Is Dayton Moore really paying Kris Medlen $2Mill a year to be on the injury reserve list still recovering from Tommy John surgery that happen to him before he was a Royal?
I'm thinking about changing my name to Tommy John and making a career move so I can be on the Royals payroll too. Mr. Glass has no clue.
Kris Medlen's contract
2015 29 Kansas City Royals $2,000,000 5.137
2016 30 Kansas City Royals $5,500,000
2017 31 Kansas City Royals *$10,000,000 $10M Mutual Option, $1M Buyout
I don't like paying a player $2 million to recover from injury still, but if Medlan can regain his form from the Atlanta braves, the risk he took might look really good for 2016 considering the three $8 million dollar pitchers on the Royals staff who are horrible. Dayton still cannot do smart thing all the times and this is just a gambling trade that may or may not make him look good.
