So now that the Royals have signed Alex Gordon, it’s time to add a starting pitcher.

This week, we looked at the names still out on the market, the best fits for the Royals, and the guys we want the Royals to take a chance on including likely targets such as Yovani Gallardo and Ian Kennedy, and pitchers who may be looking to re-establish some value, such as Tim Lincecum, Mat Latos, Doug Fister, or even veteran Mark Buehrle (if he wants to play this season).
