|Royals Josh Staumont is one guy I've been following. Leading the PCL in strikeouts. I think he could get a shot if the Royals fall out of it completely (which might happen). (George Bissell)|

(Ryan from Montreal)
|Yeesh. I'll say Touki. I think they're both relievers, in all honesty, but walking 15 percent of batters is no way to go through life. (Craig Goldstein)|

Thoughts on some Royals guys: Chase Vallot, Hunter Dozier, and Josh Staumont.|
(Danny G from Minnesota)
|You're welcome! Thanks for reading!
I don't think it's hyperbole to say that Staumont has one of the best pure FB/CB combos in the minor leagues, and he'll flash a CH to go with 'em. But the delivery hasn't gotten much crisper this year and he just hasn't shown signs of developing the kind of baseline command to stick in a rotation. High-leverage potential if he can take even minimal steps forward in simplifying and better repeating.
Dozier doesn't really have much left to show anyone in the minors. The swing looked stiff and powerful in San Diego. There's plus power, but it's more of a strength swing. He moved around the bag pretty good at third, though the reactions and fluidity of a quality asset at the position weren't on display when I saw him.
Vallot seems to have hit a wall offensively in the second half, but he's 19, and these things happen to young catchers. The power and on-base combo was on full display earlier this season though. I don't have anything on his D development, sorry. (Wilson Karaman)

(fawkesmulder from Zzyzx)
|Given his ludicrously high walk rate this year, my guess would be bullpen with a decent chance of never-makes-it-to-the-majors. (Scooter Hotz)|
|2015-09-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)||I've seen the Royals Josh Staumont a few times. The fastball is awesome, hiting 102 MPH and it seems like an easy enough delivery. It seems like they are giving him 2-3 innings to work with each outing and sending him out every 3-4 days which hints that they are eyeing him as a starter. That seems a bit out there maybe given his current command and lack of consistent curveball (or any other secondary pitch).
Do you think he can develop at least a second pitch, and likely a third? Seems like you could just focus on the FB/CB and try to reign in command in the hopes that he becomes Craig Kimbrel-lite

|I don't think there's a question in there, but yes. (Christopher Crawford)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
