      Royals' Eric Skoglund: Outrighted to Triple-A

      Eric Skoglund (arm) cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.The 27-year-old was designated for assignment back in late March, but due to the transaction freeze he remained in roster limbo for the past three months. Skogland isn't eliminated from being included on Kansas City's initial 60-man player pool, but his removal from the 40-man roster will make it more difficult for him to begin the season in the majors.

      Royals' Eric Skoglund: Designated for assignment

      Eric Skoglund (arm) was designated for assignment Wednesday.The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Kansas City Royals to select Trevor Rosenthal's contract. Skoglund has been dealing with a tender arm this spring, and his expected timeline for being ready for game action is not yet clear. With a career 6.61 ERA in 109 big-league innings, he's unlikely to be in high demand on the waiver wire.

      Royals' Eric Skoglund: Nearing mound work

      Eric Skoglund (arm) was trending toward throwing off a mound when spring training was postponed, but he was not nearing game action, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.He is dealing with some tenderness in his throwing arm, and it sounds like he was going to open the year on the injured list. The injury made Skoglund a long shot to break camp in the rotation, but the hiatus could give him enough time to get back to 100 percent and possibly stretch out to the point that he could be an option for the fifth starter's spot when play resumes.

He struck out one.A three-run blast by Anthony Santander in the third inning was the big blow, but Skoglund was hardly alone in getting hit hard by Baltimore on the night.

      Royals' Eric Skoglund: Remains in rotation

      Eric Skoglund is scheduled to make his next start Friday against the Orioles.Confirming what was already widely anticipated, Skoglund will receive a second turn through the rotation after limiting the Indians to two runs over five innings last weekend in his 2019 debut with the Kansas City Royals. The soft matchup with the 44-89 Orioles might be enough to make Skoglund an interesting streamer, even though his career numbers in the majors (5.90 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 6.1 K/9 in 93 innings) would argue otherwise.
