Kansas City Royals Trade Rumors: Dayton Moore Says Royals Aren't Close To Making A Deal

There have been a number of blockbuster deals already consummated in Major League Baseball in the past week, with Hanley Ramirez going from the Miami Marlins to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and former Royals Cy Young winner Zack Greinke going from the Brewers to the Angels.

Plenty of rumors have surrounded the Royals, and notably closer Jonathan Broxton, but according to KC general manager Dayton Moore, no trades are imminent.

General manager Dayton Moore said "it's business as usual" with conversations with a lot of teams.

"Our focus hasn't changed," he said. "We want to do everything in our power to give our team an opportunity to win, not only today but into the future, so anything that we do would be predicated on building and adding to this current group of young, talented players."

Jeff Francoeur, Jose Mijares, and Yuniesky Betancourt have also surfaced in rumors, in addition to Broxton. It's believed that Broxton, a former All-Star closer with the Dodgers, will bring in the most in a trade.
