Hell, take the same approach for Santana, too.
Trade a prospect or two. Angels pick up the buyout money for both, which would be $4.5MM, and then the Royals acquire two legit starters, at incredibly low risk, for $24MM, which the team can easily afford.
No off-season gambling, bidding wars, etc. Rotation = instantly better. Cut Hoch and Chen. Re-sign Guthrie.
