Updated Kansas City Royals Top 100 Prospect Rankings

The Kansas City Royals have made power moves of sorts this offseason, adding a few big time arms into the system, plus a stud outfielder from the Braves organization. With the recent additions of prospects into the Royals system, we need to update our top 100 for you. Usually we may not worry about it, but because so many of these guys fit into the top 30, we feel that an update is necessary.


Our method for determining our top 100 Royals prospects came from an aggregate of three separate top 100 lists. These lists were compiled by three members of our writing staff: Patrick Brennan, Alex Duvall, and Drew Osborne. Here’s the updated version of the rankings including the newest additions to the Royals farm system.
