Trevor Rosenthal Officially Makes The Royals

The Kansas City Royals officially selected relief pitcher Trevor Rosenthal's contract on Wednesday. In a corresponding move, they designated pitcher Eric Skoglund for assignment. Prior to the shutdown of spring training, Rosenthal had looked like he was back to his old self. He was hitting triple digits regularly and he struck out nine in five innings of work while walking no one. Rosenthal has fallen a long way from his high when he was one of the most intimidating relievers in the game, but this could be a chance for him to come back. While Ian Kennedy was a decent reliever for KC last year in the ninth inning, if he were to falter and Rosenthal is back to being what he can be, he could step into the role during the season and become fantasy relevant once again.

Adalberto Mondesi Back In The Lineup

Kansas City Royals star shortstop Adalberto Mondesi (shoulder) is in the lineup for the first time this spring, but it's unlikely he'll actually get to play. Mondesi is returning from shoulder surgery related to his dislocation last season, but his first crack at live pitching is likely to be rained out. There's also a feeling that Major League Baseball will be suspending spring training games in the very near future due to the coronavirus outbreak, so though Mondesi is apparently ready to go, it's not terribly likely he'll actually get to play in any games anytime soon.

Bubba Starling Showing Off His Skills

Kansas City Royals outfielder Bubba Starling, the fifth overall pick in the 2011 draft, is hitting .423/.500/.885 in spring training so far. Starling hasn't yet delivered on his abilities in professional baseball, and he struggled to a .215/.255/.317 slash line in 197 plate appearances in his first taste of big league pitching last season. His athleticism is off the charts, and he's finally starting to show it at the plate in the Cactus League. The 27-year-old could be a late bloomer, however, and could become an option in AL-only or deep mixed leagues if he earns himself a regular role in the outfield for the rebuilding Royals. Starling is still worthy of stashing in dynasty/keeper leagues, too.

Adalberto Mondesi Still On Schedule

Kansas City Royals shortstop Adalberto Mondesi (shoulder) is still rehabilitating according to schedule, but there's still no set date on when he's expected to return to game action. It's also not clear if he'll be ready for Opening Day. Mondesi experienced some soreness late this week, and so the team had his surgeon come check on the rehab process on Friday. The surgeon pronounced that Mondesi was doing just fine and on schedule, but manager Mike Matheny is already laying the groundwork for Mondesi to not be ready by the start of the season. If Mondesi isn't ready by Opening Day, it could lead to a temporary roster spot for Erick Mejia, a light-hitting speedster.

Danny Duffy Superb On Saturday

Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy was on it on Saturday when he went four innings against the Reds. Duffy struck out six and only allowed one hit during his longest outing of the spring, and the good results this spring have given the team a lot of hope for Duffy coming into the season. Duffy has struggled a bit over the last three seasons, but if he can return to form, he's only 31 years old. Currently projected to be the team's No. 2 starter behind Brad Keller, a man who has averaged just 6.42 K/9 in his two big-league seasons, Duffy could easily take back his crown as the team's ace.
