Royals were in action in Surprise against the Rockies today
Barlow gave up a HR on the first pitch of the game but settled in and only allowed the one run over 2 innings of work.
Soler hit a HR on his birthday on a frozen line drive that went out in a hurry. Not a bad present for himself and a lot of Royals fans who are hoping he can stay healthy this year.
Flynn did not have a good day. Had command issues and loaded the bases. Then gave up a grand slam to Mark Reynolds. He ended up allowing seven runs. Six were earned.
With the analytics revolution continuing in baseball and the Royals using more and more technology, the option for more data is always there.
I think that some of where Whit is coming from is from the balance he shows as a player. Weak contact is fine if you are putting the ball where is needs to go. His approach is to get the job done in anyway possible.
He went on the say that he is happy on whatever role the Royals want and in talking to a member of the front office I think making things simpler is what the Royals want for Staumont.
