The Kansas City Royals will be well represented in the Arizona Fall League as they will have 6 members from various affiliates.
The Arizona Fall League (AFL) is such a great concept in that it allows the opportunity for Kansas City Royals’ prospects to keep working on elements of their game even after their affiliates’ seasons are over. The thing that I enjoy most about baseball is that there really never is a true offseason for a baseball fan.
Sure, the Major League Baseball season concludes at the end of the World Series, but there’s the Arizona Fall League, winter ball, and then Major League Baseball kicks it back into high gear with the winter meetings in San Diego that rolls right back into Spring Training. Rinse and repeat.
Most know that the Kansas City Royals best prospects are in the lower levels, so it’s really no surprise that they have six players that will be participating in it. The great part is that teammates play on the team but several MLB teams will makeup one AFL roster. The Royals squad is assigned to the Surprise Saguaros, which also consists of members from the Pirates, Cardinals, Rangers, and Blue Jays.
Let’s take a look at the six prospects the Royals will be sending to Surprise, Arizona. I’ve also included an area that each player needs to focus on during their time in the AFL.
