    Royals sign Bobby Witt Jr. to an 11-year, $288.7 million contract extenstion, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

    The deal also includes a club option after the 11th season that would tack on three years and $89 million to the contract, giving it a 14-year, $377 million ceiling.

    The contract also gives Witt four player opt-outs after each of years seven through ten.

    Cole Ragans since being traded to KC (came over in the Aroldis trade):

    47.7 IP, 35 H, 8 ER, 11 BB, 63 K, 1.51 ERA, 1.64 FIP, 4-1 W/L.

    On a BA podcast, they said he could be a top ten SP next year. Wow!

    Greinke is just 38 strikeouts away from 3000 for his career. Looks like he's not going to make it since he is averaging less than 4 K's per start this year.

    However, he did get his 200th win back in 2019.

    Hard to believe he's pitched 20 years in the bigs. So many younger fans, like my son, have no idea how great he once was, and just think of him as a scrub.

    As a positive I guess Pratto's playing time is assured going forward.
    Seemed pretty assured anyway but this iced it. Too bad for Pasquantino. And not as if KC needed any bad breaks.

    After tonite's start, Jordan Lyles is now 0-9 w a 7.30 ERA. When the O's signed Kyle Gibson, I thought "They let one Jordan Lyles go and signed another one who is both older and more expensive. They should have just kept the one they had". Good thing I'm not the O's GM. Gibson is 6-3 w a 3.82 ERA.

    Great hire -- excited to see how Q works with this young roster. I don't know if they've made a pitching coach hire yet, but anything is an upgrade from Cal Eldred

He's not listed on the team Top 30 by either BA or MLB. But an amazing feat nonetheless.
    Not quite. Beltran was 28-0 for Houston but he was 14-3 for the KC the same year, so his 2004 MLB stats are 42-3.

    Still, it's interesting that Beltran was also a Royal. The youngest player with World Series stats is Adalberto Mondesi, age 19 in 2015. He was in the WS before his regular season MLB debut.
