The World Baseball Classic and Royals Camp Cuts (BP Kansas City Episode 47)

The Royals’ big league camp is thinning out this week, as they made their first big cut, sending numerous players to minor league camp. Along with that, others are joining their countrymen for the World Baseball Classic.

Jeff and Mike discussed both topics in this episode, including thoughts about the importance of the WBC, the potential of Josh Staumont, and what Kyle Zimmer’s move means.

We also talked about some defensive position swaps Ned Yost has been testing out this spring and which ones might stick beyond March.
