Grandal to the Royals

New, 19 comments

Multiple sources report this morning that the Royals have reached a pre-draft agreement with Miami catcher Yasmani Grandal.

I think this makes a lot of sense for the Royals, given the need for a catcher to replace Methuselah Kendall in the next year or two. Grandal is very advanced defensively and has shown strong offensive skills this year. It makes it more likely that Wil Myers will move off catcher though.

It will also have big ripple effects in the draft. I will work on a new Mock tomorrow reflecting last minute rumors.
