Royals fans, demanding all of the TL list! Of the position players who missed the 20, I would say Derrick Robinson probably came closest to making the list, and people generally like him better than Clint among Northwest Arkansas Robinsons. He obviously gets noticed for his speed, but he showed better aptitude for the game this year and could be a top of the order threat if he walks more. He looks like he could be at least a fourth outfielder, though. He's almost two years younger than Orlando, who is a similar player but also started to figure it out this year. Both can be game changers on the bases and in the outfield, so it's just a question of how much they'll hit. Giavotella, on the other hand, you can be pretty sure he'll hit but the question is whether his game will play at higher levels. It's effort over skill in most aspects for Giavotella, and his swing can get big at times though he rarely has a bad at-bat. He's aggressive at the plate and in the field and hits a lot of balls in the air but doesn't have the power to get away with that approach. Wouldn't be surprised to see him reach the big leagues, but I would expect it to be as a bench player.
