2024 Kansas City Royals Top Prospects

I love what I do for a living.  Watching and writing about young baseball players is awesome.

But I must tell you – writing about the Royals this season was a slog.  Gavin Cross is still a Top 100 player, but my comment about him being a 20-20 player might be over-zealous.  I like Cayden Wallace as a nice complementary player, and maybe in five years, Blake Mitchell provides some fantasy value, but it’s just not a very good system.

It’s been lousy drafting, poor development, and a lack of finding impact players in the international market.  I think the Royals need to do some soul-searching, or Witt Jr. might become the Royals’ version of Mike Trout – a great player who will rarely, if ever, play in a playoff game.
