Prospect Watch: Dillon Drabble

Royals RHP prospect Dillon Drabble went to the University of Central Arkansas out of HS, transferred to Seminole State after one year, and signed to play at Texas A&M. The Royals drafted Drabble in the 17th round of the 2016 draft and give him a $100,000 bonus before he could get on the Aggies campus. Drabble only threw 6.1 innings in 4 games at UCA before his transfer but threw a full season at Seminole State.

Hokius from Royals Review wants to give Jorge Soler a chance in the sun.

Once upon a time, the Royals had a highly touted right-field prospect. They had acquired him in a weird trade where they sent a pretty good player to another team in a move that didn’t necessarily make a lot of sense. When he first arrived in KC he hit terribly in limited playing time and got demoted to Omaha a couple different times. The Royals had promised he had all kinds of power when they made the trade but he sure didn’t show much of it when he got to KC and everyone was pretty frustrated.
I am, of course, talking about Jermaine Dye.
