Royals send 4 top prospects, including Witt, to minors camps

(AP)-The Kansas City Royals reassigned four of their top prospects to their minor league camp Monday, including touted shortstop Bobby Witt Jr., whose brilliant spring training nearly caused the club to put him on the opening day roster. The Royals also sent outfielder Kyle Isbel and pitchers Jackson Kowar and Daniel Lynch to the minor league camp. All four are among the top 10 prospects in the Royals system. Keeping them off the big league roster also keeps their service time from starting, potentially giving the club an extra year of control.
