Since Justin Maxwell joined the Royals at the deadline, he's appeared in five games and made nine plate appearances.
In those nine appearances, according to ESPN, Maxwell's batting average rose 12 points, from .241 to .253. It even reached .259 before he went 0-for-3 on Tuesday against the Twins.
Since Jeff Francoeur joined the San Francisco Giants following his designation for assignment by the Royals, Kansas City has been looking for some stability at right field.
They've tried a lot of different options, including starting David Lough there as well as moving Lorenzo Cain to right and starting Jarrod Dyson at center field.
While Lough and Dyson are certainly quality players that deserve to be on the 25-man roster, Maxwell has the most talent, and it would be a great move to put Maxwell at right field and keep Cain at center field.
