Former Greyhound Terrance Gore is continuing his climb through the Kansas City Royals’ minor league system, having been promoted to the advanced Class A Carolina League Wilmington, Del., Blue Rocks for the 2014 season.

The speedy outfielder, who led the low Class A South Atlantic League with 68 stolen bases last season for the Lexington, Ky., Legends, said he was thrilled to move up again this season.

“That’s the goal, to keep climbing the ladder,” he said Monday. “We had a good team at Lexington last year, and I think we’ll have another good team here this year.”

Another former Greyhound isn’t as fortunate, however. Catcher Tyler Roberts was released by the Milwaukee Brewers’ organization last month, so his professional baseball career may be finished.

His father, Micah Roberts, said Tyler is still working out with a high school team in Arizona, where he now lives, with hopes that he may be picked up by another organization.

“He also said he might try to catch on with an independent league team, because he still wants to play. But he’s also married with a baby now, so he’s also thinking about if it is time to move on with his life after baseball,” his father said.
