Tim Collins has possibly made the Royals Opening Day roster. Although all I've seen on this is Dave Gershman's tweet. (Gershman writes for Beyond the Boxscore, btw.) Though the move does make sense. It's a little surprising that Dutton hasn't confirmed as well.

An interesting player on the 2011 Royals! And soon! They said it couldn't happen.

Collins, acquired last season from Atlanta, has struck out 13.3 batters per nine in the minor leagues. The hurler has been on the radar of prospect mavens since his days in the Toronto system. He was recently rated the #15 Royals Prospect in the Royals Review rankings.  He is famous for being not tall. That, and striking people out. Strikeouts, little. You are up to speed.
