Brandon Sisk Invited To Kansas City Royals Spring Training Camp

Brandon Sisk has reason to celebrate early this year. His performance last year in the minors gave him enough momentum to warrant a look for the big leagues this year. And given the young state of the Royals, he'll have as good a shot as any to impress Dave Eiland and the rest of the Royals coaching staff.

Dick Kaegel writes, "Sisk becomes the eighth pitcher added to the 22 arms on the 40-man roster, giving new pitching coach Dave Eiland 30 prospects for the staff. The first official workout will be on Feb. 21 in Surprise, Ariz. Last season, Sisk, 26, had a combined record of 7-3 with a 2.52 ERA and two saves in 41 relief outings for Double-A Northwest Arkansas (3-1, 3.77 ERA in 16 games) and Triple-A Omaha (4-2, 1.41 ERA in 25 games). That was his first venture into Triple-A."

Sisk was also in camp last year, but he didn't have much of a shot then. From Scout.com, "Brandon Sisk made two one-inning appearances out of the Royals’ bullpen this spring, surrendering one earned run on two hits while fanning a pair of hitters and walking none. The 25-year-old southpaw also played his 2010 season with the Naturals, posting a 4.46 ERA and nine saves while ringing up 63 batters in 68.2 innings pitched"
