Interviewing RHP prospect Alec Marsh

I was perhaps more excited to watch Alec Marsh pitch this season than any other prospect in the system. Marsh tweeted a video of himself earlier this year pumping 97 mph, which certainly piqued my interest: Three digits coming soon… pic.twitter.com/mgoWzJsBzT — Alec Marsh (@AlecMarsh8) May 21, 2020 Coming out of college, Marsh was a…

Interviewing Charlie Neuweiler

Charlie Neuweiler had a really interesting 2019 season for the Royals Low-A affiliate, the Lexington Legends. Neuweiler had a dominant start to 2019, had a weird 7-start rough patch in May and June, and then was really really good again to close out 2019. Neuweiler, a 5th round pick back in 2017, has always piqued…

Brad Keller Interview #2

Brad Keller has been one of the best Rule 5 picks in recent memory. People love to get caught up in how many strikeouts Keller doesn’t record on a daily basis, but they often forget how good Brad Keller really is, ESPECIALLY for a Rule 5 pick: I don’t think people realize how good Brad…

Prospect Watch: Malcolm Van Buren

The core of pitching prospects between A-ball and AA gets a lot of attention. Jackson Kowar, Brady Singer, Kris Bubic, Daniel Lynch, etc. The Royals, however, have a long line of viable pitching prospects that extends all the way down to rookie ball for the first time in a long time. Seemingly every night, one…

Interview with Naturals GM Justin Cole

I met Justin Cole at the Naturals Luncheon not too long ago and he agreed to do an interview with RFR.  Cole has been with the Naturals since the beginning when the team moved from Wichita.  The Naturals should be an exciting team to watch this year and I feel have a chance to compete…

Interviewing Royals prospect DJ Burt

DJ Burt is one of the more interesting prospects in the Royals system. He’s a utility man that can play all over the infield and the outfield, he runs like hell, and gets on base at premium clips. The Royals have an obvious infatuation with guys who can run and play good defense, and DJ…

Interview with Royals LHP Josh Mitchell

We had the opportunity to interview LHP Josh Mitchell shortly after he was assigned to the Lexington Legends to start the season.  Josh made three appearances there before tweaking a hamstring.  In his three appearances with the Legends, Josh threw 4.2 innings, gave up 3 runs with none being earned, five hits, no walks, and…

Interview with Royals catching prospect Chase Vallot

With Spring Training quickly coming to the final turn, Royals baseball is just about back. One of my favorite times of the year though is Spring Training. Some people want it to be shorter. I say extend it. I love watching my favorite major league players play in the same game as my favorite minor…
