10:28pm: Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star adds Russ Springer to the mix for the Royals. They’d have to find room in the payroll before signing a veteran reliever.
5:32pm: According to MLB.com’s Dick Kaegel, the Royals will hear from the agent for Brandon Lyon, Kyle Farnsworth, and Craig Counsell this week. Lyon and Farnsworth make sense, as the Royals are known to be looking for righthanded relief help. They’ve been linked to The Farnz before. And there was recent word they might look at veteran infielders to replace Mark Grudzielanek.
