Daniel Lynch, LHP and a Douglas Freeman and UVA alum, is projected to be in the Royals' starting rotation this summer (fingers crossed).
Vinnie Pasquantino, 1B and a James River HS/ODU/Va. Cardinals alum, is in big league camp and has seen a fair amount of action in spring training games this spring. Vinnie's performance has taken him from not being on most of the Royals' prospects lists to being near the top of those lists now.
Noah Murdock, RHP and a Colonial Heights/UVA/Va. Cardinals alum, has had some injury issues that have slowed his ascent, but remains a solid prospect in the Royals' system as well.
With the Nationals seemingly heading for last place this year, maybe I need a new favorite team to follow? Go Royals!
It's amazing that three guys who all played with and/or against each other locally and in college ball are all there together now.
