  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Collects win over Cleveland

    Staumont (4-3) struck out one in 1.1 perfect innings to earn the win Tuesday over Cleveland.

    In what became a de facto bullpen game for Kansas City after Brady Singer (arm) left in the first inning, Staumont was able to get the last out of the eighth inning and retire the side in the ninth without trouble. The right-hander has kept runs off the board in 11 of 12 appearances in September, posting a 1.46 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and seven holds in 12.1 innings this month. For the season, he's pitched to a 2.92 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 72:27 K:BB, five saves and 16 holds through 64.2 innings, primarily in high-leverage situations.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Picks up 15th hold

    Staumont walked two and struck out two over 1.1 scoreless innings to earn a hold in Friday's 3-1 win over Detroit.

    The right-hander got the last out of the seventh inning after Jake Brentz struggled. Staumont then worked out of his own jam in the eighth to record his 15th hold of the season. The 27-year-old has added five saves and a 3-3 record across 61 appearances while logging a 3.03 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 69:27 K:BB as a reliable high-leverage option.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Responsible for loss

    Staumont (3-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and a walk in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus Baltimore.

    The 27-year-old was brought into the game with no outs and two runners in scoring position in the eighth inning. Staumont allowed both runners inherited from Joel Payamps to score, and the former put three of the four batters he faced aboard as well. Staumont ultimately took the loss when Jake Brentz couldn't escape a bases-loaded jam. The sloppy outing inflated Staumont's ERA to 3.44 with a 1.16 WHIP, 64:23 K:BB, five saves and 10 holds through 55 innings. Lately he's seen more save chances go to Scott Barlow, but Staumont remains part of Kansas City's plans in high-leverage spots.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Collects extra-innings win

    Staumont (3-2) allowed an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out two over 1.1 innings, earning the win over Seattle on Friday.

    The right-hander returned from a one-day absence on the COVID-19 injured list, and he was able to get out of the 11th inning after Richard Lovelady left two on with two outs. Staumont returned for the 12th to protect a two-run lead, and while he yielded one run on a groundout, he was able to finish off the marathon win. The 27-year-old now has a 3.33 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 59:22 K:BB through 51.1 innings, filling a versatile, high-leverage role out of the bullpen.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Activated by Royals

    Staumont (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

    Staumont was placed on the injured list for an unspecified reason Thursday, but he'll rejoin the bullpen a day later. Across his last five appearances, the right-hander has earned four holds with a 2.08 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in 4.1 innings.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Lands on injured list

    Staumont was placed on the injured list Thursday for unspecified reasons.

    No designation was provided with the move, so there's a possibility Staumont was placed on the COVID-19 injured list. If that's the case, he'll be eligible to be activated once he clears the health and safety protocols. Otherwise he'll be sidelined for at least the next 10 days.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Picks up ninth hold

    Staumont allowed a run on one hit and one walk with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning versus Houston on Wednesday.

    Staumont picked up a hold in his appearance, though the Royals didn't end up holding onto the lead. Across 10.1 innings in August, Staumont has allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks while racking up 13 strikeouts, a win and five holds. He's logged a 3.42 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 57:21 K:BB in 50 innings overall, in addition to five saves and nine holds while filling a versatile high-leverage role.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Snags win Tuesday

    Staumont (2-2) struck out three and didn't allow a baserunner in 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win versus the Yankees on Tuesday.

    The right-hander was called upon to relieve Domingo Tapia to end the sixth inning, and Kansas City pulled ahead in the bottom of the sixth. Staumont has been solid recently with just three hits allowed and seven strikeouts in a scoreless streak that stands at 4.2 innings. He owns a 3.18 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 52:20 K:BB through 45.1 innings. While he's seen late-inning work at times (five saves, five holds), he's typically entered games earlier in recent weeks.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Yields homer Sunday

    Staumont gave up a run on one hit and a walk with one strikeout in one inning versus Toronto on Sunday.

    The 27-year-old was the first reliever in the game after Brad Keller (back) exited after three innings. Staumont wasn't great, giving up a solo home run to Santiago Espinal, which ended his three-inning scoreless streak. The right-hander has seen less high-leverage work lately, with two holds and a win in 10 appearances since the start of the July. He has a 3.54 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 45:20 K:BB in 40.2 innings overall.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Picks up win

    Staumont (1-2) pitched a perfect inning and struck out two, earning the win Friday versus Baltimore.

    Staumont worked the sixth inning and was awarded the win after starter Danny Duffy was removed as a precaution after four innings. Through 35.2 innings this year, Staumont has a 3.53 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 41:18 K:BB. He's added five saves and three holds, but he hasn't picked up a save since May 19, as manager Mike Matheny seems to prefer Greg Holland for closing duties.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Takes loss Monday

    Staumont (0-2) allowed a run on one hit and one walk with one strikeout in two innings, taking the loss versus Boston on Monday.

    Staumont worked the fifth and sixth innings. He got through the former without yielding a run, but Hunter Renfroe belted a solo home run to give Boston its first lead of the game, which held up. Through seven outings in June, Staumont has yielded four runs in 8.1 innings, including two homers. He's posted a solid 3.19 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 34:17 K:BB across 31 innings. While he's picked up five saves and two holds, manager Mike Matheny seems to prefer Greg Holland for closing duties lately, although Kansas City's still very much in a committee situation in the ninth inning.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Logs 1.1 scoreless innings

    Staumont allowed a hit and a walk with one strikeout in 1.1 scoreless innings in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Yankees.

    In five outings since he's returned from a knee injury, Staumont has not logged a save, hold or decision. He's given up three runs on six hits and two walks across 5.1 innings in that span. The 27-year-old saw time as the closer earlier in the season, but it appears Greg Holland -- who blew a save Wednesday -- has moved ahead of him in the pecking order for now. Kyle Zimmer is also a possibility for saves, although he's seen a more versatile role this year.
