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.

    Thanks for the info Lopez going to Kane County would probably mean a bump to High A Wilmington for Orlando Calixte. Diekroeger could take Lopez spot with Mondesi moving over to be the regular SS.

    Bryan Brickhouse and Kyle Smith won’t make it to the weekend in Idaho Falls. That’s been publicly stated. The same is expected of Lopez, but it hasn’t been publicly declared. All three are headed up to Kane County, so say my sources.

    Greg, I take it you are saying Bubba is going to DL…if so man what a start to his career…..Clint I agree & for an ie last yr @ Omaha Dyson played CF while Cain plaed RF, but if he has a chance for CF I sure would like to see him more in CF than RF also Id take Mondesi in CF if he can play & hit there….nice to have some fresh prospects starting up….

    Young ugly baseball you’re gonna get plenty of that at rookie ball. Some thought he’d be a RF in time so maybe they are making that move now. I’m sure we’ll see him a few games in CF also but Chapman is a better defender out there currently.

    As far as assignments go there is no right or wrong answer and if you can get Mondesi some games against a higher level of competition and he can handle it then that’s a good thing. I didn’t see the quick reflexes out of Mondesi that you may like out of SS and his best spot longterm could be CF.

    I thought Elier Hernandez was suppose to have 5tool CF potential….. w/ him starting in RF @ 16yrs of age seems more like a corner power potential bat, 2errors in RF to start the yr hope that is just his extremely young age showing there…..they could have placed Mondesi in the AZL in order to let all 3(Mondesi, Lopez & Arteaga) play SS everyday but I guess they are focusing on developing Mondesi’s bat more over his Defense w/ the higher level of competition. I would guess that means 1 repeats the level or Calixte moves off SS to uncluster the 4….Any word on Colon’s Toe?? …..thx in adv

    Bubba’s injury last year was a quad, not a hamstring. Call me paranoid, but I have concerns about whether he’ll stay healthy, as this is the third such injury since last spring.

    Royals have some depth at SS at the lower levels. Either way they were going to be forced to team Mondesi up with a good shortstop prospect in Lopez or Humberto Arteaga. Hamstring has been described as a tweak currently and he’ll be pushed back 3 or 4 days.

    It’s good to see the short season schedule is underway. It’s good to see Elier and Adalberto already in the states. Why are Mondesi and Lopez both on the same team though? Aren’t they both considered high profile SS prospects?? I never can remember, which short season team is considered the higher level??

    What’s the word on Starling?? Minor tweak or another pulled hamstring. Didn’t that same injury cut his AFL short last year?
