Kansas City Royals All-Time Roster


Kansas City Royals Logo

This is our Kansas City Royals All-Time 25-man roster based on the best individual seasons by position. Each player is only eligible for one position and one year. For a player to be eligible at a position they had to have played at least 51% of games in a given season at the position. Additionally, we choose three outfielders regardless of specific position. Any hitter is eligible for the designated hitter position, not just those who actually played as a designated hitter. The bullpen will consist of one starter for long relief and five players who made at least 80% of appearances in relief.
