Goldstein on the Royals 2008 Draft

Just a little snippet:

Kansas City Royals
Top Pick:
The third overall pick in the draft and top high school bat available, first baseman Eric Hosmer got off to a brutal start at Single-A Burlington. Much like their 2007 first-round selection, Mike Moustakas, Hosmer struggled to adjust to Midwest League weather and more consistent quality pitching, but he's made adjustments and is batting a healthy .269/.402/.418 in May.
Movin' On Up: The Royals have a number of very young high-round draftees who were held back in extended spring and will likely not play until short-season leagues begin. Supplemental first-round pick Mike Montgomery and fourth-rounder Tim Melville have been impressive at times at Burlington.
Disappointing: Seen as a low-ceiling but move-quickly type, second-round pick Johnny Giavotella is struggling just to get out of A-ball, hitting .211/.345/.345 in the High-A Carolina League.
