Kansas City Royals Minor League Position Rankings – Middle Infield

In past years I’ve ranked the Kansas City Royals minor league prospects by position but this year I thought I’d change things up. I’ve already got my Top Prospects List out so it’s pretty apparent where I value each guy but I will be taking an open mind to Arizona with me from March 16-21. During that time the Royals have and off day and two night games so I will have ample time to take in the minor league ...

A Royals Opinion: Moving through August

Kyle Smith and Sam Selman I consistently lead off my posts with something negative. Mainly because the Royals are awful yet again. Yet when someone has starts like Kyle Smith and Sam Selman had last night, it is worthy to lead-off. Smith pitched 7 inning gave up 3 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, and 12 strikeouts. In 40.2 innings at Kane County he has 54 strikeouts and only 12 walks. He is only 19 years old and show ...

SPRINGDALE, Ark. -- There were some scary moments in Saturday night’s Northwest Arkansas Naturals vs. Arkansas Travelers game at Arvest Ballpark.
