Royals minor leaguer Kila Ka'aihue has put up some impressive number since landing in Omaha on May 16: hitting .314 with 12 homers and 44 RBIs through 57 games.â†µ
So he should be getting called up soon, right?â†µ
Well, ask Billy Butler.â†µ
"It kills me to see Kila sitting on the bench and not playing," Yost said after Ka'aihue was optioned to Omaha. "I think that he's a huge part of our future, and, for me, I'd much rather have him [in Omaha] getting his at-bats and playing first base."â†µ
This is a good problem to have. Unfortunately for the Royals, they haven't had this problem a whole lot in recent years.â†µ
So, like Alex Gordon, he'll wait.
