SURPRISE, Ariz. — Royals manager Ned Yost made the distinction a few days ago in his office. They didn’t just want to revamp their bullpen options from last season, it went beyond that. They had to make changes to that unit after a 104-loss season. Those changes have kept coming into February.

Internal options weren’t nearly going to suffice for the Royals this offseason, and they’ve continued to add players with experience and who’ve had success pitching at the back end of games.

First they added former All-Star closer Brad Boxberger about 10 days ago. Then they picked up left-handed reliever Jake Diekman. Friday, Drew Storen joined the bullpen brigade as the Royals continue their efforts to transform a unit that was undoubtedly a weakness in 2018.
