Starling has four doubles and eight runs, but he has 24 strikeouts to just nine walks. He is slugging .250.

Royals prospect might need Lasik eye surgery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals outfield prospect Bubba Starling left Class A Lexington Wednesday to travel to Kansas City, where he might undergo Lasik eye surgery, according to The Kansas City Star. Starling recently complained of having problems seeing the ball at night.

"When a player makes mention of it, we’re going to get it checked again," assistant general manager of player development J.J. Picollo said. "Upon his examination, there was a discrepancy from his last eye examination, which was in 2012, to this year’s most recent one. He’s going to see our doctor here, and he is a potential candidate for Lasik surgery. If that’s the case, we’re just going to go ahead and get it taken care of right away. The turnaround time for Lasik is so quick that he can potentially be back in the lineup maybe as early as this weekend. However, we’re not counting on it, nor do we think it’s necessary."

Starling is batting .213 with four home runs, six doubles and 17 RBI in 35 games. He's batting .300 in day games but .172 at night.
