Somewhere, Dayton Moore is praying that the Orioles take Reggie Sanders off his hands. Sanders, now 39, was signed in December of 2005 for two years and $10 million. He’s one of a handful of Allard Baird mistakes still residing on the Royals’ roster.
I imagine Moore has struggled to find a team willing to take Sanders and most of the $5MM he’s owed. What team would want to do that?
Enter the Orioles. Baltimore wants a right-handed bat and the Royals just want a reliever with his arm attached. The two sides are talking, so maybe Moore can unload Sanders before the season begins. Bob Dutton adds that the sticking point is how much of Sanders’s salary the Royals would consume.
