Royals complete second day of draft

 The Kansas City Royals completed the second day of the 2011 First-Year Rule 4 Player Draft today, selecting 29 players after drafting prep outfielder Bubba Starling in the first round (fifth overall) on Monday. 

Kansas City’s first selection of the day came in the second round (65th overall) with 18-year-old Manheim Township (Pa.) High School catcher Cameron Gallagher.  Right-hander pitcher Bryan Brickhouse, who turned 19 yesterday and is from The Woodlands (Texas) High, was the club’s third round pick (95th overall).  Another local selection, in addition to Starling, was pitcher Adam Schemenauer, a 6-foot-9 left-hander from Park Hill (Mo.) South High School.

The club selected 12 players out of high school and 17 from the college ranks today, including four junior college picks. Among the 30 players selected over the first two days, the position-by-position breakdown includes: 17 pitchers (12 right-handers, five left-handers), three catchers, five infielders and five outfielders.

Below is a complete list of the players selected by the Kansas City Royals through the first two days of the 2011 Rule 4 First-Year Player Draft.  The draft concludes with rounds 31 through 50 on Wednesday beginning at 11 a.m. CDT.
