Royals prospect RHP Kyle Zimmer struck out three batters over two scoreless innings on Monday for Low-A Lexington.
Zimmer has been working out of the bullpen at Lexington since coming off the disabled list in late May, and he’s now logged multiple innings in three of five appearances. The 23-year-old has yielded just one earned run (0.93 ERA) on seven hits in 9 2/3 innings in that span to go along with a 12/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Zimmer is still viewed as one of top pitching prospects in the minors despite logging just 4 2/3 innings last season and dealing with a litany of injuries. His best season came back in 2013 when he posted a 4.32 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, .224 opponents’ batting average and 140/36 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 108 1/3 innings (22 starts) between High-A Wilmington and Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Don’t be surprised if the Royals find a way to use him in the big leagues later this season. Jun 16 - 3:23 PM
