I do not think the Kansas City Royals will escape the clutches of last place. They don't have the right mix of players on the team to get the job done in the AL Central.

Keep An Eye On: Mike Aviles, ss/2b

Aviles is a talented kid that will prosper and be a great player. Last year, he played 102 games. He batted .325, hit 10 home runs, and drove in 51 RBI.
