The Royals signed first baseman Chris DeVito as an eighth-round pick in 2016 out of New Mexico. He didn't take long to make his mark in pro ball this season.

The 22-year-old DeVito, who bats lefthanded, began the season at low Class A Lexington but earned a quick promotion to high Class A Wilmington. He hit .347/.374/.702 with a South Atlantic League-leading 11 home runs in 30 games prior to the bump.
