What's Next For The Royals?

MLB.com's Dick Kaegel notes that the Royals have closer Joakim Soria and outfielder David DeJesus under contract multiple years into the future.  Is anything cooking with other young Royals?

  • The Royals didn't seek Soria out to sign him.  Instead, he was "very aggressive" and approached the team, according to Dayton Moore.  And Allard Baird signed DeJesus.
  • Kaegel spoke to Alex Gordon and Brian Bannister, and learned that nothing is in the works.  Bannister wondered whether his age (27) could be a factor.
  • Kaegel didn't talk to Zack Greinke or John Buck, but Bob Dutton did a week ago.  Neither has been approached to talk extension.  Greinke said he didn't know what he was worth, while Buck admitted he'd welcome talks.  No word on Billy Butler or Mark Teahen.
  • Craig Brown of Royals Authority offers his predictions on contenders for long-term deals.
