Royals sign another Dominican pitcher

IGORRRRRR could be the chant at the K in 7 to 8 years with the news from that the Royals inked another Dominican prospect. Igor Feliz is a 17 year old prospect who already throws 91-93 while touching 95. Dpl also says Feliz has a good feel for his offspeed stuff but no word on his size or frame just yet. The 225k the Royals gave Feliz is essentially the same as adding a extra 5-10 rounder.

From Dick Kaegel interview with Rene Francisco “He’s been up to 95 [mph] and worked at 90 to 93 in his last outing with a good breaking ball,” Francisco said from the Dominican. “He was an outfielder and he’s just been pitching for a year and a half. We’re lucky to get him.”

I've already told you what is on the horizon as far as prospects I'll be seeing in March but I also am in the middle of creating a fun tool for Royals fans attending minor league games this year. Hopefully I'll get that finished sometime this weekend prior to he start of minor league camp opening.
