#Royals prospect and 2020 1st round pick Asa Lacy continues to struggle a lot.
He's got an era over 9.00 and has more walks than K's in each of his last 4 starts and is at the Rookie level rehabbing.
Not great signs for a college arm.
Asa Lacy of @Royals falling apart on rehab at rookie ball - 4 ER, 4 BB in 2 IP on Thur, has 14 BB, 9.00 ERA in 4 G at ACL; back injury having lingering effect? See where 23-year-old LHP is in our updated #FantasyBaseball Top 500 Prospect Rankings: https://t.co/PdAXQONuuK
The Kansas City Royals are going to be a problem in the AL Central in a couple years.
Bobby Witt Jr and Vinnie Pasquantino have already arrived. Brady Singer looking like an ace.
MJ Melendez is showing future catcher abilities.
Nick Pratto, Asa Lacy soon. #TogetherRoyal
NEW — A convo with Royals director of PD Mitch Maier…
• Asa Lacy update
• Jonathan Bowlan update
• Nathan Webb update
• Thoughts on Nick Pratto, Nick Loftin, Diego Hernandez
#Royals No. 3 prospect Asa Lacy has been added to the Arizona Complex League roster on a rehab assignment.
The 23-year-old LHP was scratched from an April 23 start for Double-A Northwest Arkansas due to a back spasm and hasn't been on a MiLB mound since. https://t.co/d8hOVTqJhB
@RyanHeffernon Royals system is thin as hell. Top heavy with busts like Asa Lacy. No pitching coming. Developed 3 even decent starting pitchers in 17 years. Dayton Moore and Lonnie Goldberg whiffed on almost every picked from 2011-2017. That's why we suck. Plus we can't develop at all!
Which Royals prospect will make a top 100 list at the end of the season? Probably Asa Lacy. Probably their 2022 first round pick. Maybe Frank Mozzicato or Ben Kudrna or Carter Jensen? Doesn't feel like we'll have a ton of guys on any list.
@maxrieper @ClintScoles Here's another one from the 2020 draft.
Royals took Asa Lacy with 1st pick, Nick Loftin with comp 1st pick, then Ben Hernandez with 2nd round pick.
Cardinals took HS Masyn Winn with their 2nd round pick. Best infield arm I've seen since Matt Chapman.
NEW — Some Royals pitching notes…
• Jonathan Heasley’s consistency
• Brady Singer’s changeup
• Asa Lacy’s injury
• Jackson Kowar’s current work
• Update on Frank Mozzicato, Ben Kudrna and Shane Panzini
Asa Lacy wasn’t even getting projected to fall to us at FOUR and NO ONE was saying Detmers > Lacy before that draft now before Lacy has even thrown a pitch in the Majors we’re acting like the Royals were reaching for him. I get our coaching can’t develop but dang https://t.co/Le8TXLm3m4
I almost feel bad beating up on the Royals at this point, but it must be pointed out:
Reid Detmers was the second college LHP taken in the 2020 draft.
The first college LHP taken was Asa Lacy. https://t.co/LfQUhqp4rN
Three top Royals prospects have been battling injuries lately, but Asa Lacy, Nick Pratto and Will Klein should be back in action before long.

@RichWilsonP361 3 Royals prospects:
Kyle Isbel- ROS outlook?
Asa Lacy- Will he cut down the walks and get better?
Erick Pena- Wow, is there a worse player in all of professional baseball? I know that it's only 60 minor league games, but IT IS BAD!
Arguably the best pitching matchup of the day goes down in Frisco tonight.
#Royals fans, get a pre-game appetizer and check out No. 4 prospect Asa Lacy on the hill.
#Rangers fans, take in some postgame action and enjoy #LeiterDay.
Do you have an @MLBTV subscription? They’re going to add select MiLB games at no addition cost!
It starts tomorrow when the @Royals top pitching prospect Asa Lacy and the @nwanaturals visit @RidersBaseball and the @Rangers former top pick Jack Leiter
“We're starting off on Saturday, when last year's No. 2 overall Draft pick, Jack Leiter, leads the Rangers' Double-A Frisco affiliate against Northwest Arkansas and the Royals' top pitching prospect, Asa Lacy, at 7:35 p.m. ET. “ 😀 https://t.co/R77qRTnObj
Pitcher in the Royals farm system, currently in AA
Lacy has insane stuff, 13.67 K/9 in 14 starts in A+ last year
His fastballs sits upper 90s, he has three offspeed pitches, his slider is elite
His command sucks but his stuff is elite already, could become a reliever
FINAL: Wichita 5, #NWANaturals 1
#Royals' No. 4 prospect Asa Lacy struck out seven in his second start of the year, but the Naturals could not offer much in the way of run support in Sunday's loss, dropping the series to the Wind Surge.
