The Kansas City Royals have been uncharacteristically active this offseason.
Rumors have circled around the team, and many eyes have been focused on what Kansas City would do on the heels of a winning season. Seeking the opportunity to capitalize and improve, general manager Dayton Moore set his sights on being involved in a big way.
The Royals have reportedly been actively talking to various free agents to fill multiple needs on their club.
They have shown interest in players that could provide an impact bat or a strong arm to the roster but ultimately did not sign those players for various reasons.
Along the way, they have signed a few players, watched a few depart, ventured into the trade waters and attempted to find another diamond in the rough for the mound.
Five of those moves had immediate impact on the major-league roster. Here is the report card for the Royals' moves thus far this offseason.
