Considered a reach as the eighth overall pick in the 2013 draft, Hunter Dozier tore up the lower levels of minor league baseball. And with the Kansas City Royals organization lacking a true big league caliber starter at the hot corner, Dozier has a chance to move quickly. However, a promotion to Double-A Northwest Arkansas Naturals saw his numbers fall dramatically from .295/.397/.429 to .209/.303/.312. Are the top-100 prospect’s upper-level struggles a sign of things to come, or a blip on the radar as he makes adjustments?
In the 2013 draft, Kansas City drafted Hunter Dozier in the first round. Considered an overdraft at the time, he clubbed the Pioneer League into submission before producing an 800-plus OPS in the South Atlantic League. With doubters silenced, Royals fans are looking to him as an answer at third base in Kansas City. The team is in first place despite a horrid season from Mike Moustakas. With “Moose” looking like a bust, is Dozier the answer at the hot corner?
