If I had to guess right now, I would say that Saunders gets the nod at right field. I feel like Soler is going to be the teams designated hitter (I do not believe Yost when he says the DH position will be a rotated position. He has said that for years and it has yet to happen) and Orlando seems like the perfect fourth outfielder. Collins could be a guy they stash in Omaha to see if he can consistently hit.
It is a very real possibility that Merrifield is the right fielder come Opening Day. I just believe they will wait to start Mondesi’s service time when the rest of the young core is ready, or close to ready, to make the jump.
So what do you think Royals fans? Do you have an idea of who will be the right fielder during Bonifacio’s suspension? Let us know below!
