*** 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.

I知 the same way. I know losing is best for the franchise at the moment, but once the game is on I知 rooting for a win. I cannot actively root for any of my teams to lose.

I'm at the point that having the #1 overall pick is meaningless with Moore's drafting team at the reins. So I'd rather just see them win.

I want them to lose and but the young guys to play well, as well as tradeable assets.

Another big name on the move, the Mets traded Familia to the A's today. Oakland is going for it. The Mets got a 23 year old 3B in A ball who is Oakland's 17th ranked prospect, plus a 26 year old reliever in AAA.

The success rate of top 3 picks and especially 1-2, is light years better than that of the rest of the first round.

It makes a difference.

Being one game worse in 2007 means Price instead of Moustakas. In 2010, it means Machado instead of Colon. In 2011, Bundy instead of Starling.

So absolutely lose to get into the best draft position possible.

I turned the game off after Hammel in the 8th. I thought they'd blow it. They tried but just couldn't get it done. Damn....we can't even win the race to the bottom!

Well, I certainly want them to win tonight since I'm in town and it's the one game I'll be able to make this season.

He's usually the DH on Sundays, but of course if you don't go he'll be behind the dish.

By the sounds of it there are 2 surefire ones in the draft next year.
