Drew Waters Activated And Making Season Debut

  • Headshot for Drew Waters

    The Kansas City Royals reinstated outfield prospect Drew Waters (back, oblique) from the 10-day injured list on Friday and optioned infielder/outfielder Nate Eaton to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move. Waters is starting in center field and batting ninth on Friday against Washington Nationals left-hander Patrick Corbin in his 2023 debut. The 24-year-old is the team's No. 6 prospect, per MLB Pipeline, and he hit .327 with two home runs and two steals in 13 minor-league rehab games for Omaha before being activated. In his first 32 big-league games in 2022, Waters hit .240 (23-for-96) with six doubles, a triple, five home runs and 18 RBI. KC figures to give him regular playing time in center field moving forward, so he's worth a waiver-wire pickup in deep-mixed leagues if you need more outfield help.
