Billy Butler is unlikely to to return to the Royals next season.

Butler was incredibly disappointing this season hitting a career low .271 with 57 runs, nine home runs and 66 RBI for the Royals this season. Butler will likely be a cheap free-agent signing for a club looking for a right handed hitter off the bench.

Royals have some interest in re-signing Norichika Aoki.

Aoki was acquired this past off-season from the Brewers and hit .285 with 63 runs, one home run, 43 RBI and 17 stolen bases for the Royals. Aoki would likely be a cheap signing for the Royals who typically have one of the lower payrolls in baseball.

Omar Infante went 1-for-2 with an RBI in the Royals 3-2 loss to the Giants in Game 7 of the World Series.

Infante had a great postseason for Kansas City. In the regular season, Infante hit .252 with six home runs, 66 RBIs, and nine stolen bases. Infante will be a late-round draft pick at best in 2015 drafts.

Alex Gordon went 2-for-3 with one RBI and one run scored in the Royals 3-2 loss to the Giants in Game 7 of the World Series.

One of Gordon's hits turned into quite a crazy play. After a single to the left center gap, the ball scooted past the center fielder and Gordon raced onwards. The left fielder than struggled to pick up the ball allowing Gordon to get to third. The next batter popped up and thus ended the Royals' season. Gordon had an extremely successful regular season, and postseason.

Jeremy Guthrie allowed three runs on four hits while walking none and striking out three over 3.1 innings in the Royals 3-2 loss to the Giants in Game 7 of the World Series.

Guthrie wasn't extremely effective in the game as he only lasted 3.1 innings. The Royals couldn't plate that tying run, and that ultimately ended their season. The Royals had a much better season than they ever could have expected.

Eric Hosmer went 2-for5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in the Royals' 10-0 win over the Giants on Tuesday night.

Hosmer has looked like a new man in the postseason. According to a report earlier this fall, Hosmer changed his hand position during his load, allowing him to catch up to fastballs more easily. These types of anecdotes usually carry minimal water, but if it's any consolation, scouts have noted the issue dating back to his disastrous 2012. This could be the type of postseason a great career congeals around. But maybe it's not. He'll be a divisive player on draft day.

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-3 with two walks, a run scored and three RBI in the Royals' 10-0 win over the Giants during Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

Cain had filled the three-hole nicely this postseason, and Tuesday he showed excellent discipline at the dish, drawing two walks. He's emerged as one of KC's best all-around players, playing spectacular defense and hitting for a high-average. His fantasy upside is limited due to his power limitations, but he should contribute in steals and average.

Mike Moustakas went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two runs score and two RBI in the Royals' 10-0 win over the Giants during Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

Moose has been a revelation this postseason, looking like the player that was selected 2nd overall in the 2007 draft and billed as one of his generation's most talented power hitters. Both he and his friend/teammate Eric Hosmer have looked like superstars this postseason, but be weary of the draft day helium they'll get.

Yordano Ventura allowed no runs on three hits while striking out four and walking five over seven innings in the Royals' 10-0 win over the Giants during Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

Ventura didn't have a ton of control, as evidenced by the five walks against four strikeouts, but he was nonetheless effective. He walked the bases loaded in the third inning, but wiggled his way out of trouble by inducing a ground out double-play from Buster Posey. He dedicated the victory to his close friend and recently departed, Oscar Taveras. Ventura should be a hot commodity on draft day next spring.
