2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 The plan for 2011 fourth-round pick Kyle Smith was to pitch in the Pioneer League last summer, but a dominant debut where he struck out 11 in five innings prompted the Royals to move him and his curveball to Low-A Kane County.
