#Marlins minor league free agent Brett Carroll has signed with the Kansas City Royals...
This will come as sad news for some FishStripers since he was a fan favorite of many. It was always special when a player would stupidly challenge his arm and BC would throw them out by a week. He was a real pleasure to watch since he only knew one gear to play the game in - reckless abandon.
But signing with another organization is really in his best interest. It had become apparent that the Marlins were never going to give him steady playing time - ever. So maybe with the Royals he will get a solid chance to play. I believe Carroll can hit, but he is one of the those players who needs to play everyday and get 4 AB a game for it all to click. He was never any good as a PH or a one AB kinda guy. Which is mainly what he did for the Marlins.
The Royals fans are in for quite a show, if they ever get a chance to see him play the outfield.
We wish him well.
