Here's some good news for the future: Two Royals minor league pitchers were named pitchers of the week in their respective leagues.â†µ
Reliever Louis Coleman, who gave up just one hit and one walks in 6 2/3 scoreless innings for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, was named Texas League Pitcher of the Week.â†µ
Left-hander John Lamb was Carolina League Pitcher of the Week after pitching Class A Wilmington to a victory over Salem. He worked 6 2/3 shutout innings and had nine strikeouts.â†µ
Striking out nine of a possible 20 batters isn't bad at all.
