Sal’s Contract, Bubba’s Contact, Zimmer’s Opening Act, and Dyson Got Hurt…Fact



As spring training games started up, the Royals started making a little bit of news. And Jeff returned to help host (after his first few weeks adjusting to parenthood).

The Royals signed Salvador Perez to a contract extension, so we talked about the money, the risks, and what it means for the organization.

We also talked briefly about Jarrod Dyson‘s oblique injury, Bubba Starling‘s rising hope, and we shared some thoughts about Kyle Zimmer‘s solid spring debut.

Discussing Royals Prospects with Jim Callis of MLB Pipeline

One side effect of following a winning baseball team we’ve discovered is that the “wait until ___ when the prospects arrive” (ah, 2011, we missed you, sort of) isn’t really a thing anymore, so Jeff and Mike have lost track of the fine details of the Royals’ farm system.

Jim Callis

Thankfully, there are experts out in the world who can help us catch up. Jim Callis of MLBPipeline.com was kind enough to lend his insight to us and we talked about the Royals depth in the minors, the star power in the system, and how some of the familiar names like Kyle Zimmer, Raul Mondesi, and Bubba Starling might turn out as well as Ashe Russell, Scott Blewett, Foster Griffin, and Matthew Strahm.

He also shared his thoughts about some of the risers in the system and who the surprises of 2016 might be. We’ve owed you a show about prospects for a while, and this one will help you get caught up along with us. You can follow Jim on Twitter at @jimcallisMLB.
