With Eric Hosmer headed to the San Diego Padres, there has been some speculation that the Kansas City Royals could try to bring back third baseman Mike Moustakas instead.

However, there is no real indication that’s going to happen, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney, who reported Sunday that the Royals have yet to make any real effort to retain Moustakas.

With few contenders in need of a third baseman, and those who do somewhat limited financially, there was some logic in thinking that Kansas City could try to hold on to the free agent.
