Darryl Collins starts MiLB season at Low A.

Today, the Kansas City Royals presented the rosters of its farm teams. Curious where one of the biggest Dutch talents will play, yours truly checked them all. Darryl Collins will start the season at Low A.

The player that calls Curaçao Neptunus his home in Dutch baseball, will play for the Columbia FireFlies on opening day.


At the age of seventeen, Darryl broke into professional baseball as he played for the Arizona Royals. In that 2019 season, he batted a respectable .320 with seven doubles, seven triples and twenty-five RBI.

Due to COVID-19, Darryl was forced to stay in the Netherlands, where he played with Neptunus once again. In a season that wasn’t finished because the Holland Series was cancelled at a 2-0 score in games in the favor of L&D Amsterdam Pirates, Darryl hit .352 in the regular season.

Darryl and the FireFlies will start the 2021 season on the road in a six-game series against the Augusta GreenJackets on May 4. On May 11, the FireFlies will have their home opener against the Charlotte RiverDogs.
