After much speculation & hope among those Kansas City fans already familiar with him, left-handed hurler Tim Collins has officially been named to the Royals Opening Day Roster as a member of the bullpen, as per RotoWorld.com:
“The maybe 5-foot-7 reliever was informed of the decision this weekend. Collins has great velocity and should do quite well in a setup role for Kansas City.”
