Jeffery Flanagan of MLB.com reported the news on Friday that former Baltimore Orioles infielder Steve Tolleson, 32, has signed a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals. Tolleson was playing baseball for the Norfolk Tides which is the AAA minor league team of the Baltimore Orioles when he was released on May 23, 2016 after his batting average of .100 was one of the reasons the Orioles released him. Due to the knee injury to Royals infielder Mike Moustakas that will sideline him for the remainder of the current baseball season, the Royals will welcome the services of Tolleson since he can play three out of the four infield positions except first base and the corner outfielder positions for the defending World Series champions in 2016. Tolleson will be playing baseball for the Omaha Storm Chasers which is the Royals AAA minor league team this year until he will be needed by the Royals later this year.

I didn't know Moustakas was done for the season. KC is done. No third straight trip to the World Series and doubtful even playoffs.

The funny thing was that the sports media was saying after the 2015 World Series the Royals were going to be a dynasty due to their farm system.
