I have gotten behind on these posts with the start of Spring Training, as I haven’t written a “Top 50” Tier post since early February. Thus, I am going to abbreviate these posts a little bit in order to ensure that they get done before the start of the Minor League season in April. Here’s… Read More Examining the Tier Five Prospects (Royals 2023 “Top 50 Prospects to Watch” Rankings)
I wasn’t able to get in a post yesterday due to a crazy day at work, but it was probably for the best, as the Royals pulled off another trade yesterday, this time including talented, but oft-injured infielder Adalberto Mondesi. Let’s not waste any time and get right into this edition of the “Jottings” as… Read More “Reporter Jottings”: MAT and Mondesi Traded; What the Royals Got in Return; What’s Next From Picollo?
In a surprising move on Saturday, the Royals announced via Twitter that they have signed former Atlanta and Philadelphia utility infielder Johan Camargo to a Minor League contract: The 29-year-old infielder didn’t produce much at the plate in his lone season with the Phillies in 2022. In 52 games and 166 plate appearances, Camargo produced… Read More Is Hunter Dozier’s Time With the Royals Coming to an End Soon?
In some interesting hot stove news, Boston Red Sox GM Chaim Bloom announced that Trevor Story had a UCL injury last season and that their star shortstop underwent a procedure this offseason to fix that issue. As mentioned in the article, due to technological advances in medicine and rehabilitation, it’s not a guarantee that Story… Read More Mondesi Makes Sense for the Red Sox; But Does it for the Royals?
There aren’t many more intriguing players on the Royals’ 40-man roster right now than Nate Eaton, especially as we near the start of Spring Training. Eaton has been a fast riser in the Royals system, as he was a pretty unheralded prospect in the Royals system at this time last year (he mostly was on… Read More Nate Eaton and the Royals’ Hole at Third Base
It is officially 2023, and it’s a new year for everyone, including the Kansas City Royals. Before I go into this post, I just wanted to thank everyone for reading and following the blog over the past year. I wrote less in 2022 on this blog in regard to a pure words-end, as I wrote… Read More Three Questions the Royals Need Answer Prior to Spring Training
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I have been super busy with the end of the semester over the past week, culminating with my testing positive for COVID over the weekend. Merry Christmas, I guess, but at least I can settle down and get a post done, even though I expect this to be… Read More When Will the Royals Trade Michael A. Taylor?
When the Royals acquired Drew Waters from the Atlanta Braves (along with infielder CJ Alexander and pitcher Andrew Hoffmann), it was a deal that went under the radar by most outside of Royals circles. After all, Waters, once a top prospect in the Braves system back in 2020, had regressed a lot in terms of… Read More Drew Waters Should Make Michael A. Taylor Expendable for the Royals This Offseason
After a rough recent road trip, the Kansas City Royals started their final homestand of 2022 with authority, as they swept the Minnesota Twins and pretty much ended their postseason hopes. Granted, the Royals are 61-89 after Thursday’s 4-1 victory. It’s not like a strong finish will make this bitterly tough season any sweeter. However,… Read More Three Royals Position Storylines Worth Following as the 2022 Season Concludes
The Royals avoided the sweep on Sunday with a 15-7 blowout win over the San Diego Padres to bring their record to 52-77 for the year. The trouncing of former Royals draft pick Sean Manaea and the Padres bullpen (including former Brewers closer Josh Hader) is a cruel reminder of how this 2022 season has… Read More Four Royals on the 40-man Worth Paying Attention to This September
