Royals Quick Hits: Tim Collins Makes Team USA, Bruce Chen Waits For News From Team China

There are lots of quick hits in this Chicago Tribune (article link - http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/sns-rt-bbo-royals-teamreportmtze91ly800qu-20130121,0,1279636.story) story. As we all know (thanks Will Ferrell), Bruce Chen is a native of Panama, but is attempting to pitch for Team China in this year’s World Baseball Classic. From the sounds of it, Chen is all but on the team…if he can locate a birth certificate of one of his three grandparents that were born in China. Tim Collins had made Team USA and joins ex-Royal Jeremy Affeldt in the bullpen.
In other news, Salvador Perez was Rookie of the Year in the Venezuelan winter league, while Kansas City minor leaguer Juan Gutierrez was the Reliever of the Year. Gutierrez, 29, has spent parts of four seasons in the major leagues with the Astros and Diamondbacks.

About The Author

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that.I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.
