Check out Jared’s latest breakdown of the Royals minor league rosters, this time in Quad Cities.

Noah Murdock and Christian Chamberlain are attractive arms to watch in 2022. Murdock is returning from an injury and has been limited in innings since his pro debut due to health. 2022 will be a chance for Murdock to show off the elite stuff we all know he has and hopefully stays on the field. Murdock will be looking to improve his offspeed pitches to go with his plus-fastball.

Jackson Kowar was sent down to AAA Omaha after a rough outing on Sunday afternoon.

Kowar has struggled in almost every outing he has had in the big leagues since he made his debut in June of last year. He failed to get to the third inning of his first two starts, and lasted just five innings in two of his eight starts, allowing fewer than four runs just once. He has a 12.03 career ERA in 33 23 innings for the Royals, the highest in club history for anyone with at least 30 innings pitched.
