“I believe in our organization, I’m excited about what is to come with the Royals!”
Q: What technology has the organization used (or you discovered on your own) that has helped your approach to pitching?
A: I think using Trackman and Rapsodo have helped me realize more about my spin rates to utilize my pitchers better and to focus on where are my strengths (location-wise in the zone and out of the zone) for tunneling purposes of my pitches.
Q: There are obviously some changes coming to the Kansas City Royals organization with a new owner and manager. Do you feel the effects of this?
A: I don’t feel the effects because it’s not something I can control. I believe in our organization, and I believe in the front office’s ability to bring in people with the championship mindset so I’m excited about what is to come with the Royals!
Q: Tell us how faith has helped guide you through your baseball career.
A: I realize that there is more to life than just baseball. I realize that the platform I am on is a platform that many people look up to and view as someone on a pedestal. I am super thankful to the big man upstairs for allowing me to play this game and where I am and I just have to always realize that and be thankful for where I’m at and hopefully where I’m going!
Q: I saw recently you were able to do a Fortnite stream with your alma mater’s eSports program. How much fun was that and how did that come about?
A: That Fortnite stream was fun! I love to play Fortnite in my off time because it’s something that brings buddies of mine together from all over the world. I actually reached out to them to see if it was possible to play and they were excited about the opportunity and it just kind of happened.
