Bubba Starling In The Spotlight At Royals Spring Training

Royals prospect Bubba Starling is in high demand at Royals spring training if you count the autograph seekers that are lined up daily looking for the 19 year old's signature.

"Some of those people have been lined up there every day," he said. "One day, I stopped, and I was there for 30 minutes. Since then, I've just kept on going."

Starling is leaning on his elder teammates for advice in handling situations like that and others during his first camp with the Royals. The attention is deserved with Starling becoming one of the most highly touted prospects in a prospects rich Kansas City farm system.

The team still hasn't decided and likely won't make a decision until the end of March as to whether Starling will stay behind in extended spring training or be shipped out to a full season minor league affiliate like Class A affiliate Kane County.
