Report: Royals shying away from Alex Rios
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Despite rumors otherwise, the offensively challenged Royals have decided that Rangers outfielder Alex Rios is not a good fit financially, according to ESPN.

"They can't take on a lot of money for anything," one source noted.

If that's true, Kansas City might not seek to land a bat until August, after the trading deadline, when the cost is lowered by a lack of salary commitments.

The Royals might have also been encouraged by the torrid series against Cleveland just completed by designated hitter Billy Butler and the continued production of Lorenzo Cain.

Chris Denorfia placed on trading block by San Diego
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Sources have told mlbdailydish.com that the Padres are seeking to trade outfielder Chris Denorfia "sooner rather than later." Among the interested teams are the Giants, Mariners, Blue Jays and Royals.

Denorfia owns a stat line of .244/.295/.321 and is a free agent after this season. He would likely be a two-month rental for any team that trades for him.
