It should not be a surprise that the Kansas City Royals could be one of the more active teams in free agency this offseason.

This offseason is expected to be a quiet one for a lot of teams. Due to revenue losses, virtually every team is making cuts to their front office and is looking to trim salary. Then there are the Kansas City Royals, who have stood out not only for their refusal to make any cuts, but in continuing to grow their front office and scouting department.

Given their continued commitment to the front office, it may not be that surprising if the Royals were active in free agency. According to Jon Morosi, that may be the case, as the team is actively looking to add to their pitching staff.

Matt Shoemaker is not the only player that the Royals have been linked to. They are considered to be actively pursuing Jackie Bradley Jr. as well, a player that seemingly fits the Royals way.

Over the years, the Royals had developed a reputation as a smaller market team, generally refusing to spend. However, with a new owner in John Sherman, that may not be the case any longer. There have been some indications that those days are over, especially as they have continued to add to the front office.

This offseason could provide plenty of opportunities for those few teams willing to spend. Free agents could be signed at a relative discount, allowing those teams to reap the benefits for years to come. It would be a bit of a gamble, especially as there are no guarantees that fans will be back for the start of the 2021 season.

For the Royals, this could be a chance to accelerate the rebuild. Even if the players they sign are on one year deals, there is a chance that they can make trades at the deadline, adding more prospects to their farm system. This could be a win-win situation.
