Royals Return Rule 5 Pick Robert Fish To Angels

The Royals have returned Rule 5 Draft pick Robert Fish to the Angels according to Bob Dutton of The Kansas City Star (on Twitter). The Yankees originally selected the left-hander in the Rule 5, but the Royals claimed him off waivers earlier this month.

Fish, 23, allowed nine runs in 7 2/3 innings between both Kansas City and New York this spring. He's struck out 9.1 batters per nine innings in his minor league career (365 2/3 innings), but he's also walked 4.2 per nine. Fish shifted to relief full-time last season, though he has only one career appearance above Double-A.

    Sounds suspicious…

      How? There has been about a million of these this week.

        Suspicious as in “fishy”. The humor was in the subtlety.

  2. Angels deserve all water-based living creatures: Salmon, Trout, Fish, etc.

    Now Fish will be reunited with Mike Trout…

  4. I thought the Royals had caught themselves a keeper in Fish, but I guess not as they threw him back…

    • Mine was a stretch, but yours worked beautifully. My hat is off to you.

      You know, Missouri has a catch and release policy. KC is in Missouri. They had to do the right thing.
