Royals have potential trade chips in bullpen

It’s a good bet the new contract that lefty reliever Joe Smith signed with the Angels brought smiles to Royals officials — and not just because it gets him away from division-opponent Cleveland. Smith, 29, reached a three-year deal worth $15.75 million. If that’s the price of non-closer bullpen arms on this winter’s market, then the Royals, with their stocked reliever corps, possess some nice potential trade chips.
