Winter Meetings 2011: Ryan Theriot Mentioned As Option For Kansas City Royals

The St. Louis Cardinals are experiencing all kinds of losses, although the potential loss of Ryan Theriot may resonate on a slightly lower level than some others. The team has decided not to tender the infielder, and the Kansas City Royals are being mentioned as a possible landing spot for Theriot by Jon Heyman.

Kansas City has already been linked to a few veteran utility players, so if Theriot is available, then that’s a logical guess. That said, there are also several others linked to him by Heyman including the Braves, Reds, Astros and Blue Jays. The Royals have also kicked the tires on Carlos Guillen and Edgar Renteria, so it’s clear that while Theriot has options, the Royals do as well.

The Royals are in the market for such a player because their infield is so young with Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer, Johnny Giavotella and Alcides Escobar as the starters. Adding a player like Theriot would help on several levels.
