brandon-finneganIt’s has been two+ months since I saw Brandon Finnegan playing his last game in a TCU uniform.  That was June 19 at the College World Series, just weeks after the Kansas City Royals selected him with the 17th pick in the major league draft.

And now, the first-place Royals, in the middle of their first playoff race in nearly 30 years, called up Finnegan, 21, on Monday.  He’s the first Royals draft pick to join the major league roster the same year he was drafted since 1993, the year Finnegan was born.

Good to see another CWS player make the bigs!  Go Frogs!
