In their first Split-Squad outing this month, the Royals beat the Cubs 3-2, but fell to the A's 4-6.
Today they play the Rockies.

The way the Cactus League is set-up, no team has to travel more than 30 minutes to an 'away' game. For some teams, 'traveling' is a walk across the street. For others, it's a walk from the third base dugout to the first base dugout. Gotta love Spring Training.

Royals spring tickets are sold out.

Not a good outing for the Royals. Wednesday lost to the Rangers 6-2. Yesterday got skewered by the Rangers 10-0. But, that's what Spring Training is all about - working their way through the Basics.
Royals Home Spring Training games are Sold Out. After market outlets going fast.

It's Infante vs Colon for the starter at Second Base. Infante is still the favorite, but Colon really made his presence known during the pennant race and the Series. Some reporters even touted him as a 'Hero' of the Series. Colon has not held back in his desire to start at second.

There are still two rotation spots to fill on the mound, and more than enough talent to give coaches and front office a couple of sleepless nights.

Royals having try-outs for two positions over the next few days.
The mound will be busy looking for a new #5 hurler. Cueto took his free agency and left the locker room. Trying to fill that spot will be Chris Young, Danny Duffy, and Kris Medlan. All three have the arm and aim to be impressive.

Next the Royals will be looking for someone to cover the turf in right field. Two of the strongest are Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando.

Luxury bus trips to 3 Royals games are being advertised. The away games on the schedule are Mets, Phillies, and Red Sox. Former Royals join the trip, current Royals signing baseballs for tour participants, and a few surprises for the fans along the way.
Single ticket prices are different for each game, but they range from $1150 - $1500.

Royals sign 3 pitchers and an infielder. All have experience in The Show. Two of the pitchers and the infielder report to the Farm system. One of the pitchers was released from the Atlanta Braves, LHP Mike Minor. The Royals got him for a $7.25 million dollar 2-year contract. He's Guaranteed the 7.25 for the 2 years.
The signs sent to the minors have been invited to Royals Spring Training.

Spring training games drew record attendance last year. This year to keep the numbers growing many teams are offering fan incentives for attending games. These incentives are different from what is usually offered during the regular season.

The Royals Minor League teams will be having their home games at Surprise along with the Rangers Minor League teams. So Surprise will be home field for the Royals farm teams: Storm Chasers, Naturals, Legends, and the Blue Rocks. It will definitely be a busy field.

Pitchers and catchers should be showing up this week. Neither position is a front office concern.
However, the podcast chatter is about finding some strong and fast players for second and third base.
Royals front office called up just about any players of notice from their farm system. A couple of Single-A players showed up to try protecting the bases.

Afternoon temps in Surprise this week will be in the mid to upper 80's. The only moisture hitting the ground will be sweat.

Royals continue their streak of avoiding arbitration: Moustakas agrees to a 2-year $14.4 million dollar deal.

Royals fans will get to see the teams Minor League hot prospects during the second half of the season. A few already got a taste of 'The Show' during play-offs and World Series.

Royals and Rangers share Surprise Stadium. They play each other 3 times during Spring Training.

Royals Opening day at Kaufmann is 4/3 vs. Mets.
