Royals Rumblings - News for January 22, 2019
Drew Osborne at Royals Farm Report reports on a kickoff luncheon for the Northwest Arkansas Naturals.
As far as roster construction goes, Picollo said we expect to see some guys back as well as some new guys. Some of the returners could be Khalil Lee, Samir Duenez, Xavier Fernandez, Jon Perrin, Kelvin Gutierrez (depending on whether or not Cuthbert makes the big league club), Kort Peterson, Nick Heath, Anderson Miller, and Jace Vines. Of course, all those guys could have great training camps and be in Omaha to start the year. We should see Meibrys Viloria this season as well as DJ Burt, Gerson Garabito, and Ofriedy Gomez. There are still quite a few questions as to where guys will start the season and who gets promoted and who has to move up later in the season. Of course the Royals will not hold a guy back who is deserving of a promotion, but they do want to try make sure guys are ready for promotions.
