The Kansas City Royals 2011 1st round draft pick (#5 overall), Bubba Starling is set to start his professional baseball career with Burlington Royals.
The Royals gave the 6’4″ 180 lb. outfielder from Gardner Edgerton High School a $7.5M bonus, wooing him away from the football field and a Nebraska scholarship.
The Appalacian League begins play on June 19 and players are set to report to Burlington in the middle of next week.
