The Royals farm system is stacked and it would be even more stacked if not for all of the early call ups last year. According to Kevin Goldstein at Baseball Prospectus in his Top 11 Royals Prospects, the Royals fifth best prospect is still a four star guy.
Topping the list is outfielder Wil Myers, the Royals third round pick in 2009. Myers had a really good year at Double-A and he could be roaming a corner outfield spot for the Royals for some years to come. He’ll start with Omaha but we could see him with the Royals in the second half.
Number two is another outfield prospect, Bubba Starling. The teams first round pick this past season, Starling signed too late to play. This guy is both a power and speed guy so keep an eye on him down at Kane County next year because he should be tearing it up.
Jake Ororizzi (RHP), Cheslor Cuthbert (3b) and John Lamb (LHP) round out the top five. None of these guys are major league ready but it’s looking like 2013 could be the year the Royals start seeing the fruits of their high picks and trades come together.
