Sources: Broxton to #Royals on 1-year deal, pending physical. Creates options with Soria: Start him, trade him, keep him at closer. #MLB

Doesn't really make a lot of sense. If the Royals were going to trade Soria, why sign Broxton before unloading Soria and lower his value?

Or maybe the Royals are going all in?

Soria isn't going to start. It most likely allows Crow to return to the rotation. Likely in AAA.

This is what I was thinking. But in AAA...really? What do the Royals have to lose? He'll likely be better than the majority of the horse**** they've had on the bump every 5th day for quite a while.

I kind of like the way this Royals team is shaping up.

The Royals are two starting pitchers away from being really good. I know a lot of teams are two starting pitchers away from being really good, but the team KC puts on the field is dangerous.

They are indeed pretty close. The bullpen has some nice pieces in it. The offense is great and essentially set. They really do need a front line pitcher and a solid middle of the rotation guy though. The rumor is that they might flip some of their non MLB ready prospects to add to the rotation. I bet we hear further rumors connecting them to Jair, Gio, or even Shields. Hell, if the Cubs are thinking about moving Garza, he's another option.

Dayton Moore just told me that Broxton will set-up... Soria who is the closer. Aaron Crow will get opportunity to compete as a starter.
