Unfortunately the injuries cost him
I could still see him starting provided he did the work in this offseason
He has talent and tools
One scenario is to let him be HC for one year and evaluate the progress and if enough progress is not seen hire a new coach next year. This can also provide greater number of candidates next year as it will be difficult to hire a new coach now, Spring practices are already underway.
This could imply that Jones does not have enough confidence in current QBs on the roster.
The Royals completed a three-team trade with the Red Sox and Mets acquiring Benintendi from Boston while sending Franchy Cordero and two players to be named to Boston. Khalil Lee is going to the Mets, while New York is sending two players to the Red Sox. Lee was the Royals’ No. 8 prospect per MLB Pipeline.
