A simmering outfielder in the Kansas City Royals system, former first-round pick Bubba Starling (the fifth player selected overall way back in 2011) is slowly-but surely making his way to MLB. Starling slashed .254/.318/.426 with 10 homers at AA Northwest Arkansas, making his best progress with a career-low strikeout rate. While his bat still needs work, his glove looks ready for MLB at any time, and his natural speed gives him adequate range for center. While he looks like a fourth outfielder to us (and don't the Royals always have a wide selection of those?) there's still time, here.
