The Royals are back in action today against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Rookie Jackson Kowar takes to the hill, having impressed manager Mike Matheny in the first few days of camp.
Mike Matheny on Jackson Kowar's live yesterday: "Probably the best I've seen Jackson. Just his consistency in the zone. Stuff looked right. ... Really good. He made some adjustments to repeat. In his bullpen, I don't think he threw a ball."#Royals— Alec Lewis (@alec_lewis) March 16, 2022
Again, the lineup looks like one that the Royals could use on Opening Day.
