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.
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.
And give our sponsor, Kelly’s Westport Inn, a follow at @KellysBarKC. If you have any last minute holiday party planning to do, Kelly’s is happy to help. With drink specials and food options, they can accommodate anywhere from 10 to 200 people. Just send them a message at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
