The youth movement in the Kansas City Royals' infield continued last week, as second-base prospect Johnny Giavotella joined former Omaha teammates Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas.

Giavotella, the Royals' second-round pick in the 2008 draft, hit .322 with a .395 on-base percentage in the Double-A Texas League in 2010, and followed it up with .338 and .390 marks (albeit in a great hitter's league) at Triple-A this season to earn his promotion.

For Jason's scouting updates of Johnny Giovatella, Dave Sappelt and Matt Wieters, you must be an ESPN Insider.
