    Payamps was placed on the bereavement list Saturday. Players may spend between three and seven days on the bereavement list, meaning Payamps should return between Tuesday and next Saturday. Carlos Hernandez will take his place in the bullpen.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Takes loss Saturday

    Payamps (2-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits without recording an out, taking the extra-inning loss Saturday versus the Blue Jays. Payamps allowed a leadoff double to Vladimir Guerrero and three straight singles after that to let a two-run lead slip away. In five appearances in July, Payamps has struggled with a 7.94 ERA and 1.94 WHIP, though he's managed a 5:0 K:BB across 5.2 innings in that span. He has a 3.41 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB in 31.2 innings overall, most often serving in low-leverage situations.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Handed loss in return

    Payamps (2-2) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out two over 1.1 innings, taking the loss Saturday versus the Tigers. Payamps pitched the eighth inning and stayed in the contest, giving him a chance at a two-inning save. That backfired when he allowed back-to-back solo shots to Victor Reyes and Riley Greene, the latter being a walkoff homer. It was a rude welcome back for Payamps after he spent nearly three weeks on the COVID-19 injured list. The 28-year-old has a 2.96 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 21:11 K:BB through 27.1 innings this year, pitching mainly in a low-leverage role. The homers he allowed Saturday were the first two he's given up all year after yielding six long balls in 50.1 innings last season.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Reinstated from injured list

    Payamps (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday. Payamps landed on the COVID-19 IL on June 13, but he spent the last week on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha. He posted a 6.23 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 4.1 innings over three minor-league appearances and will rejoin the Royals' bullpen after right-hander Daniel Mengden was outrighted to Omaha on Saturday.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Begins rehab assignment

    Payamps (illness) began a rehab assignment Friday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. Payamps has been on the COVID-19 injured list for the last 12 days. Given the relatively brief length of his absence and the fact that he doesn't have to work up to a large pitch count as a reliever, it's possible he's activated after just one or two rehab outings.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Placed on injured list

    Payamps was placed on the COVID-19 injured list for an undisclosed reason Monday. Payamps was officially placed on the IL with no injury designation, but that usually means that a player is on the COVID-19 IL. Assuming that's the case, the right-hander will be eligible to return to action as soon as he clears the league's health and safety protocols. Right-hander Daniel Mengden's contract was selected Monday to provide additional bullpen depth.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Earns win in return

    Payamps (2-1) allowed a walk over 1.1 scoreless innings Thursday, earning the win versus the Orioles. Payamps left Monday's game after getting struck by a line drive on his lower body and didn't pitch Tuesday or Wednesday. He was effective in his return, escaping a jam created by Kris Bubic and Collin Snider in the fifth inning before pitching a clean sixth. Outside of a messy outing May 27 (four runs in two-thirds of an inning), Payamps has been solid as a low-leverage option for the Royals. He has a 2.63 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB through 24 innings, and he's yet to allow a home run this season. His 3.8 BB/9 mark is too high, but his 3.02 FIP suggests regression wouldn't have a drastic impact on his numbers.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Gets drilled by liner

    Payamps left Monday's game against the Blue Jays after being struck by a line drive back up the middle, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports. Payamps was able to record the out after being struck, but he was then forced to exit the contest after being looked at briefly by the team trainer. He'll be considered day-to-day until the nature of the injury is disclosed.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Extends scoreless streak

    Payamps tossed 2.1 scoreless innings Monday versus the Diamondbacks. He allowed a hit and a walk while logging two strikeouts. Payamps was needed in a multi-inning capacity after starter Zack Greinke allowed seven runs in 3.2 innings. In his last four outings, Payamps has tossed 10.2 scoreless innings, allowing just five hits and two walks in that span. It's an improvement for him to cut down on the baserunners he's allowed -- the right-hander now sports a 1.31 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB across 20.2 innings overall in 12 appearances.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Takes win as bulk reliever

    Payamps (1-1) pitched three scoreless innings against Texas on Wednesday, allowing two hits and no walks while striking out five to earn the win. Kansas City deployed seven pitchers in the bullpen game, with Payamps entering in the third inning behind opener Gabe Speier. Payamps handled the most innings among the Royals' pitchers, throwing 39 pitches (26 of which were strikes) over three frames to pick up the win. The right-hander has posted a 2.08 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB across 13 innings on the season.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Takes extra-innings loss

    Payamps (0-1) allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk while failing to retire a batter, taking the loss in Sunday's game versus the Mariners. Payamps was unable to navigate the heart of the Mariners' order in the 12th inning, giving up a walkoff single to Jesse Winker. He had logged three scoreless innings in a row prior to Sunday's outing. The right-hander has allowed six hits, two walks and two runs (one earned) while striking out four through four innings across five appearances. He'll likely continue to function mostly as a middle reliever for much of the season.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Returns to team

    Payamps was activated off of the family medical emergency list Monday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. Payamps will return to the team ahead of Monday's series-finale against the Guardians after being away from the team for the first three contests. The reliever will look to build off a strong 2021 campaign where he posted a 3.40 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 37 appearances with the Blue Jays and Royals. Payamps will take the roster spot of Jackson Kowar after he was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Solid as opener

    Payamps allowed one run on two hits with two strikeouts in 2.1 innings in the nightcap of Monday's doubleheader versus Cleveland. He did not factor in the decision. The right-hander logged the most innings of the five Kansas City pitchers in the contest. Payamps' lone mistake was a third-inning solo home run by Andres Gimenez. Through 16 innings with the Royals, Payamps owns a 3.94 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB. He's gone 1-1 with a hold in 12 appearances since he was traded from Toronto, mainly in a multi-inning relief role.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Starting Monday's nightcap

    Payamps will start Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader versus Cleveland, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports. The 27-year-old will make his first start the majors with Kansas City set to employ a bullpen game to close out the twin bill. Payamps has pitched two frames in each of his past two outings and is likely to have a similar workload Monday.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Reinstated from injured list

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Lands on COVID-19 IL

    Payamps was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday. Scott Blewett was recalled to take his place in the bullpen. Payamps has a 4.22 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 10 strikeouts in 10.2 innings over his last 10 appearances.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Earns win in relief

    Payamps (1-3) earned the win in relief Saturday against Seattle after tossing 2.2 scoreless innings, allowing one hit and fanning two. Payamps picked up his first win of the season and managed to bounce back from an ugly outing the last time out -- he allowed two runs on three hits across two-thirds of an inning in his previous appearance against Seattle on Aug. 26. That has been the only blemish in Payamps' recent performances, though, as he has tossed seven scoreless outings over his last eight appearances. He owns a 2.40 ERA across 11 outings since the beginning of June.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Takes third loss

    Payamps (0-3) allowed an unearned run on one hit in one-third of an inning to take the loss Wednesday versus Houston. The 27-year-old's run allowed came on a groundout with runners on the corners in the bottom of the 10th. Payamps had not allowed a run in his previous 6.2 innings across two major-league stints prior to Wednesday. He has a 2.51 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 22:12 K:BB in 32.1 innings between Kansas City and Toronto this year. He's likely to see low-leverage opportunities for the remainder of the year.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Recalled by Kansas City

    Payamps was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Monday. Payamps spent a day on the major-league roster last week but still hasn't made his Royals debut. The right-hander has put up a 4.50 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in eight innings across eight relief appearances at Triple-A Omaha, and he'll take the place of Greg Holland (shoulder) in the bid-league bullpen.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Sent back down

    Payamps was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. Payamps was recalled Tuesday, but he didn't make his team debut during Tuesday's game against the Yankees. He made 22 relief appearances with the Blue Jays earlier in the year and recorded a 2.70 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 30 innings. The right-hander's demotion will make room for Brady Singer (shoulder), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's scheduled start.
