Minor League Minutes: 5/23/18; Nicky Lopez has a monster night

Baseball America did a mock draft on May 18, and they had the Royals selecting Noah Naylor, a SS/3B/C from St. Joan of Arc Catholic. You will have to subscribe to get the rest of the mock, but this is what they had to say about the Royal’s possible 18th pick in the draft:

Naylor has an argument as the best bat in the class, has a track record against professional arms and is also in the mix at higher spots than this. His brother Josh’s pro success won’t hurt his cause either.

Patrick Brennan wrote a recap of the Royal’s minor league affiliates for Tuesday.

Big day for Khalil Lee on Wednesday and we noticed something interesting about Lee 👀

Also, Frank Schwindel made Minor League Headlines when he did this to get an out at 1st.

Over at Royals Review, Alex wonders if the Royals rotation isn’t missing Dave Eiland.

One thing that Dave Eiland did very well in his time in Kansas City was get good Danny Duffy to appear more often than not. Rarely did Duffy have prolonged streaks of poor performances like the one he’s had to begin the 2018 season. I don’t know what Dave Eiland did, but Danny Duffy had the best years of his career with Dave Eiland at the helm.
