The Royals will welcome a train of elite prospects in the coming months.
Third baseman Mike Moustakas, widely considered the top third base prospect in baseball, is racing his friend, first baseman Eric Hosmer, widely considered the best first base prospect, for the first 2011 call-up.
Pitchers Daneil Duffy, Mike Montgomery and John Lamb are close to being ready for the big leagues, and are all considered elite pitching prospects.
Catcher Wil Myers is ready with the bat, but might have to move to outfield because they can't wait any longer for his awesome productivity.
Jeremy Jeffress is already in the big leagues, and is the closer of the future with dominating stuff, and Jake Odorizzi is just another top arm in waiting.
If you're looking for a shortstop, the team already has 24-year-old Alcides Escobar plugged in, who could be a .280/40 SB/100 run leadoff guy for the next decade.
