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.

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

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

Fish live in wells I guess. Thats a dirty well however.

Maybe in livewells, like the kind you keep fish in temporarily, or something, but that’s a stretch.

Yes.

Rornon, the Vernon Fish Pokemon. Moves at great speeds through the water, but as soon as it gets on land all it can do is eat money.

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.
