Bobby Witt Jr. promoted to Triple-A Omaha

The Royals promoted top prospect SS Bobby Witt Jr. to Triple-A Omaha.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Bobby Witt Jr. steals two bases on Sunday

Royals top prospect SS Bobby Witt Jr. stole two bases during Sunday's game for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Bobby Witt Jr. hits first Double-A homer

Royals top prospect SS Bobby Witt launched his first career Double-A homer on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Bobby Witt Jr. steals two bases in Wednesday's Double-A contest

Royals SS prospect Bobby Witt Jr. went 1-for-4 with a walk and two stolen bases on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Bobby Witt Jr. to begin the 2021 season in Double-A

Royals top prospect SS Bobby Witt will begin the 2021 minor league season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Fantasy Impact

Their season is scheduled to begin on May 4th. KC talked up the possibility of Witt making the big league club out of spring training, but they ultimately pulled back on that due to his lack of minor league experience. By all reports Witt has continued tearing it up at the team's alternate training site. We'll likely see him in the majors at some point this summer.
