The Royals have had a terrible June and a miserable 2018, so when it comes to positive news, there isn’t a lot to report. The Royals did promote two significant prospects though, sending Khalil Lee to Double-A and Nicky Lopez to Triple-A. We discussed their significance and what might be reasonable expectations.
Then we talked about the rough June and what’s out there to get excited about. From Brad Keller’s emergence to Rosell Herrera’s hustle, we pretty much covered the most exciting things lately, though the difficult year did bring up a question: Who’s the actual all star for the Royals this year? In a season with few standout performers (and their best one on the DL), who should get to represent the team in the Midsummer Classic?
