KC's Dwyer earns Pitcher of Week nod
With the news of Danny Duffy's Tommy John surgery hanging over the organization, the Royals likely could use some positive information from the mound somewhere in the system.

It came in the form of fellow lefty Chris Dwyer, this week's Prospect Watch Pitcher of the Week. Dwyer, No. 7 on the Royals' Top 20 list, appeared in two games and won them both for Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He threw a total of 12 innings, allowing just three hits and one earned run. He walked four and struck out 11.

Dwyer came in as a "reliever" behind rehabbing reliever Greg Holland on May 10 and proceeded to throw 6 2/3 no-hit innings. Four pitchers combined on a no-hitter against Springfield. Dwyer struck out five and walked two. The southpaw followed that up with another solid start on May 15, allowing one run on three hits while striking out six over 5 1/3 innings.
