The June amateur draft is coming up, and for the first time since 1990, the Royals will not have a first round pick. They have had 51 first-round picks in the June draft over the years, not including supplementary picks and competitive balance picks. Of those 51 draft picks, 34 reached the big leagues. One played 2,154 games in the big leagues, one pitched in just two games in a big league uniform, not even in Royals blue.
Can you name the 34 Royals first-round draft picks to reach the big leagues? This means no first-rounders that failed to make it - no Colt Griffins, no Juan LeBrons, no Bubba Starlings....yet.
