Monday morning reading

While the KC Royals (and all teams across Arizona and Florida) are out in the sunshine working out during spring training this morning, I thought Monday would be a great day to catch up on some Royals news.

*Manager Ned Yost feels that Omar Infante is healthy, though there will be some competition for the second base job (ie Christian Colon).

*There is going to be some competition for the final two spots in the Royals bullpen and lefty Tim Collins hopes to be in the mix.

*Will fellow lefty Jason Vargas throw a pitch for the Royals in 2016? He had Tommy John surgery on August 5th, so it may not happen.

*Jeremy Guthrie signed with Texas and posted a heartfelt goodbye to Kansas City on his Instagram page.


*Former Royals prospect John Lamb, traded to Cincinnati last July, feels good in his first mound session after offseason back surgery, writes Zach Buchanan.

*And then there is former Royals prospect, Sean Manaea, who was traded to Oakland last July. His afro seems to be getting a lot of publicity so far in A’s camp:

Susan Slusser writes that Manaea has tons of talent, fun and hair

Joe Stiglich writes that Manaea is the A’s Samoan Randy Johnson

About Jen Nevius

I first became a KC Royals fan way back in 1995 when I attended my first Wilmington Blue Rocks game. I fell in love with minor league baseball then and began following the Royals as former Blue Rocks clawed their way to the big leagues. 3+ years ago I started covering the Royals for Aerys Sports, but since the site has been shut down, I am going out on my own.
