Marquez Valdes-Scantling quickly answered the door once he saw it was opportunity knocking.

“I think that with the departure of him, it gave me a really good opportunity to be in position to come in and be an immediate impact right away,” Valdes-Scantling said Friday, via Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star. “So, I think that was a huge factor into it.”
