Royals' Ryan McBroom: Heading for platoon at first base?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Matheny said March 6 that McBroom and Ryan O'Hearn could begin the season in a "soft platoon" at first base, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

McBroom made his major-league debut last season and had a .293/.361/.360 slash line with five doubles in 23 games, and he showed well before spring training was suspended with a 1.026 OPS. O'Hearn struggled heavily in 2019 with a .195/.281/.369 line, but he also performed well in spring action. O'Hearn would have the clear advantage for playing time as the left-handed bat, but the potential platoon illustrates McBroom's likely roster security for the eventual start of the season.

Royals' Ryan McBroom: Three-hit night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McBroom went 3-for-4 in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Twins.

All three of McBroom's hits were single, and he wasn't able to factor into the run production. He's hit safely in seven of his last eight games, going 10-for-28 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored in that span. He's gotten on base well (.357 on base percentage) but the 27-year-old only has a .385 slugging percentage in 56 plate appearances. He did show power with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, hitting 26 homers in 117 games while with the Yankees' farm team.

Royals' Ryan McBroom: Heads to bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McBroom is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Miami.

McBroom was promoted from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday and started the last three contests, but he'll take a seat Friday after going 4-for-11 with one RBI and one walk. Jorge Soler -- who typically serves as the designated hitter -- will start in right field with the Royals playing in a National League park.

Royals' Ryan McBroom: Looking like lineup regular
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McBroom went 1-for-4 with a single in Thursday's loss to the Tigers.

McBroom was making his third consecutive start after getting the call up from Triple-A Omaha earlier in the week. He has started at first base against two lefties and in right field against a right-handed starter, slotting in either fifth or sixth in the batting order in all three starts. McBroom is 27 and doesn't exactly have a ton of pedigree as a 15th-round pick in 2014, but he had a monster year with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate (26 homers, 146 wRC+), and after acquiring him last week for international bonus pool money, the Royals seem intent on giving him a look.

Royals' Ryan McBroom: Set for big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McBroom's contract was purchased from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, and he'll bat sixth and play first base against the Tigers.

McBroom came over from the Yankees in exchange for international signing bonus money and a player to be named later or cash. The 27-year-old has been a career minor-leaguer to this point, though he posted a strong .315/.402/.574 slash line with 26 homers in 117 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. He can play first base or the outfield corners.

Royals' Ryan McBroom: Shipped to Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McBroom was acquired by the Royals from the Yankees on Saturday for international signing bonus money and a player to be named later or cash considerations.

McBroom was acquired by the Yankees back in 2017 and spent the last two seasons at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He will likely be added to the team's 40-man roster Tuesday in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft as the Royals, who drafted him in the 15th round back in 2013, want to get a good look at him during the final stretch of the MLB season. The 27-year-old is posting the best offensive season of his minor-league career with a .315/.403/.500 slash line and 25 home runs in 116 games.

Yankees' Ryan McBroom: Acquired by Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees acquired McBroom from the Blue Jays on Sunday in exchange for utility man Rob Refsnyder.

It's expected that McBroom will report to Double-A Trenton, allowing him to remain in the Eastern League, where he had been playing for New Hampshire. The 25-year-old first baseman is hitting .243/.321/.402 with 12 home runs and 54 RBI in 392 plate appearances at Double-A, but his lack of special power and positional flexibility and advanced age relative to level don't make him an especially intriguing prospect.
