Because they can't all be stars...
Our latest non-hyped Royals prospect is outfielder Lane Adams. Still very young, Adams is a work in progress at the plate, currently playing in Kane County.
Adams was drafted in the 13th round in the 2009 Draft, after deciding to pursue baseball rather than a college basketball career at Missouri State. A decent signing bonus can do that.
As Adams revealed in an interview with Greg Schaum earlier this spring, Adams really focused primarily on basketball in the past, so he's still a raw prospect. Adams struggled with injuries last season, which, perhaps not surprisingly, the Royals had some difficulty diagnosing.
Although Adams is off to a rough start this season at Kane County, it is encouraging that he a) improved and b) was relatively productive in 2010 at Idaho Falls, especially considering that he had injury problems. I especially like how effective he's been on the bases, going 22 for 23 in his stolen base attempts.
The Royals have had Adams spend most of his time in RF, though he has also spent considerable time in CF.
The Royal Revival blog rated Adams the #39 Prospect in the Royals system. That's the highest such ranking I've seen.
Finally, when you Google Lane Adams, you will get a number of results about Amy Adams playing Lois Lane in yet another Superman movie. May that be a harbinger. I think.
