Evaluating the AL Central Windows: Detroit

We recently wrapped up the SB Nation Offseason Simulation over at Royals Review and, frankly, it’s become one of my favorite little offseason activities. I had the White Sox this year and while I was looking at their roster and prospects, it made me curious to further evaluate the rest of the AL Central to see when…

Arizona Fall League Update: 11/8/21

Let’s start here today: This is a FANTASTIC update for the Royals. Add in the fact that Jonathan Bowlan is already throwing baseballs in some capacity in Arizona (recovering from Tommy John Surgery), and the Royals best three remaining pitching prospects are all headed in the right direction so far in Arizona. Asa Lacy has…

Evaluating the AL Central Windows: Chicago

So, we are currently running the SB Nation Offseason Simulation, which you can read about and follow over at Royals Review. I am personally operating as the White Sox faux GM and have gone all in to try to make a World Series run in 2022. I also added two young, controllable arms in Touki…

Nate Eaton:– .439/.477/.610/1.087– 5 doubles, 1 triple– 3 walks, 10 strikeouts– 3 stolen bases, 0 caught stealing Eaton continues to impress in Arizona.

Nate Eaton:– .476/.476/.762/1.238– 4 doubles, 1 triple– 0 walks, 4 strikeouts– 3 stolen bases, 0 caught stealing Eaton may be having the most impressive stint in the Fall League among Royals prospects. He’ll be 25 before Opening Day in 2022, and he’s yet to reach Double-A, but he’s Rule 5 eligible this offseason and its…

Trim the Fat

Much has been made about the 40-man roster decisions that the Kansas City Royals will have to make this offseason, including another piece I wrote here at Royals Farm Report. Luckily for the Royals, the MLB playoffs are still taking place and the MLB offseason won’t officially begin until November 4th, so they’ve got some…
