Royals - Acquired Nothing
Kansas City Royals - Acquired Nothing from the Seattle Mariners for P Daniel Cortes, P Derrick Saito, and the right to not have IF Yuniesky Betancourt on the team.
The Royals clearly overpaid here. 28 other teams have also acquired the rights to not have Yuniesky Betancourt play for the teams and none of them had to give up any prospects. Betancourt will continue to not field or not hit for the Royals and push the team into having a de facto 24-man roster. If the Royals wanted to continue to recall positive aspects of the 80s, a process they started with the return of powder blue in the alternate jerseys, they should’ve signed Kurt Stillwell, who is probably a better player right now.
Derrick Saito’s the throw-in here, a future organizational player that’ll spend a lot of time in AA ball in 9-1 routs. Cortes is the prospect and while his stock has fallen considerably recently, he’s still got the big fastball and hasn’t yet failed after a move to reliever, a crucial element to calling a hard-throwing prospect toasted.
