The Royals have remained in contact with free agent outfielder Torii Hunter.

Hunter will not return to the Tigers in 2015 and thus is looking for a new team. With Billy Butler out of the picture the Royals could consider Hunter at designated hitter.

Hunter had a strong stint with the Tigers hitting .295/.327/.456 with 34 homers and 167 RBI over two seasons.

It is also worth mentioning that Nori Aoki is a free agent and has not been expected to return to the Royals.
