6 months agoThe Kansas City Royals, who traded catcher Martin Maldonado to the Cubs on Monday, are in sell mode with the July 31 trade deadline approaching. According to a source, the focus will be on moving outfielder Billy Hamilton, reliever Jake Diekman, first baseman Lucas Duda and closer Ian Kennedy. Hamilton and Kennedy are the bigger names from a fantasy perspective. The change of scenery in KC hasn't helped Hamilton at all, but Kennedy has been a pleasant surprise with a 3.32 ERA, 14 saves, 46 strikeouts and only nine walks in 38 innings over 37 outings for the Royals this year. A move out of KC, however, would likely be the end of his fantasy value, as he'd be unlikely to serve as a closer for a contender. Diekman, a lefty, has struggled to a 4.97 ERA as a setup man. Kevin McCarthy and Wily Peralta could be in line for saves if one or both of Kennedy and Diekman are dealt within the next two weeks.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBaller
