One of the hottest teams in baseball is adding a little more fuel to the fire.
The Royals have completed a trade with the Reds for ace Johnny Cueto.
Yordano Ventura was a phenom for the Royals last season, lighting up radar guns and starring in October at age 23.
The major league rumor mill is cranking at full capacity, and that will continue until the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline is in the rear-view mirror.
Game 8 of the World Series also went to Madison Bumgarner. Kinda.
Programming note: Royals-A’s coverage starts tonight at 12:30 p.m. on CSN California with A’s Pregame Live.
