Royals land 3 on MLB Top 100

The Royals landed three different players in the MLB Top 100 that was revealed on Tuesday by Jonathan Mayo.  The top two prospects on their list, Bubba Starling and Kyle Zimmer, were taken in the past two drafts for the Royals while Yordano Ventura was signed out of the Dominican Republic.

J.J. Picollo had plenty of good things to say about Bubba Starling via MLB.com:

“We realized pretty quickly that he was far more advanced defensively than we expected,” said J.J. Picollo, assistant general manager/scouting and player development. “We knew he could run, we knew he could throw but his instincts were further along than we anticipated and he continued to get better. A lot of the little nuances — cutting balls off, throwing to the right base; he picked up on things really quickly. He has become a premium center fielder and a guy we think can stay in center field.”

Picollo also said Zimmer will start in Wilmington this season.

About The Author

Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.
