With so much invested in the potential of such young players, Manager Omar Ramirez said the Royals’ front-office preaches patience and process. “It’s hard, but you get used to it, because it’s a process,” Ramirez said. “They’ve got to trust the process and we’ve got to trust the process, too. These kids are going to help us in the big leagues one day.”
