What the Royals Need To Do Right Now to Turn Things Around
Brandon Moss Needs to Get Hits
Most of you will think I will say something about Eric Hosmer first, and I won’t. I will say something about Brandon Moss, however. The KC Royals designated hitter isn’t getting any of the attention the other players are getting for some reason, and he is struggling the most.
Moss is batting .125 for the year and slid down to the 8th spot in the lineup, which is not where a DH is supposed to be. His 22 strikeouts lead the team and his slugging percentage is tied with Drew Butera’s, who is a backup.
Moss is providing little to no production at all and the KC Royals are stuck paying him $12 million over the next two seasons. Simply put, he needs to start getting hits or he will be the biggest bust since Omar Infante.
Jorge Soler Needs to Get Healthy, Fast
Soler is off to a great start in his rehab stint, blasting his second homer today in AAA.
The KC Royals could desperately use his bat to try and compensate for the lack of offensive production so far, especially with the corner outfielders. Since being traded for Wade Davis, Royals fans haven’t seen him perform in the Majors yet and once he is in the everyday lineup it could really impact the batting order.
