Though the Royals Reporter focuses more on the Royals at the Big League level, he does have an interest in prospects and what is going on in the Minors.

Listed below are the 21 most interesting prospects to follow in the Royals system in 2021. This is NOT a Prospect Ranking based on skill or outlook, but more of a ranking in terms of who should be worth paying attention to as casual Royals fan. I will leave the prospects rankings and more in-depth reports to sites like Royals Farm Report and Royals Academy, who both do amazing jobs when it comes to covering prospects and teams in the Royals’ Minor League system.

Anyways, here is the list. This list will be updated, with links to follow after I write each individual profile.
