This week, we finally caught up with Clint Scoles to talk about the Royals 2019 draft and the state of the Royals’ farm system. Clint’s insight and knowledge is unmatched, and we’re always glad to have him on. He discussed Bobby Witt Jr., college players in the draft, named a few of his favorite picks, and then talked a bit more about the Royals minor league topics like the struggling lineup in Wilmington and the sudden pitching depth in the system.
You can read Clint’s work at RoyalsAcademy.com and by following him on Twitter at @ClintScoles.
We also talked about All-Star news, some returning players (and departing ones), plus a little look at the news that the Royals might use openers later this year.
