Final Thoughts

It is going to be hard finding bright spots. It is also going to be hard seeing guys who most likely won’t be on the team next year, much less the end of the year, continue being used while the Royals have promising arms in the system.

At the same time, those pitchers are worth keeping an eye on until they get called up. The thing we as fans have to keep in mind is that the Royals have strong arms in the system to fill the team’s holes within the next year.

Do not get comfortable seeing guys like Boyer, potentially Maurer, and even Kelvin Herrera coming from the bullpen. The odds of those three being on the team by the end of the year or even next season are not very high. Therefore, some of the “green” pitchers might be making their presence felt here soon.

So what do you think Royals fans? Do you think the bullpen has a chance of turning out better than we originally thought? Are you looking forward to another pitcher potentially making his debut? Let us know below!
