In this article of Who’s hot and who’s not, we look at some KC Royals players who have not been very good this season and cost the Royals some games this year.
If you are new to this series and missed part one I will give a small synopsis. So far this season, the KC Royals have kept pace with their 23 to 24 games won projections, but some players have shot out the gates on fire and have a chance to turn the Royals seasons around.
This time instead of going over who is hot on the Royals, let’s look at who is not as hot. For these players, they have either not regained their former selves, have just started the season in a slump, or are rookies just trying to establish themselves in the major leagues.
For this article, I will not include position players who have not been up in the Majors or injured for a part of the whole season as they will not have as big of sample sizes. This means I will not have Ryan O’Hearn or Bubba Starling as they have not played even close to every day.
I will include relievers as long as they have appeared in at least over half the games this season. With all of these rules set, let’s look at who has not gotten off to the greatest starts on the KC Royals this season.
