2016 Draft Pick Series: Nicky Lopez

Nicky Lopez was selected by the Royals in the 5th round (163rd overall) of Friday’s 2016 MLB June Amateur Draft. A 5-10 shortstop, Lopez comes to the Royals from Creighton University, where he was second team All-Big East in 2016 after hitting .306 (.387 on base) with 11 doubles, five triples and two home runs. Known as near big league ready with the glove, the Chicagoland native joined Dave O less than 72 hours after being drafted to talk about the best Chicago Style Pizza, coming back from a torn meniscus (and surgery) in just eight games, his pre-draft workout at “The K” and lots more!
