If you’re a Royals fan, here’s one minor-leaguer to keep an eye on: Ryan O’Hearn.
In 817 minor-league at-bats over 214 games, O’Hearn has clubbed 48 home runs. O’Hearn was selected in the eighth round of the 2014 draft and has made a rapid rise through the Royals’ minor-league system.
O’Hearn was promoted to Class AA Northwest Arkansas and hit a home run in his first game on Wednesday. Shaun Newkirk at Royals Review shared a video of O’Hearn’s homer and it was an epic blast.
