Royals like hard-throwing Rule 5 pick Burch Smith

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Burch Smith was so amped up that he plunked a teammate in batting practice for the Kansas City Royals.

Manager Ned Yost was more worried about the follow-up pitch from the Rule 5 draft pick, and he liked what he saw.

"A young guy, first time in camp, it tends to be a little nerve-wracking," Yost said. "First time you're throwing BP and you've got the manager and coaches standing behind. Your natural tendency is try to be impressive. Here we go, you drill somebody.
