About the author

Clint Scoles

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.

    1st of all, forgive me for being lazy and not reading 100% of this article and the kc star one. but did you just copy what kc star had or did you add/sub any players that you thought would end up at a particular level/team?? what happens to these guys? Francisley Bueno, rhp – Tommy Hottovy, lhp – Max Ramirez, C – Kevin Kouzmanoff, 3b – according to KC star list…. AAA has 22 players. AA has 27 players A+ has 26 players (why/how is Sam Runion still around?) A- has 28 players. i’m sure you’ll add/sub/move some players once the injured/not ready players are assigned to a team. thoughts on those and where they will join? thanks. rock chalk

    Bueno Hottovy Ramirez and Kouz are all going to Omaha. The list of players can be found many places. Royals aren’t gonna give up on Runion just yet no point to until he’s a free agent after giving up 2nd round money to him

    My son and I were in Surprise this week and saw Van Stratten and Stovall – they are probably hurt. they didn’t play in the games we saw. Eibner was playing with the Blue Rocks team so I would expect him to be up with them soon. Read that he was injured earlier in ST. Eric Duncan was working out with the NWA team. I thought he would be the starting 3B for Naturals instead of Lisson.

    Daniel Hernandez was in the camp but didn’t see him play. Read on NWA website that Garcia and Osuna were injured.

    Any idea about Leonel Santiago, Eric Basturdo, Dusty Odenbach, Nick Wooley, Brain Peacock, or Claudio Bavera? Have they been released or injured?

    I thought L. Santiago would make the rotation in HiA. Odenbach and Basturdo seemed to have power arms.

    No Ryan Stovall seemed like a decent bat but no real position defensively was a bit old for level last year. Don’t know a status if he’s still on team or not

    Saw Yambati in a photo – he may still be rehabing in ST.

    How about Crawford Simmons, anything known about his health?

    Also saw that Jose Bonilla is hurt, I suppose it’s too early to get a full injury update for players.

    Avinazar has been released

    Not sure on Yambati, Eibner is dealing with an injury probably see him in May or June.

    What happened to Eibner? Have they given up on Yambati and Avinazar?

    Definitely holds water… Starling is ready to play full season baseball, but there are some mechanical things to work out and extended is the best place to do it.

    I notice that a few players aren’t on this list. Did we release orlando, TSmith, Van Stratten, Francis?

    I realize that these are the opening day rosters, but Bob Dutton said someting interesting. he said he believes that Starling will be in Kane County, possibly as early as the end of April. Does this hold water? Will Bubba actually advance that quick?
