While we were away, the Royals added a lot of talent to their organization by way of the MLB Draft. This year, the Royals had the second overall pick in a draft with two huge prospects at the top of the draft. With a team-record bonus, they’ve signed high school shortstop Bobby Witt Jr.

We discussed his profile along with the rest of the Royals’ draft, in particular their focus on college players (for the second year in a row). Aside from Witt, we talked about a few other names selected by the Royals and how things might shake out.

We also discussed Jorge Soler and all-star potential, trade rumors, and career highs. Plus some discussion of Bubba Starling and why we think he’ll reach Kansas City sooner rather than later.
