Kansas City Royals
Last year 87 wins, this year 95 wins.
The new players, via FA Kevin Anderson, via Trade Xavier Russell, Martin Cook, via Call up Geraldo Machado Javier Mantalban and improvement to SP's Pedro Coronado, Johnnie Donovan who both got long term contracts. This team is here to stay and win for 3-5 years. Good luck AL South it will be another tough season for us all.
This should be the team for the next 3 seasons as contracts are set so hopefully this is the correct mix. Good Luck AL South it will be another tough year.
Tampa Bay Rays
Key Player Added: Odalis Andujar, SS (2 years, 2.8mil per year)
Key Player Lost: Abraham House, CF (FA - Unsigned)
Key Transactions: None
Outlook: The Rays finished with 108 wins last season and were then swept in the ALCS by a tough Seattle team. Instead of blowing up the roster, the Rays decided to let other teams make moves around them and see how they can stand up with their roster. The core of the roster is locked in for the next few seasons, so Tampa is hoping to wrap up a couple of titles. Will that happen? Just have to wait and find out now.
