Kansas City Royals: Top 10 Prospects

10. Chase Vallot- One of the Royals 1st round picks was used on to take the powerful prep catcher. Vallot has plus power which could translate into 20 home runs a year. I don’t know if his hit ability is good enough to show us his real power potential. He makes hard contact a good amount of the time, but needs to be more consistent. For a young player, He does have a nice approach at the plate and it could improve with more innings. I think Vallot compares well to Rays catching prospect Justin O’Conner. I think O’Conner will field better, but Vallot has a better power projection. Vallot has the making of being a great catcher, because of his plus arm. With more time as a catcher I think Vallot has the chance to shoot up the top 10.
