Kansas City Royals prospects Nick Pratto and Bobby Witt Jr. have both been promoted to Triple-A Omaha, the club announced this evening. Both had spent the first part of the season with Kansas City’s Double-A affiliate, Northwest Arkansas.
The Kansas City Royals announced today that outfielder Andrew Benintendi and right-handed pitcher Scott Barlow have been named Royals Player and Pitcher of the Month, respectively, for the month of May. The awards are determined by a local media vote.
The team announced the move to full capacity at the stadium along with news that single-game tickets for the Memorial Day (May 31) game against Pittsburg and for the rest of the season go on sale Thursday, May 20.
The Royals announced tonight they have acquired outfielder Andrew Benintendi and cash considerations from Boston in a three-team trade that sends outfielder Franchy Cordero and two players to be named to the Red Sox and outfielder Khalil Lee to the New York Mets, who acquired minor league right-handed pitcher Josh Winckowski and either a player to be named later or cash considerations from Boston.
