  • Royals' Tyler Gentry: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    The Royals reassigned Gentry to minor-league camp Tuesday.

    Gentry enjoyed a breakout season in the minors last season, slashing .321/.417/.555 over 331 plate appearances upon joining Double-A Northwest Arkansas. The 24-year-old outfielder struggled this spring, so it's clear there's still work to be done before he can contribute in the majors. The Royals could send him back to Double-A, but he will likely be promoted to Triple-A Omaha for the start of 2023.

  • Royals' Tyler Gentry: Enjoys breakout 2022

    Gentry hit .326/.422/.542 with 21 homers, 10 steals, 86 RBI, 79 runs and a 60:105 BB:K over 108 games split between High-A Quad Cities and Double-A Northwest Arkansas this season.

    The 23-year-old outfielder was a little old for High-A, so it made sense to take his .950 OPS there with a grain of salt, but he was even better against more age-appropriate competition in Double-A, putting up a .972 figure. A third-round pick out of the University of Alabama in 2020, Gentry followed up a decent but injury-abbreviated 2021 campaign with a breakout this season. A big, strong hitter who probably fits best in right field, Gentry may force his way into the Royals' outfield conversation as soon as the middle of next season. Sleep on him at your own risk.

  • Royals' Tyler Gentry: Earns weekly honors

    Gentry was named the Texas League Player of the Week on Tuesday.

    Gentry hit .435 with four homers, 11 RBI, nine runs scored, a stolen base and two doubles in his last six games. He's had no trouble adjusting to Double-A pitching so far -- the outfield prospect is slashing .311/.389/.721 in 16 contests since he was promoted from High-A Quad Cities on June 14. He'll likely close out the year at Northwest Arkansas, but he's already tearing through the minors in his second year of affiliated ball on the strength of his hitting.

  • Royals' Tyler Gentry: Climbs to Double-A

    The Royals promoted Gentry from High-A Quad Cities to Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Tuesday, Anne Rogers of reports.

    Gentry received the call to Double-A after he slashed an impressive .333/.434/.516 with a 13.5 percent walk rate in 152 plate appearances during his second tour of the High-A level. The 23-year-old is regarded as a shaky defender in the corner outfield, so being able to consistently hit for power and drawing walks at a steady clip will likely be the key to him advancing through the Kansas City farm system.
