  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Caps rookie year with bang

    Pasquantino went 2-for-4 a solo home run in Wednesday's loss against the Guardians.

    The rookie capped off a solid start to his career with a two-hit effort, including a solo home run in the first inning. The homer, his 10th of the season, capped off a season-ending hot streak that saw Pasquantino hit .408 (29-for-71) with two home runs and a 6:11 K:BB over his final 19 games.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Records first steal

    Pasquantino went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Monday's 5-2 extra-inning win over the Guardians.

    Pasquantino's sixth-inning steal was the first of his big-league career. The rookie first baseman has a much stronger reputation as a slugger, but he picked up nine steals across 189 minor-league contests in the last two years. He's done well in the majors this year, posting a .288/.379/.436 slash line with nine home runs, 25 RBI and 23 runs scored in 70 contests, and he should have the inside track to be the Royals' starting first baseman in 2023.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Gets aboard four times

    Pasquantino went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Guardians.

    Over his last 14 games, Pasquantino has produced eight multi-hit efforts while going hitless only once. However, he hadn't driven in a run for five games prior to Sunday. The rookie first baseman's impressive surge of late has lifted his season slash line to .291/.381/.441 with nine home runs, 25 RBI, 23 runs scored and 10 doubles through 286 plate appearances. He'll look to keep up the hot hitting with three more games against Cleveland to end the campaign.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Snaps homer drought Saturday

    Pasquantino went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday.

    Pasquantino entered the contest with no long balls over his previous 19 games, though he had recorded a healthy .302/.400/.365 slash line during that stretch. The big first baseman snapped the homer drought in the first inning, belting a two-run shot to right field to put the Royals on the board. Pasquantino has 27 total homers between the minors (18) and majors (nine) this season after hitting 24 between High-A and Double-A last year.

  • Royals' Vinnie Pasquantino: Rehab assignment on tap

    Pasquantino (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

    Pasquantino hit on the field prior to Friday's matchup against Detroit and will return to game action in the minors a day later. Assuming he feels good after playing at the Triple-A level, it wouldn't be surprising to see him return from the injured list early next week.

    Kansas City placed Pasquantino on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right shoulder discomfort.

    The Royals won't mess around with this injury to one of their best young players. As it is still being labeled as discomfort, this could be a short-term absence. He is eligible to return Sept. 2 in Detroit.
