Seven Royals are in Arizona competing in the Arizona Fall League. The AFL runs from October 4 to November 19, featuring upper level minor leaguers.
Royals prospects join those of the Rays, Braves, Marlins and Rangers to form the Surprise Saquaros.
They play their fourth game tonight after winning their first three. Not every Royal has seen action, but early on, Wil Myers has had the best showing, going 3-8 with a homer and three RBIs. He’s also walked twice.
I'm a KU grad and longtime Royals fan who shudders at the names Ricky Bottalico, Kerry Robinson, and others too terrible to recount, while also longing for the days when Johnny Damon would do commercials with George Brett. I'm glad that there's a new crop of potential stars to hang my playoffs hopes on.
