While the expected winning season for the Kansas City Royals might not seem quite as guaranteed as it did recently, they do have some pretty good pitching coming from a couple of starters. One of those better starters is actually still considered a prospect. Let's take a look at him and the other four of the Royals' top five pitching prospects.
Through four starts, Adam is struggling pretty well with a 6.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.
Almonte is struggling mightily as well with a 5.23 ERA through four starts. It is of note that while his ERA is high, his WHIP is low at 1.06.
Progress sometimes looks bad in the stat column and that is the case so far in 2014 with Manaea. He has a 8.71 ERA.
Ventura is the one who was spoken of who is doing a great job for the Royals' in the majors right now. He has a 1.80 ERA so far and looks like he will not be ranked as a prospect for much longer.
Though Zimmer has not pitched yet this season, he is considered basically ready for MLB play. Once he is steadily healthy and performing, he very well might get the call this season.
