Left-hander Will Smith made what was basically a spot start in the 2nd game of a doubleheader against the Indians. He was sent back down immediately after the game. Smith threw 89.2 innings with the big league team last year and while he wasn't very effective, his peripherals were above replacement. Smith started 2013 in the PCL where was dominant over 4 starts. However, despite a 5/1 K/BB in his 4 innings ...

A Look At Wade Davis The Starter

One of the more interesting parts, at least for me, of the Wil Myers/James Shields trade in the off-season was the announcement that the Royals were transitioning Wade Davis back to being a starter.

*Insert Bad Pun* – The Will Smith Report

Five runs, three homers, six hits, 3 1/3 innings and 2,499,621 bad puns later, the big league debut for Royals prospect Will Smith is in the rear view mirror.

Reasons I don’t mind the Draft rules for the CBA

Royals Positional Depth Charts – Right-Handed Starters (Video)

@ClintScoles Heading into last season it would have been a pretty simple proposition to line up an organizational depth chart at each position considering the Royals had the #1 farm system based primarily on the strength at the top.

CBA Has Its Flaws

As excited as I’ve wanted to be with today’s official announcement that a Collective Bargaining Agreement has been reached by MLB and the MLBPA, ensuring at least five more years of labor peace, I’d be lying if I said I was completely happy with this deal. There are things to like, no doubt. I love the fact that the signing deadline for draft picks will be a month earlier now, and the expansion of instant r ...
