*** Official 2018 Royals Repository ***

The season is upon us, even if spring is not.

2018 MLB Draft Picks
#18
#33 - Compensation (Eric Hosmer)
#34 - Compensation (Lorenzo Cain)
#40 (Competitive Balance Round A)

018 Draft Names to Watch

RHP Kumar Rocker, N Oconnee HS, Georgia.
Spoiler!

OF Jarred Kelenic, Waukasha West HS, WI
Spoiler!

1B Triston Casas, American Heritage HS (FL).
Spoiler!

RHP Carter Stewart, Eau de Gallie HS (Ga).
Spoiler!

ANY Any, Any (Any). Any current top projected pick who slides for injury concerns. Includes current top prospect prospect SP Brady Singer, U of Florida.

Current Prospects to Watch:

OF Seuly Matias - Huge tools. Hit 2 HR in Lexington (A) season opener.

1B Nick Pratto - Top pick in 17 has advanced approach and good glove; needs to start tapping into power in first full year in minors. Also at Lexington.

OF Michael Gigliotti - Good defender in CF, good OBP skills, plus baserunner. Next mainstay in CF for KC, IMO. Advanced college bat also starting at Lexington.

OF Khalil Lee - Probably has highest upside in Royals' system. Could hit 30 HR in majors, could steal 30 bases. Plus defensive ability in RF. Nice test at Wilmington this year.

3B Emmanuel Rivera - Really nice approach and good contact skills. Power is still developing. Also getting a good test at Wilmington.

SP Foster Griffin - Made nice strides in 2017. Needs to continue to progress in 2018. Could be a lefty version of Jakob Junis (good breaking ball that he can really manipulate, OK fastball, good command).

1B Samir Duenez - Duenez still is intriguing, hoping for a step forward in his power production this year at Northwest Arkansas, which would turn him into a legit prospect.

Others to keep an eye on:
SP Gerson Garabito (Wilmington), OF Marten Gasparini (Lexington), C MJ Melendez (Lexington), RP Tyler Zuber (lexington), RP Richard Lovelady (Omaha), SP Dan Tillo (Lexington), SS Nicky Lopez (NWA), SP Scott Blewett (NWA), OF Brewer Hicklen (Idaho Falls),

In general, Lexington and Wilmington are the most interesting spots to watch. Nice depth and a lot of interesting pieces at both.

Really Suck;
Maurer
Boyer
Flynn (only played in one game but gave up 3 runs in 1.1 innings)

Don't know yet;

Maurer and Boyer have been disasters for their entire careers. There shouldn't be any surprise for the Royals regarding those two.

The Royals CAN trade him, but it has to be for the right return.

Itís got to be a huge win for the Royals to do it, to the level of the Brewers win with Jon Lucroy (that netted top 25 prospect Lewis Brinson and top 75 prospect Luis Ortiz, for only 1.5 years of control).

Considering Perez is controlled for 3.5 years at market value (or maybe even a little less), itís kind of staggering to think about a comparative return for him.

It would take at least one prospect of Brinsonís stature, maybe even more highly regarded. Plus a top 50. Plus a top 75-100. Plus a lotto ticket.

Is there a contender motivated enough to provide that, that has a deep enough farm system? I just donít know about that.

Thanks, I appreciate the insult.

So, you think we are going to make another run before Sal's contract is up?

Perez turns 28 in May. In two years ( 2020 ) he'll turn 30. In my opinion, catchers don't age well and he seems to be hurt a couple times a year as it is. Who is the best catcher in the minors that could replace him in 2020 or 2021?

Sanchez is only 25 and hit 33 homers last year. It'd be hard to bench him. Now, if he got hurt, that's a different story.

I think you're correct, but I thought they might be willing to part with pieces for a guy like Salvy.

You aren't going to get a return that will match what Salvy brings on the field, in the stands, or for the PR.

Also baseball isn't football or the NBA where you need to blow the bitch up to get the top pick to get the franchise QB or player in basketball. Draft wherever and still have a top farm system.
