Welcome to Kings of Kauffman’s “Projecting the Prospects” series for 2020. We’ll be reviewing each of the organization’s Top 30 prospects and projecting their best, worst and most likely scenarios for the upcoming season. Up for today is starting pitcher Carlos Hernandez.
The KC Royals trimmed their spring training roster for the first time last week, sending a group of pitchers out via minor league options and reassignments to the club’s minor league camp. Hot prospects Jackson Kowar and Daniel Lynch are now working in the minor league part of the spring complex while Scott Blewett, considered by some to have a shot at making the team, will instead start the season at Omaha.
