I really want to see the Royals trade somebody to Milwaukee.

And.

Also.

The Royals are reportedly interested in Mariners 1B Ryon Healy.

He has shown good power in his brief career, smacking 25 home runs last year with Oakland, but he also has the sixth-lowest walk rate in the past three seasons for all players with at least 1,000 plate appearances. His 3.8% rate puts him around Royals free-swingers like Alcides Escobar and Salvador Perez.
