The Kansas City Royals Are the cover subject in this week’s edition of USA Today’s Sports Weekly newspaper.
A five-page spread on the Royals’ farm system, considered the best in Major League Baseball, talks about the team’s top prospects at Triple-A Omaha and Class AA Northwest Arkansas. Among the future Royals’ prospects featured in the Sports Weekly article are Mike Moustakas, currently playing third base at Omaha and thought by many to be the next minor-league star to be called up to the parent club in Kansas City.
Other highly touted prospects profiled in the article who are expected to find their way to the major leagues very soon are pitcher Mike Montgomery, second-baseman Johnny Giaviotella and center-fielder Lorenzo Cain.
There also is a feature article on Royals’ rookie reliever Aaron Crow and his circuitous route to the major leagues. Crow was born in Topeka, Kan., and played collegiate ball at the University of Missouri.
