Follow @RoyalsBlue_com 1. John Means Means was born on April 24, 1993 in Olathe, Kansas. He graduated from Gardner Edgerton High School in 2011. While a senior at Gardner Edgerton, the Atlanta Braves selected Means in the 46th round, but he didn’t sign. Means decided to attend Fort Scott Community College for one year before transferring to West Virginia University. After graduating from West Virginia, the Baltimore Orioles...

Singer makes his name known to MLB

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After being drafted by the Royals in 2018, Brady Singer has been dominant. As most of you know, prospects usually go through their team’s entire minor league system before being called up to the majors, but not Singer. Singer didn’t have to play in Omaha. This could have something to do with COVID-19. And, yes, I am getting tired of talking about the virus too. Let’s be thankful that we have...

Patrick Mahomes now part of Royals’ ownership group

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After signing his massive contract with the Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes decided to get in on the ownership group for the team next door. For Chiefs’ fans and Royals’ fans this shouldn’t come as a surprise. As a kid, Mahomes was around big league clubhouses all the time, with his dad playing for six major league baseball teams. Those teams included the Twins, Red Sox, Mets, Rangers, Cubs and Pirates. Mahomes...

Royals Farm Report needs more attention

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In June of 2017, Royals Farm Report was born. Patrick Brennan started up this site to talk about the Royals minor league system. Since 2017, Royals Farm Report has grown. I can bet a lot of you are thinking to yourself, what is the big deal about Royals Farm Report? There’s more than you think. To start off, the site has multiple writers and photographers. This means that they don’t just get the...

Sparkman might find himself back in the rotation

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Despite his struggles last season, the Royals might move Glenn Sparkman back into the starting rotation. Yes, I realize Sparkman looked like a mess yesterday against the Astros but remember it’s spring training. And yes, I know his stats from 2019. If you don’t, here they are. Sparky appeared in 31 games for the Royals and went 4–11. He started 23 of those 31 games. His ERA wasn’t pretty...

Someone’s time is up in center field

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Could Brett Phillips’ or Bubba Starling’s time with the Royals be up?   The Royals made a trade with the Padres this week. In the deal the Royals acquired outfielder Franchy Cordero and pitcher Ronald Bolanos for pitcher Tim Hill. I can guess Cordero was the centerpiece of the trade for the Royals. The Royals have been trying to fill the hole in centerfield since Lorenzo Cain left for the...

Royals Swap Hill For Cordero and Bolaños

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com (K.C. Alfred/The San Diego Union-Tribune) Last night the Royals made a move! And a fairly big one at that. The Royals traded LHP Tim Hill for OF Franchy Cordero and RHP Ronald Bolaños. Both will be added to the 40 man roster immediately. This move was a bit of a surprise but made sense considering the Royals surplus of bullpen arms at the moment. This deal helps guys like Randy Rosario who is out of options and...

What will Soler’s next contract look like?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com I believe the contract won’t be a super long-term commitment. Cheers to that, some fans might want him to sign a 4 or 5 year deal. I am not one of those fans. I am in favor of a 3-year contract extension worth about $60 million or more. Remember, the Royals don’t have the money the Chiefs once did. Yes, you heard me correctly—once did. The Chiefs recently signed star quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a...

Don’t let the opener ruin Baseball

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In 2018, the Tampa Bay Rays introduced the opener. Yep, that’s right, the Rays have been using the opener since 2018. What’s the problem with the opener you ask? Well I’ll tell you, to start off the title “starting pitcher” would not make any sense because when you look at a lineup card it says the starting pitcher for that game at the bottom of the card. Teams would have to say...

Don’t forget about Jesse Hahn

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals acquired Jesse Hahn from the Oakland Athletics in 2018. I think that’s a trade Kansas City would love to take back. Hahn is the last one standing from that trade with the Athletics. Unfortunately for Hahn, he hasn’t been able to stay healthy since arriving in Kansas City. However, I still believe he has a role to play in the 2020 season. The Royals are still searching for a fifth starter....

Is this Kyle Zimmer’s final shot with the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After being selected in the first round of the 2012 MLB Draft by the Kansas City Royals, Kyle Zimmer has battled multiple injuries. This includes missing the entire 2018 season with a shoulder injury. Zimmer’s shoulder has led to most of his injuries since being drafted by Kansas City. Despite all the setbacks, the Royals still believe in the former first rounder. With Zimmer being 28 years of age, I don’t...
