LEX P Christian Binford earns Royals Organizational All-Stars Honorable Mention (link)

This offseason, MiLB.com is honoring the players — regardless of age or prospect status — who had the best seasons in their organization.

Honorable mention: Christian Binford, Lexington (23 games): In a lot of organizations, the 6-foot-6 Binford would have been the top choice. Still, he cemented his place as an honorable mention thanks to a sparkling 2.67 ERA, tops in the Royals organization. The Maryland native finished fourth with 130 strikeouts while walking just 25 batters in 135 innings for the Legends.

“He doesn’t walk guys, he knows how to pitch, he’s very aggressive in the strike zone, doesn’t make mistakes in terms of giving away bases,” Sharp said. “When you’re only walking 25 guys in 23 starts — when you’re doing that, and you’re not giving up hits as well, you’re going to minimize the damage the other team can do.”
