The Royals have non-tendered Chris Getz, making him a free agent. The reign of terror appears to be over.
Emilio Bonafacio was tendered a contract, and Christian Colon appears to be poised to step into at least a utility infielder role. Add into that, the Johnny Giavotella mystery, and it looks like Ned is out of ways to bring Getz back to the K.
This immediately raises the Royals team batting average and on-base percentage, because they could sign almost anyone (including me) who could bat better than .222 and have an OBP of .289
