Royals' Eric Skoglund: Sent back to Omaha
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Skoglund was relegated to the bullpen after two rough starts, but instead of sticking in the majors, the Royals will have him head back to Omaha to continue developing as a starter. He could be in line for a spot start in the near future if the Royals need one, but in the meantime, right-hander Kevin McCarthy will take his spot on the active roster.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Relegated to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund will not make his scheduled start Thursday and will be moved into the Royals' bullpen, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

Skoglund was penciled in as the starter for Thursday's game against the Angels, but will be shifted to the bullpen as Matt Strahm takes his upcoming start. Skoglund was impressive in his first start on May 30 but had struggled during his previous two outings. He currently holds a 5.59 ERA and 1.86 WHIP over 9.2 innings this season.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Pulled early in Friday's poor outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund gave up seven hits and two runs while lasting just 1.1 innings Friday, but got a no-decision in a loss at San Diego.

After an impressive major league debut (6.1 scoreless innings), Skoglund has given up six runs with a 3:4 K:BB over 3.1 innings in his last two outings. His next start may be back in the minors as a result.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Struggles in rain-shortened start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund (1-1) pitched two innings, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to Cleveland.

Skoglund gave up a pair of two-out, two-run doubles in the second inning to fall behind 4-0. Rainy weather made sure that his day was over, as a delay lasting one hour and 48 minutes kept him from returning for the third. Skoglund will look for a better result when he faces the Padres on Friday.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Sparkles in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund shined in his MLB debut, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out five over 6.1 innings to capture Tuesday's victory against Detroit.

It was a night to remember for the 24-year-old, who waved his cap emphatically to a standing ovation as he departed in the seventh inning. Skoglund outdueled one of this generation's greatest pitchers, Justin Verlander, in the special 1-0 victory. The big left-hander owned a 4.53 ERA over eight starts for Triple-A Omaha before Tuesday's call-up, so it's safe to say that not many could've predicted Skoglund's performance in his inaugural big-league contest. He ran his fastball in the low- to mid-90s all evening, worked in a rolling changeup and slider that both clocked in the mid-80s, and showed off a low-70s looping curve -- all while aggressively attacking the zone and displaying the poise of a veteran. A top-five pitching prospect in the Royals' system, Skoglund has been on the radar for a while, and he'll surely draw attention in AL-only and dynasty formats over the next week. The rookie will get a tough test in his next start Sunday against the Indians.
