Zimmer makes his debut with Surprise Royals
KANSAS CITY -- First-round Draft pick Kyle Zimmer made his professional debut on Friday with the Surprise Royals.

Zimmer, a right-hander, tossed two innings for the Royals' Rookie League club, allowing two hits and striking out three Arizona Giants.

The Royals selected Zimmer with the fifth overall pick in June's First-Year Player Draft out of the University of San Francisco. Zimmer was recovering from a groin injury when he was drafted, and members of the Royals' player development staff said on the day he signed that it would be a few weeks before he would make his debut.

Royals general manager Dayton Moore said after Zimmer signed that the right-hander could end this season in the Midwest League and start next season in the Carolina League.
