So after a pretty quiet offseason, the Royals started to make a few moves. In the last week, the big move was trading longtime Royal Jarrod Dyson to Seattle for right-handed pitcher Nathan Karns.
As a fan, it's a tough move because Dyson has been in the organization so long and has had so many big moments as a Royal, but deep down, it makes some sense, as the Royals trade from surplus to fill a need.
We looked at where the Royals are now with Karns in the fold, how Dyson's production may be covered, and how the Royals may approach their pitching staff now with a (likely) set five-man rotation.
