Could be locking up the Royals 5th spot in the rotation. Any (good) thoughts on this kid?

Big Royals fan here. I think there’s a very good shot he makes the team but it’ll be as a middle reliever. It’s been painful to follow his career as there aren’t many pitchers who have a list of injuries as long as Zimmer’s by the age of 27. He’s got a plus fastball and a really pretty curve and could potentially make a good closer but the odds of him staying healthy long enough to get that chance aren’t great. There’s no harm in putting him on your watch list or whatever but I wouldn’t get carried away.

Looks like he's going to be in the bullpen not rotation.

He has less than 300 IP in his minors career.  He'll need to build up quite a bit to ever make it into the rotation.  I'd guess he'll end up as a back of the bullpen arm for high leverage situations.
