MLB Winter Meetings Trade Rumors: Jeff Francouer Reportedly A Royals Possibility; Phillies, Too

Will McDonald of Royals Review has said a number of times that Jeff Francouer would be a Kansas City Royal in no time. That's of course a nod to GM Dayton Moore to bring in guys to which he has a connection and Francouer, the former Atlanta Brave, fits the bill.

According to Peter Gammons, Francouer is a possibility for Kansas City. Gammons reports he is a possibility for the Royals, Philadeliphia Phillies, Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians. Ken Rosenthal adds the Colorado Rockies to that list and notes the most playing time would come in KC.

There were some rumors that the Royals were interested in Francouer during the MLB trade deadline last summer but ultimately nothing came to fruition.
