In the midst of a playoff chase for the first time in 29 years, the Kansas City Royals could use all the help they can get. With rosters expanding in a couple of weeks, the Royals find themselves having several players that could make a positive impact upon that push to Blue October.

Are all of these players going to help the Royals win games down the stretch? Perhaps they will, but they may not either. September baseball is a different game than what was played over the previous five months. While some teams are still geared up, trying to win as many games as possible, other teams find themselves looking for players that could make an impact for next year.

The Royals have the chance to take advantage of this, even with their own September callups. Each one of these players has experienced success at the minor league level this year, and may be able to bring that up to the majors. Even if that minor league success results in only one base hit, that could still make a difference, helping propel the Royals to the postseason.

The Royals will be playing meaningful games in September. These five players could play a part as well.
