Player Outlook
Nick Loftin hit a productive, if unspectacular, 14 home runs with a .788 OPS at Triple-A last season. He then hit .323 with an .803 OPS over 68 plate appearances in his first big-league audition. His MLB numbers, especially fueled by a .392 BABIP, likely won't last over a longer sample. Loftin has played all around the infield in his minor-league career, so he could win a utility role with the Royals this spring. He has had low strikeout rates (13.1% K% at Triple-A) with strong walk rates (9.7% BB% at Triple-A), so he could maintain an above-average batting average.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Summoned from Triple-A

    The Royals recalled Loftin from Triple-A Omaha on Sunday. He'll take the 26-man active roster spot of infielder Michael Massey (back), who was placed on the 10-day injured list. Between the majors and Triple-A level, Loftin has seen time at four different defensive spots (first base, second base third base and left field), so he'll provide Kansas City with some versatility off the bench while he's up with the big club. Most of his starts will likely come versus left-handed pitching.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Sent to Triple-A

    The Royals optioned Loftin to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday. The transaction likely clears the way for infielder Michael Massey (back) to be activated from the 10-day injured list, but the Royals will wait until shortly before Friday's game against the Orioles before announcing a corresponding move. Loftin has slashed .276/.371/.276 over 13 games in a part-time role for Kansas City this season.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Drives in three in win

    Loftin went 2-for-3 with a walk, three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 11-7 win over the Mets. Loftin has seen most of his playing time at second base this season, sharing the keystone with Adam Frazier. After logging just two hits and one RBI over his first eight games, Loftin has found his swing a bit with three hits and five RBI across his last two contests. He's batting .250 with six RBI, five runs scored and no extra-base hits or stolen bases through 26 plate appearances. Loftin may drop into a utility role or lose his 26-man roster spot altogether once Michael Massey (back) is activated from the injured list.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Secures roster spot

    Manager Matt Quatraro informed Loftin that he made the Royals' Opening Day roster, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports Saturday. Loftin will provide cover all around the infield. His best chance for playing time early in the season is at second base, as Michael Massey (back) is set to begin the season on the injured list. Loftin provides a right-handed bench bat for the Royals, so he shouldn't be expected to see more than a short-side platoon role initially. Loftin has hit .325 over 16 Cactus League games, displaying his solid contact-hitting skills.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Swipes first career bag

    Loftin went 2-for-3 with two RBI and his first MLB stolen base in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Guardians. Getting the start at second base and batting sixth against Cleveland lefty Logan Allen, Loftin collected multiple hits for the third time in his last four games to boost his slash line in the majors to .359/.419/.538 through his first 43 plate appearances. The 24-year-old's .270/.344/.444 line at Triple-A this year is a better reflection of his talent level, but after going 29-for-35 on steal attempts in the high minors in 2022, he could make some additional contributions in that category over the final days of the season.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Impactful off bench

    Loftin went 2-for-2 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the White Sox. Loftin has hit safely in seven of his nine games so far, and three of them have been multi-hit efforts. He helped the Royals extend their lead with a couple of run-scoring knocks after entering as a pinch hitter for Nick Pratto in the seventh inning. Loftin is batting .345 (10-for-29) with six RBI, six runs scored, five doubles and a triple through 33 plate appearances. He's seeing time primarily at second base and first base, which has led to smaller roles for Pratto and Michael Massey.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Gaining foothold in lineup

    Loftin will start at first base and bat eighth in Tuesday's game against the White Sox. Loftin has now cracked the lineup in four of the Royals' past five games, making starts at three infield spots and designated hitter during that span. Though the Royals may not commit to Loftin as their top option at any one position, the 24-year-old's versatility should allow him to hold down a near-everyday role so long as he continues to swing a hot bat. Through his first three big-league games, Loftin has gone 5-for-10 with three doubles, two walks, three runs and three RBI.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: On base three times in debut

    Loftin went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 13-2 win over the Red Sox. Loftin's MLB debut can be considered a success as he was one of six Royals with multiple hits in the blowout win. The infield prospect slashed .270/.344/.444 with a 13.1 percent strikeout rate and 9.7 percent walk rate over 82 games with Triple-A Omaha this year. With the Royals playing out the string, there should be plenty of chances for Loftin to get accustomed to the majors in September, especially since he boasts defensive versatility.

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Promotion coming

    The Royals will promote Loftin from Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. The 24-year-old prospect has spent all season with Omaha, slashing .270/.344/.444 with 14 homers and 56 RBI across 358 plate appearances. Loftin has played every position except catcher and right field during his minor-league career, so his defensive versatility could buy him consistent playing time in a Royals lineup that ranks 28th in OPS this season (.686).

  • Royals' Nick Loftin: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    The Royals reassigned Loftin to minor-league camp Tuesday. The 24-year-old infield prospect reached Triple-A for the first time last year, though he recorded just a .639 OPS over 168 plate appearances while there. His spring results weren't much better, but the Royals will likely keep him in Triple-A for the start of 2023.
