The Kansas City Royals are falling out of playoff contention and focusing on the young talent on the roster has become a main priority. That includes power bat Vinnie Pasquantino. The rookie hit his first career home run on Friday night and showed off a gift from reliever Amir Garrett afterward.

Pasquantino detailed to reporters in the locker room the pair of Jordans Garrett gave him following the Royals' 3-1 win. It was a result of the 24-year-old asking the veteran for some advice on his outfit. Pasquantino ended up going with a plain white tee after being told it goes great with Jordans.

It was a great glimpse into how MLB teammates interact with one another when off the diamond. Pasquantino mentioned he had never even wore Jordans before, so he's "pretty happy with it." Add another highlight to what has already been a crazy week for the 2019 11th-round draft pick.

Fans have been clamoring for Pasquantino to get called up all season long and finally got their wish on Monday. Of course, the trade of first baseman Carlos Santana opened up a spot for him to play nearly every day moving forward.

Meanwhile, Garrett owns a 6.05 ERA on the year, but has put together a scoreless outing in five of his last six appearances. He'll look to keep improving on a Royals team that remains a long shot to win the World Series with odds set at +250000, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
