Not much movement when it comes to the Kansas City Royals free agents.  So what is the latest?  Well the one guy that has moved on is Mike Minor who signed a deal with the Texas Rangers.  The Winter Meetings were this last week in Florida and it was still quite.  What is the latest on Hosmer which would be the biggest prize out of Kansas City?  The talk about Eric Hosmer and San Diego heated up big time last week but that has calmed down.  The Red Sox are still a player for Hosmer and could be where he ends up once they decide on making a move on J.D. Martinez or not.  But by the sounds of it Boston has made up it's mind at first.  Update:  Red Sox signed Mitch Moreland to remain in Boston at first base.

Or could Hosmer end up back with the Royals?:

This week might be active as it will quite down around Christmas so look for some moving and shaking in the next couple of days.

So what about Moose?  He set the Royals franchise record in home runs in a season this year but it has been slow so far.  It looked like a return to Los Angeles was in the cards for Moose as it looks like he home town team the Angels might be interested but a move they made this week with Zack Cozart a shortstop with the Reds who will play third base for the Angels.

So now what about Lorenzo Cain?  There appears to be some buzz with Lorenzo Cain but much of the buzz comes out of Toronto.

Not much out there on Jason Vargas or Alcides Escobar.  Which could be in play for a Kansas City return.

Whit Merrifield currently under contract of the Royals has been drawing interest for a possible trade:

Danny Duffy has been mentioned as well in regards to several teams:

Danny let it be known on Twitter this week he would like to maintain being a Royal:

Kelvin Herrera is drawing some interest as well.  Could this be the end of any of the HDH members?
