Bobby Witt Jr.
SS - KC - MiLB
Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports Royals top prospect Bobby Witt Jr. will be given every opportunity to make the Opening Day roster in 2022.
Curiously, Morosi added that Witt would be competing for the starting third base job. The team still has Adalberto Mondesi and Nicky Lopez on the left side of the infield, but Witt is in a class of his own when it comes to talent within the Royals' organization. Arguably the top prospect in all of baseball, Witt hit 33 homers and stole 29 bases between Double-A and Triple-A this past summer. He'll be a very hyped redraft selection come spring drafts. Of course, his dynasty stock is already well established.
The Royals promoted top prospect SS Bobby Witt Jr. to Triple-A Omaha.
Witt got off to a slow start at Double-A to begin the minor league season, but he's been on fire as of late. The promotion is well deserved, and there's certainly a chance he's up in the big leagues later this season. Witt might not be worth stashing just yet, but he's a must-add player if/when the Royals call him up.
Royals top prospect SS Bobby Witt Jr. stole two bases during Sunday's game for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.
Witt went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored as well. The 21-year-old now has 11 homers and 11 steals through 38 games on the minor league season. He'll definitely be in the majors by early-2022 at the latest, and there remains an outside chance that he gets called up before the '21 campaign comes to an end.
Royals top prospect SS Bobby Witt launched his first career Double-A homer on Wednesday.
Witt finished the game 3-for-4 with two runs scored. He had been off to a slow start in his first taste of Double-A, but the former No. 2 overall pick is a highly talented player who is fully expected to turn things around. He's one of the best prospects in baseball and a 2021 debut isn't entirely out of the question.
Royals SS prospect Bobby Witt Jr. went 1-for-4 with a walk and two stolen bases on Wednesday night.
Witt is off to a slow start at the plate but he has played just two games. It's great to see him running, as it's another remind of his five-category fantasy upside. Currently playing in Double-A, the former No. 2 overall pick could arrive in the majors later this summer should everything go as planned.
