    • Brandon Maurer: Elects free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Maurer elected to become a free agent Friday after being outrighted off the Royals' 40-man roster. Maurer appeared in 37 games for the Royals this past season, posting a disastrous 7.76 ERA and 2.14 WHIP with a 31:25 K:BB across 31.1 innings. The 28-year-old right-hander will look to latch on with another organization this winter, though he'll have to pitch much better in spring training to warrant a major-league roster spot.

    • Royals' Brandon Maurer: Blows save chance
      By RotoWire Staff

      Maurer allowed three earned runs on three hits to blow the save Monday against the Tigers. Maurer got his fifth save opportunity of the season with Wily Peralta unavailable after he appeared in each of the Royals' past three games. However, he blew the chance by allowing three consecutive hits -- two doubles and a single -- with the final earned run crossing the plate after he was pulled from the game. He has now blown four of his five save opportunities this season, posting a horrific 14.25 ERA and 3.00 WHIP in the process.

    • Royals' Brandon Maurer: Gets save against Twins
      By RotoWire Staff

      Maurer got a one-out save against the Twins on Friday, working around a hit and a walk to close out Kansas City's 6-5 victory. It was the first save of the season for the right-hander, who retired Max Kepler to end the contest after allowing two runners to reach base. He's given up 16 earned runs in his 12 innings of work and blown three saves this season, so Maurer isn't a factor for fantasy purposes until he logs more innings and improves on those numbers.

    • Royals' Brandon Maurer: Squanders save opportunity
      By RotoWire Staff

      Maurer blew a save chance Saturday, allowing one run on two hits and a walk in an inning against the Astros. Manager Ned Yost turned to Maurer to preserve a one-run lead in the ninth and Maurer couldn't get the job done. This was after lefty Tim Hill successfully converted a save chance Friday -- the first save chance following Kelvin Herrera's trade to Washington. It looks like this will be a committee and Maurer has past ninth-inning experience, but he's struggled mightily at both Triple-A Omaha and in the majors this year and is probably not worth pursuing in mixed leagues unless you're desperate.

    • Maurer was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday. Maurer will head back to the big leagues after being designated for assignment in early May. Since then, the 27-year-old has been finding a groove on the rubber, posting 10 straight scoreless outings with a 10:4 K:BB across 11 innings of relief. Expect him to work out of low-leverage situations for the time being. In a corresponding move, the Royals optioned Jason Adam to the minors.
