Is his value low or are there other issues? Maybe the Royals realize they rushed him and screwed up his confidence. Maybe the Royals don't know what to do with him. I would guess he is now just a talented prospect who will be nurtured with kid gloves, similar to Homer Bailey. Rick Ankiel has to be on people's minds. He has a talented arm, but his mind is a question mark.
