Kyle Zimmer pushing for OD roster spotMarch 15, 2019 | 09:18 AM

Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that Kyle Zimmer has "thrown himself legitimately into the mix" for an Opening Day bullpen spot.

It would be a great story to see the former top prospect resurrect his career, but obviously he remains a wild card at this point.
