Minor League Minutes: 7/30/18 – Trade Deadline Eve

For the first time in his professional career, Mike Moustakas is not a part of the Kansas City Royals franchise.

In a bit of sensical, but still sad news, the Kansas City Royals have traded long-time third baseman Mike Moustakas to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Patrick wrote up the scouting reports for the players that the Royals received in return for Moose:

Jorge Lopez, RHP

Brett Phillips, OF

Patrick still thinks that the Scott Alexander trade was awful, and wants to tell you why.

And to make matters worse, the Royals attached one of their more valuable trade assets in Scott Alexander, flipping him to the Dodgers.

Marcus wrote up a report of the high-flying IDF Chukars’ offense.

Drew recapped Baseball America’s report of how each prospect that has been traded so far rank.

Max Rieper over at Royals Review rounded up some reactions to the Mike Moustakas trade.

Ned Yost got a scouting report on Brett Phillips from his son, who coached Phillips in the minors.

“It was more last year than this year,” Yost said, reciting his son’s report. “It’s been kind of a struggle for him this year. But (he has) phenomenal, off-the-chart makeup. He loves to play the game, plays the game with energy, and just hustles his ass off.”

Hokius wants you to remember that the process is more important than the results.
