KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Kansas City Royals are not in a selling mood ahead of next week's MLB trade deadline.
Royals general manager Dayton Moore says the team is all-in this year. Manager Ned Yost says despite any kind of rumors, the players are not discussing any possible trades.
"I haven't heard mention it, but I don't walk around and say, 'Hey, have you heard any new trade rumors?' I don't pay attention to it. Dayton and I talk all the time and there hasn't been a lot of conversation about it," Yost said prior to Wednesday night's game at Kauffman against the Baltimore Orioles.
The Royals entered Wednesday's game with a 46-51 record, putting them eight games behind the first place Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. Kansas City is even farther back in the wild card standings, where they sit nine games out of a playoff spot.
The league's non-waiver trade deadline is 3 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, July 31.
