MLB Trade Rumor: Luis Valbuena To The Kansas City Royals

After losing Mike Moustakas to a season-ending injury, the Royals are in desperate need of a third baseman. As of right now, Cheslor Cuthbert is their only viable option, but he isn’t cutting it. Cuthbert is batting .277, with two home runs, six RBIs, nine runs, and a .294 OBP in 85 plate appearances. His numbers aren’t terrible, but the Royals are going to need more production at third base if they want to retain their lead in the American League Central.

There are multiple potential third base options that will be discussed near the trade deadline, but Luis Valbuena could be a very good option for the Kansas City Royals. As of right now Valbuena is the starting third baseman for the Houston Astros, but their top prospect, Alex Bregman, is making a very good case in the Minor Leagues that he is ready for the bigs. If the Astros decide to promote Bregman, Valbuena could find his way on the trade block immediately.
