Mike Montgomery, Bubba Starling Sit Atop Royals Prospect List For Baseball America

The latest Top 10 Prospects list for the Kansas City Royals is out from Baseball America and a starting pitcher sits atop of a vaunted farm system. That's good news for a team that could use an ace in the making. Mike Montgomery is the pitcher of note and he's No. 1 for the Royals in a system that's ready to produce a number of big leaguers over the next few years. In addition to Montgomery, local product Bubba Starling is immediately No. 2 and he has yet to even get started after signing late last season. Wil Myers is often cited as the top prospect for the Royals and he comes in at No. 3 on J.J. Cooper's list. The complete list is below:
