Starling Promoted To Omaha

By  | 

Bubba Starling has been promoted to the Omaha Storm Chasers, the AAA affiliate of the Kansas City Royals.

KC's first round draft pick in 2011 had been in AA Northwest Arkansas hitting .185 before being called up on Saturday.

In the summer of 2011, Starling was in Lincoln as part of the Nebraska football team before eventually signing a deal with the Royals that reportedly was worth $7.5 million.

Starling's Omaha debut was put on hold after Saturday's game was postponed because of rain. The game will now be played as part of a doubleheader on Sunday starting at 5:05 at Werner Park.
