Royals Minor League News:
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.
Adalberto Mondesi has had a great first two games in Spring Training. He has gone 3 for 4 with one of those hits being a home run. Right now it looks like all signs are pointing to him getting a spot on the Opening Day roster but the question is where.
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.
