"The only guys that haven't reported yet are guys that are going to come for extended spring that are part of our Dominican program," said J.J. Picollo, assistant general manager of scouting and player development. "They're working out at their camp there and then join our extended group in early April."
There will be intrasquad games from Thursday through Tuesday and the first game against another team is March 14.
"The intrasquad games are more for the pitchers to get their pitches in and the hitters get some looks at some pitching," Picollo said.
Royals manager Ned Yost said that no roster cuts are expected in the Major League camp until after Friday's day-night split-squad games against Cleveland and Colorado. The Royals are already missing seven players from the big league camp; they're playing in the World Baseball Classic.
