    Former Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is close to a deal with the Royals, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed Thursday. Harvey, whose last contract was a minor league deal with the Athletics before he elected to enter free agency after the 2019 season, is expected to report to the team’s minor league system to begin working toward a comeback to the majors. The Royals will be the fourth team in the last two years for Harvey. After the Mets drafted him seventh overall in 2010, Harvey was successful through his first three years within the organization. After he underwent Tommy John surgery in 2013, Harvey began a steady decline that culminated to a second surgery in 2016 to resolve a shoulder injury. His struggles continued through the 2017 season, including a three-game suspension for violating team rules. It was later revealed Harvey didn’t show up to Citi Field and was suspected to have been partying the night before. The Mets eventually removed Harvey from the starting rotation and placed him in a bullpen role before designating him for assignment in...

    A royal expert has claimed that Kate Middleton is more similar to the Queen than Princess Diana, due to her introvert nature and love of the outdoors.  Speaking about the Duchess of Cambridge, 38, to Yahoo News, royal author Victoria Murphy said that she was 'still more of a team player than leader', but had grown in confidence since joining the Royal Family almost a decade ago.  The commentator noted Kate's 'quiet self-assurance' and 'ability to compartmentalise', and predicted that those qualities would 'suit her future role' as Queen.  Royal author Angela Levin also observed that the Duchess has become more 'relaxed' since her start with the royal family, and believes that becoming a mother helped her confidence grow.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals for years valued high school prospects in the first-year player draft, guys with an abundance of raw athleticism, undeveloped talent and what those in the scouting profession would call “high upside.” The trouble is such risks often carry even lower floors. They are risky propositions that often fail to pan out. Whether by circumstance or intention, that approach to the draft has changed dramatically in recent years, and it continued with the Royals scooping up more developed college talent in this week’s draft. They spent first-round picks on Texas A&M left-hander Asa Lacy and Baylor infielder Nick Loftin, then added Alabama outfielder Tyler Gentry, Oregon State left-hander Christian Chamberlain and Eastern Illinois right-hander Will Klein among their four remaining picks. “These guys are absolute winners,” Royals general manager Dayton Moore said on a Zoom call with reporters. “They’re articulate. They’re prepared. Speaking to Nick, the only thing he kept talking about was how he was going to win a World Series. This kid is a champion. That’s just a perfect...
