Minor League Minutes: July 10, 2018

DJ Burt and Gabriel Cancel are tearing it up in the Carolina League (A+) for the Royals affiliate, the Wilmington Blue Rocks.

There’s three things that DJ Burt does really well:

  1. Get on base

  2. Play defense

  3. Run like hell

The Royals need to be rooting for anyone but the Milwaukee Brewers to land Manny Machado.

If the Milwaukee Brewers land Manny Machado, which they certainly have the pieces to do, then Whit Merrifield’s potential suitors are -1. As much as I think Whit could help the Dodgers, I don’t see them pursuing a Whit Merrifield trade. The Royals should be rooting for the Dodgers to use Alex Verdugo, one of baseball’s tippy top prospects, to pry Machado from the Orioles and leave the Brewers still needing an infielder.

If you could only protect 10 Royals players from being vultured by other teams, who would they be?
