"Kansas City is a very good organization, and I hope and I think that the reason why we got him is because they really had a need for Danny Valencia," Showalter said. Danny will fit them well. … He was somebody who really impressed me last year. But I saw him short. Nobody knows him like the Kansas City Royals. Everybody has dents in their armor. Sometimes, they don't reveal themselves for a while, so before you start patting yourself on the back, they got a good player who is going to help them in Danny. It's going to be hard to match Danny's production against left-handed pitching.
