That could actually be significant. Could mean they want to call up Pena, but needed another catcher

Odd that KC has been selling off minor league pieces all summer then picks up these two.  They released Jesus Flores so Eric Kratz might be backup.  Hendriks - he can only be innings eater for Omaha because he's just not good.  Hope Royals don't think he is a bullpen lefty.

Don't be mistaken, he is very good at AAA. He started the AAA all-star game a few weeks ago and was player of the game.

Chris Cotillo said on twitter that Kratz is being added to the KC roster, so Hayes is out. Nothing to do with Pena.

#Royals acquire C Erik Kratz and RHP Liam Hendriks in a trade with Toronto for 3B Danny Valencia.

Valencia. Why? I guess the platoon is over. They are starting Moose no matter what. How damn stubborn can they get?

Kratz is either going to Omaha or the Royals. So it might mean Pena is coming up.

As for Hendriks I have kind of wanted him for awhile. IDK how good he will be or why I wanted him, but the Royals know what they are doing with pitchers. Perhaps they think Hendriks is depth(for this year and next year), or see something with him that they have been following. Also his walk rate dropped this year as well to below .60.

Not a glamorous player by any means, but worth stashing on your AAA team. The Royals might also be trying to sneak him through waivers. Honestly who knows what they are doing...

Odd time to make this kind of move, but it was probably going to happen at some point.

I know Valencia is nothing special, but he's worth more than those two worthless players. This either means the platoon at third base is over, or Colon will take over Valencia's side of that.

I am actually ok with the trade. Valencia was not doing much for us, and we basically turned David Lough into a quality prospect pitcher (NOT developed by our sorry ass farm system), and a backup catcher.

I am cool with Colon taking over. It gives the Royals more depth up the middle.

So, Moose gets up to almost .200 and the Royals just decide that they have to keep that guy in the lineup at all times!   Wow.

I'm OK with losing Valencia for the same reason, but I'm not sure I like the idea of helping a team that we are chasing for a playoff spot unless it also helps us.  I don't see this as anything more than shuffling of bench pieces - and Ned doesn't use bench pieces.

shuffling deck chairs on the titanic.... and you give a team you're competing (so they tell us( with for a wild card spot a decent bat off the bench. sounds like DM to me.... maybe he trying to save 50 grand to complete a another trade.... shoot me.
