Good news for Royals and their fans
After a good offseason by the Royals, they continue to get good news. Jeremy Affeldt
completed minicamp in the Dominican Republic this week with no apparent reoccurrence of the problem. "I'm very, very happy with the way I saw him throw. He reported no problems," head coach Tony Pena told the Star.
Affeldt put together a decent year last year with the Royals - one of the few bright spots of their 2003 pitching staff. His ERA was 3.93 with a WHIP of 1.30 in 126 innings (36 games, 18 starts). If he can keep the blisters away he should turn out to be a very good starter for them.
