    • Royals' Jakob Junis: Losing streak continues
      By RotoWire Staff

      Junis (3-5) took the loss Saturday, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out six as the Royals were downed 6-3 by the Angels. It was the longest outing of the year for the right-hander, but that didn't stop Junis from losing his third straight start. He's allowed fewer than four runs only twice in his last eight trips to the mound, and he'll take a 5.69 ERA and 47:21 K:BB through 55,1 innings into his next start Friday, at home against the Yankees.

    • Royals' Jakob Junis: Hit with fourth loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Junis (3-4) took the loss after giving up five runs (four earned) on three hits and five walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings Sunday against the Phillies. Junis cruised through four scoreless frames before running into trouble in the fifth. He allowed four earned runs while recording just one out before getting yanked from the contest. The right-hander struggled to find the strike zone at times, issuing five costly free passes and tossing 51 of 96 pitches for strikes. Junis hasn't found much success of late, surrendering nine runs over the course of his last two starts, raising his ERA to 5.77 through 48.1 innings this season.

    • Royals' Jakob Junis: Hammered by Astros
      By RotoWire Staff

      Junis (3-3) took the loss Monday as the Royals were downed 6-4 by the Astros, giving up five runs on nine hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out three. After a couple of solid starts, Junis fell victim to the long ball once again. The right-hander continues to live around the strike zone, having walked more than two batters only once in eight outings, but he hasn't been fooling enough batters to thrive with that approach. He'll take a 5.52 ERA and 37:15 K:BB through 44 innings into his next start Sunday, at home against the Phillies.

    • Royals' Jakob Junis: Earns third win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Junis (3-2) allowed two runs on six hits with two strikeouts and two walks across 6.1 innings in a victory against the Rays on Wednesday. The Rays had baserunners in five of the seven innings in which Junis took the mound, but the right-hander limited the Rays to only two runs from a double in the second. Junis had a tough start to the year, but he's yielded only three runs in his last 11.1 innings (2.38 ERA) over his most recent two starts. Overall, he is 3-2 with a 5.12 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 34 strikeouts in 38.2 innings this year. His next outing is scheduled for Sunday at the Tigers.

    • Royals' Jakob Junis: Start pushed to Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Following the postponement of Tuesday's game, Junis will start one of Wednesday's games against the Rays, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Junis was scheduled to pitch Tuesday, but rain derailed that plan. As a result, he'll receive one extra day of rest before toeing the rubber.
