Minor League Minutes: 8/10/19

Travis asks the question, “What happened to Frank Schwindel?”

Frank was a popular player in the Royals’ Organization over the last couple seasons. He even has a fun nickname of “Frank The Tank” to go along with his towering size and great attitude.  Still a popular player in the hearts of Royals fans, Frank “The Tank” Schwindel will be celebrated at The Omaha Storm Chasers game on Saturday, August 10, 2019 vs the Las Vegas Aviators, who are the AAA team of the Oakland A’s.

Nick Dini recorded a single in his Major League debut on Thursday night in Detroit.

Dini had to wait until the 6th inning before he got another at bat.  With Nicky Lopez on second and no outs, Matt Hall fell behind 2-0.  Hall hung a curve and Dini ripped it through the 5-6 hole for his first major league hit.  The ball was hit too hard for Lopez to score.  Dini scored later in the inning when Alex Gordon hit a ball 454 feet to right center field.

Be on the lookout later today for the most recent edition of the Royals Farm Report podcast where we discuss Kris Bubic, Jackson Kowar, Bobby Witt Jr., and others.
