We have begun releasing our 2019 mid-season Royals prospect ranking update. It looks pretty similar to the list we put in the E-Book, but with updates for 2019 draftees with a few other adjustments as well.
#55: Foster Griffin, LHP
Age: 23 (July 27, 1995)
Birthplace: Orlando, FL
Ht: 6′ 3″ Wt: 220
Acquired: 2014 MLB Draft
2019 stats (Omaha): 74 IP, 5.35 ERA, 68 K, 37 BB
Khalil Lee, OF:
Lee is an interesting player, he’s got good raw power and in 2017 he hit 17 home runs in 121 games as a 19 year old at Low-A Lexington. Everybody was excited for the future of Khalil Lee after that season, thinking if he could cut down on his strikeouts he would take a huge stride forward as a prospect.
Q: What’s your favorite/best position to play in the OF?
Tyler: “Centerfield is my favorite position to play in the outfield. It allows me to be the commander of the outfield and utilize my speed and athleticism to track down balls and make spectacular plays.”
