    • The Royals reassigned Kowar to their minor-league camp Monday. Kansas City sent several of its top prospects back to minor-league camp Monday, as Kowar was reassigned along with infielder Bobby Witt, outfielder Kyle Isbel and pitcher Daniel Lynch. Kowar will likely open the 2021 campaign at Triple-A Omaha after posting a 3.51 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 78:21 K:BB across 74.1 innings at Double-A Northwest Arkansas in 2019.

    • Kowar will join the Royals' major-league squad for spring training. Were it not for the minor-league season being canceled last year, Kowar could be knocking on the door of the big leagues already or could potentially have already debuted. He closed 2019 with 13 starts for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, recording a 3.51 ERA. He may not be given serious consideration for an Opening Day roster spot, but he stands a good chance of debuting this year if he looks good in the minors.

    • Kowar will be a part of the Royals' 60-man player pool this season, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports. One of the best pitching prospects in a system loaded with quality starting pitching prospects, Kowar has the best changeup of the young Royals hurlers and was hitting 98 mph with his fastball this spring. He may not get the MLB reps to provide fantasy value in 2020, but Kowar could develop into a No. 2 or No. 3 starter in time.

    • Kowar threw two-thirds of an inning in his spring debut on Sunday and allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and a walk against the Indians, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. Kowar surrendered a two-run home run on a changeup he left over the plate. Perhaps more importantly than the results, however, Kowar reportedly was sitting between 95 and 97 mph with his fastball and had his curveball working as well. Among a number of promising pitching prospects in the Royals' system, Kowar is likely to begin the 2020 season at Triple-A Omaha.

    • Kowar will join the Royals' major-league spring training camp, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Kowar may not be considered for an Opening Day roster spot, but he doesn't appear to be too far away. In 13 starts for Double-A Northwest Arkansas last season, he recorded a 3.51 ERA and a 25.2 percent strikeout rate.
