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, he'll 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.
