Royals' Jake Junis: Optioned after Sunday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

The right-hander will head back to Omaha after getting the start in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader. Junis went 4.2 innings against the Twins, surrendering two earned runs while racking up four strikeouts. His move down to Triple-A opens a roster spot for Game 2 starter Ian Kennedy.

Royals' Jake Junis: Recalled ahead of Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and will start Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Twins, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

With the Royals taking on the Twins in a doubleheader Sunday, Junis will be called upon for a spot start. The 24-year-old had made two clean relief appearances for the big-league club earlier this season, but Sunday's start will be the first of his career. In five starts with Triple-A Omaha, Junis holds a 3.07 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and an impressive 36:7 K:BB ratio. He'll face a Twins team that has posted a collective .759 OPS as a team against right-handed pitching this season.

Royals' Jake Junis: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

Just a day after being recalled from Omaha, Junis is headed right back. Junis has thrown two shutout innings over two games in the majors this season. He'll figure to return to the starting rotation at Omaha, where he owns a 3.52 ERA and 1.13 WHIP for the year.

Royals' Jake Junis: Earns first career win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis walked a pair -- one of which was intentional -- and struck out two over a scoreless inning to earn his first career victory Monday in Tampa Bay.

The 24-year-old right-hander picked up the win just hours after being recalled Tuesday. Junis danced around a leadoff walk like a veteran, suggesting he's ready to handle himself in the bigs. After the second batter of the 11th inning laid down a successful sacrifice bunt, Junis intentionally walked Corey Dickerson to set up a potential double play. Rather than induce a grounder, the rookie proceeded to strike out two of the Rays' most dangerous hitters -- Brad Miller and Evan Longoria. Whether Junis sticks around remains to be seen, but it's likely the organization would rather continue developing him as a starter at Triple-A Omaha than work out of the Royals bullpen.

Royals' Jake Junis: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

He has been used as a starter at Triple-A, and the thinking is that he could offer some depth behind Tuesday's starter, Chris Young, who is unlikely to log a quality start. Junis replaces Scott Alexander, who was placed on the 10-day DL with a hamstring strain, in the Royals' bullpen. The 24-year-old righty has a 3.52 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB in 23 innings in the Pacific Coast League.
