Chiefs Add Kaminsky; 1st Rd History; Sunday Game Notes
The Chiefs added Cardinals 2013 first rounder Rob Kaminsky to the roster Sunday and he will get the start in Cedar Rapids today at 2:05 p.m. Here are Sunday’s Game Notes including Kaminsky’s pitcher page and full lineup:
The Chiefs go for the series win today as Kelly, McElroy and Herrera get day’s off. The Chiefs have son three straight series since being swept in Fort Wayne. Win or lose this is already a winning roadtrip for the Chiefs but 5-2 sounds a whole lot better than 4-3.
Kaminsky is the Chiefs first 1st round pick since Javy Baez was at shortstop in 2012. He is the 25th 1st rounder out of the regular June drafts in Chiefs history. The list below also includes the now defunct January draft and June supplemental draft plus the Supplemental First rounders in the current format.
|1983||Angels||Byron Kemmerling||15||June Supp|
|1985||Cubs||Ron Ewart||4||June Supp|
|1999||Cards||Nick Stocks||36||Supp. Rd Pick|
|1999||Cards||Chris Duncan||46||Supp. Rd Pick|
|2006||Padres||Kyler Burke||35||Supp. Rd Pick|
|2007||Cubs||Josh Donaldson||48||Supp. Rd Pick|
|2008||Cubs||Ryan Flaherty||41||Supp. Rd Pick|
|2010||Cards||Tyrell Jenkins||50||Supp. Rd Pick|
|2012||Cards||Patrick Wisdom||52||Supp. Rd Pick|
|2012||Cards||Steve Bean||59||Supp. Rd Pick|
Kaminsky’s addition gives the Chiefs three 19-year olds and three top 10 Cardinals prospects with Carson Kelly and Alex Reyes. Kaminsky is the youngest of the trio, four days younger than Reyes.
The Chiefs will start Alex Reyes on Monday against Beloit with Arturo Reyes going on Tuesday and Jimmy Reed on Wednesday. Departing Chiefs RHP Nick Petree leaves with a 2-0 record, a 1.29 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 21 innings. He is my guest on the pregame show today at 1:50 at http://www.peoriachiefs.com/listenlive and on the Chiefs, MiLB and Tune-In Radio Apps. Congrats to Nick and welcome to Rob!
