Jeremy Affeldt leads the Royals to 12th place


Today I published my latest Draft Currents column over on Call to the Pen.  This week I looked at the 3rd round picks from 1995 to 2009 of all 30 MLB organizations.  Then I ranked the teams based on the value added by the best pick in terms of WAR.  For the Kansas City Royals, that player was LHP-Jeremy Affeldt from the 1997 draft.

If you’d like to check out the entire column and see where the other teams ranked and who led the way for each of them, go ahead and check out Draft Currents: Rounding up the Thirds.
