"Royals: Nathan Adcock, RHP, from Pirates: 22 years old, went 11-7 with a 3.38 ERA and a 113/38 K/BB in 141 innings in the Florida State League. Fastball is average but has a good curve and throws strikes. Might stick in long relief." Nothing new, really, but Sickels's opinion is worth something. He wouldn't say that Adcock could stick (ugh) just to be optimistic. Personally, I think that Aneury, Egan, and Emaus were all better picks with a higher likelihood of sticking on the roster for a full season.
