Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Makes return trip to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

The right-hander will head back to the big leagues to take the spot of Eric Skoglund in the bullpen. McCarthy has been impressive with the Storm Chasers this season, sporting a 2.33 ERA in 20 appearances, and he also has four scoreless appearances in the big leagues under his belt. He'll look to carry these successes into a middle relief role for Kansas City.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

McCarthy looked excellent out of the bullpen during his four outings with the Royals, tossing 6.1 scoreless innings while giving up three hits and one walk. However, after recording seven outs Tuesday against the Astros, McCarthy likely wouldn't have been available for the next couple of days, so he'll head back to the minors in exchange for a fresher arm in Scott Alexander (hamstring), who was reinstated from the disabled list.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Throws two scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy pitched two scoreless innings and struck out one Sunday against Cleveland.

The 25-year-old remains perfect through his first three appearances of 2017. Since being recalled from Triple-A Omaha on May 29, McCarthy has logged four scoreless frames while allowing just one hit and a walk. His low-leverage role doesn't offer fantasy appeal, but the right-hander could move up the bullpen ladder if he continues pitching well.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

McCarthy will move into the bullpen in place of Miguel Almonte, who was demoted to Omaha after allowing three runs over one inning in Sunday's game against the Indians. It's expected that the 25-year-old McCarthy will work in low-leverage spots initially for the Royals after compiling a 2.53 ERA over 21.1 innings at Omaha.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Dealing well in Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy owns a strong 2.53 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 16 relief appearances (21.1 innings) with Triple-A Omaha this year.

The 25-year-old has proven worthy of his spot on the 40-man roster. McCarthy was impressive last year in the minors, too, but struggled over 10 games with the big-league club. He competed for a roster spot in spring training, and at his current pace, McCarthy will undoubtedly earn himself a promotion again in 2017.
