits. Salvador Perez was the team's home run leader with 48. He had 121 RBIs, batted .273, and had over 169 hits. The top strikeout pitcher for the season was Mike Minor. He had 149 strikeouts and won eight games. Scott Barlow picked up 16 saves, and the team looks to improve its record in 2022.

The Kansas City Royals are not among the historically rich teams in major league baseball. They were founded in 1969, named in honor of the old Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro Leagues, which produced some of the greatest baseball players the game has ever seen, most notably, Satchel Paige, who is considered by some to be the greatest pitcher in the history of the game of baseball. The modern-day Kansas City Royals played at the old Municipal Stadium from 1969 to 1973 before moving into Kauffman Stadium, which is their home to this day. As a team, the Royals were at their best during the 1980s and were even one of baseball's biggest draws during that decade. It was during this decade that they had guys who could flat-out play, like George Brett, Brett Saberhagen, and Bo Jackson, just to name a few. The modern-day Royals have been through some tough times, but are beginning to find their way out of the wilderness led by a young group of players such as Eric Hosmer, Alex Gordon, and Billy Butler. Their pitching staff is anchored by "Big Game" James Shields, who is amongst the league leaders on a year-to-year basis regarding innings pitched and complete games.
Kansas City Royals Versus St. Louis Cardinals
The Royals are currently located in the American League Central division and their four rivals are the Minnesota Twins, Cleveland Guardians, Detroit Tigers, and Chicago White Sox. They also have a rivalry with the St. Louis Cardinals which is referred to as the I-70 rivalry. When major league baseball went to Interleague play in 1997, it allowed the Cardinals and Royals to play in season games that meant something, not just spring training games. The Cardinals have consistently maintained the upper hand in this series, and in the 76-game history of this series, they have a 45-31 record. The next meeting in this series will take place at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, and that series will begin on June 2nd. These two teams were also the contestants in the 1985 World Series, in which the Royals won 4-3.
Outside of the Cardinals, whom it seems to have a rivalry with every team in baseball, no other common opponent of the Royals stands out as a rivalry. They have the four divisional opponents, but none of the so-called "experts" would consider them a true rival. That probably has something to do with the Royals lack of success recently. Last season when the Royals nearly missed out on the playoffs was just their second winning season since 1993. Despite all of the non-success, this is an up-and-coming team that is on the verge of greatness, if they can just figure out a way to get all of these young bats to start hitting.
The Kansas City Royals currently sit at 40-36, good for second place in the American League Central, six games behind the red-hot Cleveland Indians. The Royals have had injury problems galore this season, so their 40-36 record is quite impressive despite all of the injuries. Tim Collins, Kris Medlen, Mike Minor, Jason Vargas, and Mike Moustakas are all done for 2016. Still, the Royals have a deep farm, and that should get them back to the postseason in 2016.
The Kansas City Royals are coming off an average, but disappointing 2016 season. They finished the year with a record of 81-81, good for third place in the American League Central Division, but nowhere near postseason contention. It is hard to imagine 81-81 being disappointing for a franchise like the Royals, but that is the case for the 2014 and 2015 American League Champions.
The Royals had a rather quiet off-season. Their “big” move, was trading Wade Davis to the Chicago Cubs for outfielder Jorge Soler. They also settled arbitration with first basemen Eric Hosmer and signed Danny Duffy to a five-year contract extension.
It is going to be interesting to see what the Royals do at the trade deadline. If they are still in it, they might go in for one more ride, but if they are out of it, they have some very inviting trade targets who are their upcoming free agents- Eric Hosmer, Alcides Escobar, Mike Moustakas, etc. Stay tuned.
The Kansas City Royals had a very expected 2018 season, finishing last in the American League Central with just 58 wins, good for the second-worst record overall in either league. The Royals are in the opening stages of a rebuild so there is nothing else to say here so let’s move on.
The opening move of the offseason for the Royals was to sign right-handed pitcher Michael Ynoa to a minor league contract with a chance to make the opening-day roster. You did not, but with how injuries are in baseball he is sure to get his chance at some point. Their next decision was to bring in former St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny as a special advisor for player development. Pay attention to this one, they could very well be stashing him somewhere until Ned Yost decides to retire, which could happen soon.
After claiming right-handed pitcher Connor Greene off waivers from the Cardinals, the Royals made a trio of one-year contract signings the next day- third baseman Chelsor Cuthbert, left-handed pitcher Brian Flynn, and right-handed pitcher Jesse Hahn. In December they signed super-utility man Chris Owings to a one-year contract and speed demon outfielder Billy Hamilton to a one-year contract. Hamilton, once considered to be the next Ricky Henderson, has had struggles so far as a Major League outfielder, so perhaps a change of scenery will help his cause. After acquiring right-handed pitcher Chris Ellis from the Rangers, they brought back another speedy outfielder, Terrance Gore for another season, and also brought back former top-pick outfielder Bubba Starling on a minor-league contract. In January they settled arbitration with the following- left-handed pitcher Eric Skoglund, catcher Meibrys Viloria, infielders Hunter Dozier and Ryan O'Hearn, and right-handed pitchers Scott Barlow, Scott Blewett, Chris Ellis, Arnaldo Hernandez, Brad Keller, Kevin McCarthy, Sam McWilliams, and Jake Newberry. They also extended their top young talent, super-utility man Whitt Merrifield for four seasons. They made a slew of offers to pitchers in February, highlighted by right-hander Drew Storen, right-hander Homer Bailey, right-hander Brad Boxberger, and left-hander Jake Diekman. The Royals have a plan. It may not come to fruition anytime soon, but they do have a plan.
For 2016, the Royals will start their season at home against the same Mets that they took down in 2015. They will play eleven games at home in April, against The Mets, Twins, Tigers, and Orioles.
The Kansas City Royals had one of the best rosters in the league not too long ago and they rode that talented roster to an AL Pennant in 2014 and a World Series championship in 2015. As it stands in 2020, the Royals are now in the middle of a long rebuild.
In December, the Royals added left-handed pitcher Mike Montgomery, right-handed pitcher Jesse Hahn, and third baseman Maikel Franco on one-year contracts. They also added former St. Louis Cardinals standout closer, Trevor Rosenthal, on a minor league contract along with third baseman Humberto Arteaga and second baseman Erick Mejia on minor league contracts as well. They also traded infielder Cristian Perez to the Yankees for right-handed pitcher Chance Adams. In January they brought back veteran outfielder Alex Gordon for one more season and added former standout closer Greg Holland on a minor league contract. Most of the Royals best talent is at the lower levels, so it will be a couple of years before the fans start to see many of those young players begin to make their way to the Major League level.
