Kendrys Morales agrees to two-year, $17 million deal with Royals
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/11/14) Free agent Kendrys Morales has agreed to a contract with the Royals, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Morales is getting a two-year, $17 million deal, which could increase to $18.5 million due to incentives.
The 31-year-old Morales hit .218 with eight home runs, 20 doubles and 42 RBI in 98 games between the Twins and Mariners in 2014. He is a career .271 hitter with a .460 slugging percentage and .784 OPS in 718 games.
Morales has a .281 average, .509 slugging percentage, .825 OPS, three home runs, four doubles and seven RBI in 15 career games at Kauffman Stadium.
Report: Kendrys Morales seeking 'multiple years, substantial dollars'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/8/14) According to ESPN.com baseball writer Jerry Crasnick, free agent DH/first baseman Kendrys Morales might be on the market "for a while" again this winter unless his contract expectations change. His agent, Scott Boras, is seeking "multiple years and substantial dollars" for the 31-year-old veteran, an American League source told Crasnick.
Morales hit .218/.274/.338 with eight home runs and 42 RBI in 367 at-bats between the Twins and Mariners last season.
Indians, Royals, Rangers have interest in Kendrys Morales
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/30/14) The Indians, Royals and Rangers are taking a look at free-agent first baseman/designated hitter Kendrys Morales, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.
The Mariners and Blue Jays are also possibilities for Morales, who hit .218/.274/.338 with eight home runs and 42 RBI in 367 at-bats between the Twins and Mariners last season. The Royals are on the hunt for some to fill the role vacated by Billy Butler, who signed with the A's earlier in November.
Report: Indians expressing interest in Kendrys Morales
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(11/26/14) The Indians have expressed inerest in DH/first baseman Kendrys Morales.
Morales, who split time between the Twins and Mariners last season, hit .218 with 42 RBI.
|2014 summary: Kendrys Morales' 2014 serves as a cautionary tale for any free agent who waits until midseason to sign a potentially bigger deal once a compensatory pick is no longer attached to him. Morales did that, skipping spring training and the first two-plus months players typically use to get into midseason form, and stunk, going from slugging like Todd Frazier to slugging like Justin Smoak. Even a midseason trade to his old stomping grounds in Seattle couldn't salvage him.|
Playing time status: Despite the poor performance, Morales' stock evidently didn't fall too much in baseball circles because he signed a two-year deal to replace Billy Butler as the Royals' full-time DH this offseason. Their faith in him only reinforces the narrative that his conditioning just wasn't up to par with other players by the time he signed last offseason.
2015 outlook: After recovering from a gruesome leg injury that cost him nearly two seasons, Morales had established himself as a consistent 20-to-25-homer guy prior to last year, though that's really his only trick as a player with poor plate discipline. It's reasonable to think he could get back to that after a normal offseason and spring training, but of course, it's no certainty. Given his limited ceiling, he might go undrafted in Head-to-Head points leagues, though he's at least a late-rounder in Rotisserie because of his power potential.
