KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Amid a distressing makeover by the Royals, the franchise faces numerous complicated decisions. But one looming consideration has more perilous and broad implications than about any other.

The Royals are exploring the possibility of trying to sign Luke Heimlich, the Oregon State pitcher who as a 15-year-old in 2012 pleaded guilty to a felony charge of molesting his 6-year-old niece.

“We continue to seek information that allows us to be comfortable in pursuing Luke,” general manager Dayton Moore said recently.
