Dayton Moore said pitching is the currency of baseball, and developing young pitching has been the backbone of this organization for decades.

The inaugural Royals club had four rookies in the rotation toss 100 innings or more - the Royals have had just four rookie starters throw at least 100 innings in a season in the last decade.

Overall there have been 35 Royals pitchers that tossed at least 100 innings in a season. Some turned into stars, others turned into has-beens. Most were starters, but there are a few relievers in there as well. Of the 35 Royals rookies to toss 100 innings, how many can you name?
