Royals Draft History
« on: 6 Jan 2012 4:52:12 PM »
2012 Winter Draft

1.11: Jesus Guzman - 1B/3B/LF/RF (San Diego Padres Organization)

2012 Summer Draft

1.12: Rymer Liriano - CF/RF (San Diego Padres Organization)
1.24: Rougned Odor - SS/2B (Texas Rangers Organization)
3.17: Eugenio Suarez - SS (Detroit Tigers Organization)
4.17: Carson Kelly - 3B (Westview High School, Oregon)


A Look Back: Guzman was a useful bench piece for a few seasons.  Liriano has proven himself in the minors, but has yet to see that translate to the big leagues in any meaningful fashion.  Odor is an incredibly maddening player, with incredible talent, fantastic power, and a high level of inconsistency.  Odor is coming off back to back 30 HR seasons as a 2B.  Suarez is coming off back to back 20 HR seasons and capably plays 2B, 3B, and SS at the ML level.  Carson Kelly has moved to catcher, is a top prospect for the Cardinals, and the heir apparent to Yadier Molina.  All-in-all, we'd take a draft like this every year.
