A star has been salvaged in Kansas City for the first time this offseason.
The free agency that lost the Royals top hitters like Eric Hosmer comes to a tentative close for Kansas City.
The Royals have reportedly agreed to terms with Mike Moustakas after reopening communication with him on Thursday.
Mike Moustakas has agreed to a one-year deal with a mutual second-year option with the Kansas City Royals, sources with knowledge of the deal tell Yahoo Sports. It guarantees him $6.5 million and can max out at $22.7 million.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) March 9, 2018
The slugger is in the middle of his prime in a career that has spanned seven years, all in Kansas City.
Now he will call the city home for yet another year after agreeing to a one-year deal with the club. He won't be enough to keep the Royals' playoff hopes alive all on his own.
They will need more out of their current players and new additions to find much success in 2018.
2018 isn't lost yet for the Royals. They have the potential to shock the MLB with a scrappy team that can produce runs similar to that in their championship season a few years ago.
It's all speculation until the season officially kicks off, but the Royals made a sneaky good move by taking advantage of a bad market for Moustakas.
