The Royals are finally giving us what we want. A younger 25-man roster highlighted not with washed up veteran reclamation projects that may or may not work out, but our own homegrown and developed players. Guys we’ve watched come through the minor league system. Guys we cheered for since their draft day. Guys who should be getting the at bats and innings and learning how to adjust at the highest level anyway. Finally they are getting that chance.
Jake Diekman was traded to the Oakland A’s for OF Dairon Blanco and RHP Ismael Aquino.
