Kliff has done a masterful job of keeping tabs on the Houston Astros, who traded for the former Kansas City Royals shortstop.
Kingsbury has been the subject of trade speculation for the last couple of weeks.
His name is often mentioned in trade rumors that could lead to a deal for the Astros, but the Royals haven’t been interested in him, and he hasn’t been able to reach a long-term deal.
The Royals, however, have interest in other players.
Kliff Kingsborough is set to become a free agent after this season.
Kingsborough’s name has been mentioned in several trade rumors, including a possible move to the Cleveland Indians.
He has a $7 million buyout in his contract.
The Houston Astros have said they’re open to acquiring him.
Kingsfield’s agent, Mike Ditka, told ESPN that he expects Kingsbury to return to Kansas City.
Ditka said that Kingsbury, who is owed $7.7 million this season, wants to return.
“I don’t know what the plan is,” Ditkas said.
“I think he wants to be here.
I think it’s something he’s looking at, and it’s an option we’ll be looking at.”
Ditk said Kingsbury has not discussed his future with his agent, though he did say that Kingsborough doesn’t want to sign with another team.
“He’s an intelligent player,” Ditskas added.
“He understands his value.
I don’t think there’s a plan that has to be made.
I know he wants this.
I’m not going to talk about that.
If he wants it, he’ll do whatever he needs to do to be able to do it.”
The Astros have made several trades in recent weeks, including acquiring left-hander Brett Anderson, right-hander Chris Capuano, outfielder Alex Bregman and catcher Jose Altuve from the Kansas City Chiefs.
