Kansas City Royals Prospect Debuts in 2020: Foster Griffin
Foster Griffin was a late first round pick by the Royals in 2014 and he got to make his MLB debut on his 25th birthday. Pretty cool, right?
What was even cooler was how dominant Griffin was in his debut. The Orlando native threw 1.2 innings of relief in his debut and didn’t allow a single run while striking out one batter. He was looking like he could go at least another inning, if not more, until it was obvious he had sustained an injury.
Unfortunately that was the case for Griffin, as he had a forearm strain and was pulled from the game. He has since landed on the 60-day injured list and hopefully the former first rounder gets to come back and pitch again during the 2020 season.
Griffin could be a nice relief option for this team moving forward and maybe – just maybe – he could end up in the starting rotation. The sky is the limit for Foster Griffin and the Royals are lucky to have him.
