Royals SP Kris Medlen earns win in final regular season start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kansas City Royals starter Kris Medlen (6-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks across six innings in a 6-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. He struck out four.

In Medlen's eight starts, he has two stinkers and six strong outings. In the two bad starts, he allowed 13 runs on 20 hits and in the six good starts, he allowed just nine runs on 26 hits. This sort of inconsistency is hard to trust, especially considering he has yet to record more than six strikeouts in any start thus far. In any case, Medlen has made quite the comeback from Tommy John surgery and it appears he may be in line to crack the starting rotation yet again next season.

Royals' Kris Medlen gets battered by Indians in loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Royals starter Kris Medlen (5-2) surrendered nine hits, six earned runs and a walk in 3 2/3 innings in a 9-5 loss to the Indians on Saturday. He struck out four.

Medlen had not yielded an earned run over his previous two starts but promptly surrendered a two-run triple to Carlos Santana in the first, a harbinger of things to come. Although he only surrendered one walk, Medlen was under constant duress on Saturday and pitched to contact, inducing only five swings-and-misses over 76 offerings.

The veteran's night was a far cry from the dominance he wielded over the Indians' bats in a Sept. 15 start where he blanked them over 6 1/3 innings in their home park. Despite the forgettable night on the mound Saturday, Medlen has generally performed well in his return from Tommy John surgery. He will look to close out the regular season in strong fashion in his next start.

Royals SP Kris Medlen blanks Indians in 2-0 victory
by CBSSports.com Staff | CBSSports.com

Royals starter Kris Medlen (4-1) blanked the Indians over 6 1/3 innings, surrendering five hits and one walk in a 2-0 victory Tuesday.

Medlen made his fifth start after starting the season out of the bullpen following a 2014 campaign wiped out by Tommy John surgery, and the veteran turned in his best performance to date. It was the longest into the game that the 29-year-old has gone in his trips to the mound, although it was also the first start in which he failed to record a strikeout.

After a rocky Sept. 4 appearance in which he gave up 11 hits and seven earned runs over 5 2/3 innings to the White Sox, Medlen has surrendered only two earned runs and eight hits over 12 1/3 innings in two starts since. If Medlen can continue to build up his endurance over his remaining starts, he could potentially serve as a valuable component of the Royals' postseason pitching staff.

Royals new SP Kris Medlen rides run support to another win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Kris Medlen hasn't been lights-out since joining the Royals rotation, but the offense continued to provide plenty of runs Saturday in Tampa Bay and he performed well enough to win his second straight start.

Medlen allowed three runs on four hits in 5 1/3 innings to raise his record on the year to 3-0. He walked two and whiffed five.

The right-hander struggled only in the fourth, when an RBI single by Asdrubal Cabrera and two-run homer by Kevin Kiermaier turned a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 deficit.

Medlen has given up six runs in 11 1/3 innings in his two starts, but the result both times has been a win.

Royals SP Kris Medlen rewarded with win in first start since 2013
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals comeback kid Kris Medlen pitched well Monday in his first start since Tommy John surgery. He even got a bonus.

The bonus was a victory, courtesy of a huge offensive explosion after he had thrown his last pitch. Medlen allowed three runs on five hits in six innings with no walks and six strikeouts.

Such a result did not appear likely after he surrendered a two-run homer to Adam Jones in the first, but he settled down thereafter and retired the last seven batters he faced.

Medlen had tossed 11 consecutive shutout innings heading into the outing.
