The Kansas City Royals really overpaid in signing Ian Kennedy.
The Kansas City Royals knew in 2015 that their starting rotation wasn't their strong suit, but it didn't stop KC from taking home the World Series title. They'll enter 2016 without a true ace again.
Kris Medlen continued his path back to being a big-league starter when he took the mound in several key relief situations for the Kansas City Royals last season. KC needs him even more in 2016.
Danny Duffy showed a lot of promise as a reliever in 2015, but the Kansas City Royals can get the most possible value out of him if he starts games in 2016.
