While he says that either starting pitcher Luke Hochevar or outfielder
Jeff Francoeur could be traded this offseason, Bob Dutton of The Kansas City Star
doesn’t believe the Kansas City Royals will simply dump either player.
Understand many want @royals to dump Hochevar and Francoeur for whatever available. Either could be traded. Don't see either being dumped.
