Every team likes options. The Kansas City Royals have options at a position they have not had to worry about for six years. Now it is just a matter of who wants it more.
The Kansas City Royals find themselves in an interesting situation. Eric Hosmer has held down the position for years, so it really did not matter who was in the minors. Now that Hosmer is in San Diego that mindset has changed.
As of right now, no player is definitely better than the next. Some have more MLB experience, but with the minor league guys, we still do not know how they will do against big league pitching. One situation the Royals have is that hardly any of the options at first base are being kept at first base. Two candidates have stayed at first during their career.
So let’s break down the options the Royals currently have. Maybe we can figure out the best option the Royals have for this year and beyond. Maybe the next Royals superstar is hidden in the mix.
