Comments from Royals' scouting director Deric Ladnier have been understandably cryptic. Kaegel's interpretation is that the Royals will lean toward a college power hitter such as Pedro Alvarez (if available) or Justin Smoak. Top pitchers as well as catchers Kyle Skipworth and Buster Posey can't be ruled out though. First baseman Eric Hosmer has been suggested as another possibility; it's still wide open.
