Every year ahead of the draft, I highlight a few players who I like or have heard good things about that I believe would make excellent additions to the Royals organization. While in the past I’ve made multiple selections deeper in the draft, the Royals’ glut of picks means I’m focusing on more higher ranked picks than […]
