2007 Royals Draft Review


The Royals got some interesting prospects in the 2007 draft. We take a look at how they are doing.

Fangraphs on the Royals' 2008 Minor Leagues


Interesting given our recent polls and discussions. Not sure what people will think of this in general, but I like fangraphs, so here it is. Short summary (click link above for full details): The Graduate: Mike Aviles The Riser: Alex Caldera The Tumbler: Jeff Bianchi The '08 Draft Pick: Tim Melville The '09 Sleeper: Jose Bonilla Also worth checking out is their review of the Braves' minor leagues. Here's the entry for the Braves' '09 Sleeper: 'Erik Cordier was one of the Royals' brightest, young pitching prospects before being derailed by Tommy John surgery. The Royals sold low on Cordier and shipped him to the Braves for Tony Pena Jr., who became the starting shortstop for the club in 2007 but was brutal in 2008. Cordier missed all of 2007 (and 2005 due to a knee injury) but returned to the mound this season for 11 starts. He was not overly sharp, but his fastball was around 92-93 mph (He was touching 98 mph before the injury) and his secondary pitches were not sharp (He showed a plus change-up before the injury). With another year separating him from the surgery, Cordier could be poised for a breakout 2009 season.' Enjoy!
