Royals purchased the contract of LHP Brandon Finnegan from Double-A Northwest Arkansas.
Finnegan was the 17th overall pick in this year's MLB Amateur Draft and skyrocketed through the Royals' minor league system, posting a 1.33 ERA and 26/4 K/BB ratio in 27 innings between High-A Wilmington and Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He'll be a weapon in the Kansas City bullpen. Sep 1 - 2:01 PM

Date:

Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals are "seriously considering" calling up prospect left-hander Brandon Finnegan in September.

Finnegan was selected No. 17 overall in June's First-Year Player Draft and owns a 1.46 ERA and 22/4 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings over five starts and six relief appearances between High-A Wilmington and Double-A Northwest Arkansas. His reportedly feels good and his velocity is stable, so the 21-year-old could be a useful piece out of an already-dangerous Royals' bullpen in September.

Royals signed first round pick LHP Brandon Finnegan.

Finnegan signed for the slot value of $2,200,600. The hard-throwing southpaw may eventually wind up in the bullpen due to his diminutive frame, but will be brought along as a starter initially.

Royals took TCU left-hander Brandon Finnegan with 17th overall pick.

Finnegan isn't big at 5'11" and 185 pounds, but he can throw in the mid-90s and has a quality changeup. Because of his size and some past shoulder troubles, some think he'll wind up in the pen, and if the Royals want, they could get him to the majors in short order as a reliever. They'll almost certainly groom him as a starter, though.
