Brad Keller pitched three innings of one-run ball en route to a 11-8 Royals win. Check out an interview we did with him back in January.  Patrick Brennan gave us the weekly minor league review yesterday.  Check out this draft prospect target written by Marcus Meade here at RFR. Excellent stuff.  Two important issues stick…

On Friday, the Royals called up former local prospect Jason Adam to the big league squad. In 18 innings this season, Adam has an ERA of 1.00 with 26 K’s and only 6 BB’s. His fastball has been clocked in the upper-90’s and his curveball has some of the nastiest tilt I’ve seen in a…

Another friendly reminder to check out our Royals prospects rankings index to get caught up on the next wave of talent coming to Kansas City. Sean Thornton of Royals Review looks at why the Royals should take a cue from Jorge Soler. So far Soler has 18 walks in his 24 games, putting him 6th…

Wesley Lantz covers Josh Staumont’s move to the bullpen. In his 10.1 innings of work in Omaha this season, he’s already logged 22 strikeouts to only 7 walks. Being used in those short spurts has allowed his already great stuff to play up even more. This is a development that could be extremely beneficial for…

Our own Marcus Meade takes a look at Royals outfield prospect Rudy Martin. Martin’s defense might be another story. I haven’t had a chance to see him play in person, but reports suggest his arm is only average where Dyson’s arm was solidly above average. Despite an average arm, Martin should still be able to…

The year of Bubba Starling is starting to begin. If he can once again have the success at the plate that he was experiencing before the injury last year then this will be a good year for Bubba.  He is in control of his future and could either be the Royals centerfielder in the near…

Eric Stout made his Royals debut on Wednesday night and our own Drew Osborne had some analysis to follow it up. Ned was so impressed that he sent Stout out to start the 8th. Stout got ahead of Ryan Braun 1-2 before hanging a slider that got stroked into the corner for a double. Travis…

Reminder to check out our Royals prospects rankings while they are still relevant! Over at Royals Review, Ryan Heffernon asks why Cam Gallagher isn’t playing more in Salvador Perez’s absence. You could also make the very strong case that Gallagher is outright better, or at least has more short term upside, than Butera. ZiPS has…

We got you covered with another weekly recap, this one on the Omaha Storm Chasers. Game six had the starting pitcher Heath Fillmyer pitch a gem.  He went 5.1 innings giving up only 2 hits and no runs with 4 strike outs and a walk.  Richard Lovelady came in to finish the game giving up…

Alex and Drew have you covered here with some weekly recaps on both the Royals High-A and AA affiliates. Khalil Lee is off to a hot start hitting .387, but what if I told you he wasn’t leading his team in batting average? What if I told you that a catcher was leading the Blue…

The Royals did something very cool this past Friday, making the signing of Tarik El-Abour official. We have signed outfielder Tarik El-Abour to a minor league contract.

His signing announcement coincides with tonight's Autism Awareness Night. pic.twitter.com/qzb7ACmXqm…
