The Royals may have fixed Brett Phillips

When Brett Phillips came to the Royals from the Brewers in a trade for Mike Moustakas in 2018, he was an instant crowd favorite.  He hustled all over the field.  He went diving for line drives.  He crashed into walls to make catches.  He laughed weirdly.  He wielded a funny looking Axe handled bat, but…

Prospect Watch: Richard Lovelady

It’s not very often you’ll see a pure reliever ranked as a top ten prospect in an organization, but Royals Farm Report felt so inclined to do so, ranking left-handed reliever Richard Lovelady at #9 in our top 100 series. Now this can be attributed to a number of reasons, such as the Royals having…
