Kansas City Royals: Paulo Orlando likely odd man out in Royals outfield

The Kansas City Royals should be getting both Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez back here shortly. Fans know what Perez’s return will mean roster wise, but who will be the odd man out when Gordon returns? With Alex Gordon set to return this week, someone in the outfield has to be optioned to the minors.

Kansas rowers raise questions about compliance department protocol

The suspension of seven members of the women’s rowing team at Kansas creates interesting questions about the compliance protocol at the university. Athletes who play Olympic (non-revenue) sports at major universities like Kansas often have experiences which differ greatly from athletes at the same schools who play football and men’s basketball. While there can be […] Kansas rowers raise questions about compliance department protocol - KC Kingdom - KC Kingdom - Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks, Kansas State, Mizzou & More

Royals Rumblings - News for April 24, 2018

Welcome back, LoCain. Royals Rumblings - News for April 24, 2018 Rustin Dodd writes about how much the Royals have been missing Salvador Perez. In 20 games, Drew Butera and Cam Gallagher have combined to bat .190 with a .506 OPS. In 2017, Pérez hit a career-high 27 home runs while posting a .792 OPS, his highest since 2012. “Not to say that the guys that have been filling in haven’t been doing a great job,” Moustakas said. “Those guys are doing a phenomenal job fighting every day, coming ready to work and play. But it’s really hard to replace [Pérez].” Lorenzo Cain is...

The Royals should rip a page out of the Chicago Cubs’ draft strategy

The Royals should rip a page out of the Chicago Cubs’ draft strategy

Not in tanking, but in strategy. There is an acronym for a certain part of player development that gets converted into a gangly made-up word that nevertheless is terrifyingly potent. That word is ‘TINSTAAPP.’ There Is No Such Thing As A Pitching Prospect. TINSTAAPP. Essentially, TINSTAAPP refers to the unstable and unpredictable nature of pitching prospects. Part of that is the utter insanity of the biomechanics required to fling a ball at 90+ miles per hour. Even a single scientific study on the forces involved in pitching yields some mind-bending statistics. For instance, during the...

A ranking of Royals prospects by combining all the rankings

A ranking of Royals prospects by combining all the rankings

Who’s #1? The experts seem to agree, the Royals have one of the worst farm systems in baseball. That doesn’t mean we can’t unearth a few gems, however, and already we have seen a few Royals prospects get off to hot starts. Who are the prospects to look for in the system? There is not a consensus top prospect as there has been in past years. Some evaluators prefer 2017 first-round pick first baseman Nick Pratto, others prefer the power of outfielder Seuly Matias, while others like the power-speed combo of outfielder Khalil Lee. I wanted to combine all the top prospect rankings to...

What should the long-term plan be for Jorge Soler?

What should the long-term plan be for Jorge Soler?

The Royals outfielder is finally hitting, but with only two more years left on his deal, what’s the plan here? The second I heard about the Wade Davis for Jorge Soler rumors, I was confused. The move didn’t make much sense from jump street. It appeared to be a move that was too in-between for what the Royals wanted to do. The Royals were still planning on competing in 2017, yet they traded their All-Star closer before the season ever started. The Royals knew they were going to be entering a lengthy rebuild after the season ended, yet they acquired a player with only four years of...

Is it Salvy day? Royals Rumblings - News for April 23, 2018 Abraham Almonte talks about his big day on Sunday. “I’m getting more confident, seeing the ball better,” said Almonte, whom the Royals claimed off waivers from the Indians at the beginning of April and brought into the fold when Alex Gordon was placed on the disabled list a week on April 10. “I feel like I stay more focused in the approach that I take to the plate every at-bat.” It sounds like Salvador Perez is on his way. Salvy drove in two with a double, then scored on a Gordo double. Now he has hugged everyone in the...
