      Royals' Edward Olivares: Starting in CF on Thursday

      Edward Olivares was called up and will start in center field while batting sixth Thursday against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.He was traded to Kansas City as the headliner in the trade that sent Trevor Rosenthal to the Padres. The trade gives Olivares a much better chance of getting everyday at-bats, and it's encouraging to see the righty hitter getting his first start for his new team against right-hander Dylan Cease. Olivares' sprint speed ranks in the 92nd percentile, so he should be a threat on the bases. He also boasts notable pop, hitting 18 home runs while stealing 35 bases in 127 games at Double-A last year.

      Royals' Edward Olivares: Heading to Kansas City

      Edward Olivares, along with a player to be named later, is being traded to Kansas City in exchange for Trevor Rosenthal, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.Olivares was one of the top-ranked prospect outfielders in the Padres' farm system but did not showcase any eye-popping ability during his time with the Padres this season. He hit .176/.222/.294 with a home run and three RBI in 34 at-bats but does possess the speed and arm strength to play any of the three outfield positions. The Kansas City Royals have an aging Alex Gordon in left field -- Gordon is currently struggling at the plate with a .196/.267/.315 slash line across 92 at-bats. There are no guarantees that Olivares takes over the 13-year-old veteran's spot in left, but there's definitely a chance he could compete for playing time there right away if he receives a callup.
