Royals largely settled as spring training opener nears

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) For decades, the Kansas City Royals headed to spring training full of uncertainty.

They would hope their young first baseman would be ready for the big leagues. Or their next big pitching prospect would earn a spot in the rotation. Or some other longshot project would play so well that there was no way the front office could keep him off the club.

But after capturing the American League pennant last season, the Royals headed to Arizona this spring in a decidedly different place. The few holes created by free agency had been plugged, and the rest of the squad figures to look a lot like it did last year.
