Keon Broxton and Brett Phillips, two other outfielders known for defense, could also be trading commodities.

"Oh, there will be more", said with a smile.

The Kansas City Royals were reluctant to allow the club's star players to test the free agent market this offseason, with virtually a slim chance to bring back those core players for the 2018 season and beyond. Right-hander Jimmy Nelson is expected to miss the start of the season because of a shoulder injury.
