The Kansas City Royals are on the clock early tonight in the 2012 MLB Draft with the No. 5 overall selection. It's the same slot they used last year to grab highly regarded outfield prospect Bubba Starling and this year the team hopes to strike gold with another impact player -- most likely a college pitcher of some kind. Then again, it depends on what the Astros and others do in front of them with the first four choices.
The Royals are among the few teams without a compensatory selection so after their choice at No. 6, they have to wait through 61 more selections before picking at No. 66 overall in the second round. The MLB Draft is tonight for those who want to watch and we've got all your info here.
