RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
While a move to full-season ball in 2013 seemed to be a bit of an aggressive approach, the 20-year old Almonte proved his mettle by throwing 130.2 innings while maintaining a solid 3.67 K/BB. He posted an ERA just above 5.00 during his first month at Low-A Lexington but settled down to the point where he never saw his ERA rise above 3.30 for any other month, finishing the season with a 3.10 ERA and an even more impressive 2.76 FIP. The Royals like what they've seen so far -- especially the 9.1 K/9 last year -- so expect them to continue to be aggressive with his development and start him off at High-A Wilmington in 2014.
