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.
