MLB Rumors: KC Royals Linked to Seattle Mariners Outfielder

The Seattle Mariners have a crowded outfield, so they are reportedly shopping former top prospect Jarred Kelenic because of it. A market is starting to form for the young outfielder, as the Kansas City Royals are making a big push to acquire him.

It makes sense that a rebuilding team like the Royals have Kelenic on their radar. After all, there is still reason to believe that he could blossom into an effective power hitter at the major-league level. A change of scenery may be exactly what helps him move on from his struggles so far in the majors. Furthermore, the Mariners are in win-now mode, so it makes sense that they are willing to trade him if it results in them landing a bigger talent elsewhere.

We will need to wait and see if the Royals end up being the team to acquire the Wisconsin native from here. Time will tell if it does in fact come to fruition from here.
