The Kansas City Royals farm system may not be what it once was, but it has certainly improved over the past two years.

At the beginning part of the decade, the Kansas City Royals farm system was the envy of baseball. The years of miserable finishes had led to a plethora of high draft picks, and that talent was evident. Even as the likes of Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, and Danny Duffy found their way to the majors, the Royals still had a strong farm system.

Eventually, time took its toll. Continued promotions to the majors thinned the ranks, and the Royals trades during their World Series run in 2015 took out what was left. The Kansas City farm system, once one of the jewels of baseball, was a shell of its former self.

While it is not back to its former glory, the Royals have done a tremendous job in rebuilding their minor leagues. Bolstered by solid drafts, and the Royals struggles at the major league level, the farm system is starting to improve. While it is not quite where it was a decade ago, the Royals have come a long way in the past couple of years.

At some point soon, the fruits of the latest focus on the minors will pay off at the major league level. Let’s take a look at some of those players who could make an impact on the Kansas City Royals future.
