The Omaha Storm Chasers (Pacific Coast League) went 2-4 over their last eight games and now sit at 27-18 on the season as they finish up a trip to the west coast.  The Storm Chasers have the third best record in the PCL trailing Sacramento and Fresno, but lead their division by eight games. Who’s Hot Offensively for the Storm Chasers Tony Abreu and Clint Robinson each have continued to swing hot bats.  Robinson is hitting .351 with 10 RBI over his last ten games.  Abreu is hitting at a .324 clip over his last ten contests and has two home runs, six RBI, and seven runs scored in that time.  Both players have been hot all season offensively with Robinson hitting .315 with 29 RBI, and Abreu checking in at .333 with 24 RBI.  Will Smith has been getting things done on the mound in Omaha.  He has allowed just three runs in 14.2 innings over his last two starts.  Smith is 1-3 on the season with a 4.01 ERA in nine starts this season. Who’s Not Jason Bourgeois has continued to struggle at th

Will Smith to make Major League Debut for Royals in New York

I'm going to leave the "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" and "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" jokes to anyone else who wants them... For now...Tonight in New York, Kansas City Royals' 6 foot 5 inch lefty is slated to make his Major League Baseball debut, starting for the Royals in New York against the Yankees.In 2012, the 22-year old Will Smith, is 1-3 with a 4...

Moore stands firm on advancing prospects

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - With the loss of top pitching prospect Danny Duffy to elbow surgery, the temptation, of course, is for the Royals to rush another prospect into the major-league mix. After all, the Royals' youth movement is alive and well in terms of position players, and that young talent gives Royals fans hope of a bright future. But without Duffy, there is no youth movement...

Teaford goes from Omaha to the disabled list

Left-hander Everett Teaford was recalled from Class AAA Omaha by the Kansas City Royals and pumped for a Sunday start against the Diamondbacks. It never happened. Teaford went on the disabled list Saturday with a lower abdominal strain. Neither Teaford nor the Royals know how the injury occurred. "It's just over the course of the day," he said. "There'...

Salvador Perez Is Coming Back

While throwing to rookie Salvador Perez in the second half of 2011, Kansas City Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar had his most consistent run of success in his career. Luke Hochevar has been an enigma for most of his career. Early on, he was mostly bad with a few starts here and there that showed the ability that the Royals saw when they drafted him 1st overall in the 2006 amateur draft...

Royals rookie Smith set to make his first start in New York

After spending his first night as a major-leaguer in the bullpen, left-hander Will Smith make a spot start for the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday in the series finale at Yankee Stadium. Smith was promoted from Class AAA Omaha, where he was 1-3 with a 4.01 ERA in nine starts. He had allowed 65 hits and 13 walks while striking out 37 in 51 2/3 innings. "We want to see what...

Colon drawing comparisons to Jeter

Now, this is the Christian Colon the Royals envisioned when they drafted him with the fourth overall pick of the 2010 draft. After a slow start, Colon has heated up in the month of May and raised his average to .312 with a .370 on-base percentage for the Class AA Northwest Arkansas Naturals. Colon has three homers, 15 RBIs and eight stolen bases. That's a significant improvement...

Royals' Yost hopes to get another long reliever soon

Felipe Paulino made sure the Royals did not need a long reliever Monday night by throwing 6 2/3 scoreless innings in Kansas City's 6-0 victory over the New York Yankees. Manager Ned Yost had to use only Tim Collins for 1 1/3 innings and Aaron Crow for one inning to close out the shutout. However, Yost knows that won't be the case every night. Many games, the Royals starters...

Yankees give Royals rookie Smith a rude welcome to majors

Left-hander Will Smith was a pedestrian 1-3 with a 4.01 ERA in nine starts for Class AAA Omaha this season before the Kansas City Royals purchased his contract Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Royals thrust him into the rotation on baseball's biggest stage -- Yankee Stadium -- against a star-studded, veteran lineup. Smith, 22, was not quite ready for his Broadway debut, giving...

Felipe Paulino: Extension Canidate?

Call me crazy, but I think the time has come for the Royals to extend Felipe Paulino. Paulino is Super 2 arbitration eligible in 2013 and won't be a free agent until 2015 at the earliest. I think a deal extending him two years with a club option or two might be doable by both sides. A salary breakdown might look like this:2012 - 1.9 Million2013 - 3.1 Million2014 - 4.5 Million2015...
