Zuber is delayed to start camp due to a shoulder issue, but it isn't thought to be a major one, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Royals' Tyler Zuber: Returns to majors
The Royals recalled Zuber from Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Kansas City was able to bring Zuber back on the 28-man active roster less than 10 days after demoting him since starting pitcher Brady Singer (arm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday in a corresponding move. Zuber should stick with the big club for its remaining five games of the season, likely working in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less

Zuber (0-2) allowed an unearned run on one hit and one walk in one-third of an inning in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to Tampa Bay.
The right-hander couldn't escape the bottom of the 10th inning, as Manuel Margot hit a walkoff single. Zuber has taken the loss in two of his last three outings. The 25-year-old has a 5.52 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 15:10 K:BB across 14.2 innings this season. While he's picked up three holds, Zuber hasn't received many high-leverage opportunities, and he did nothing Wednesday to indicate he should see more.... See More ... See Less

Zuber (0-1) allowed two runs on a hit and a walk with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 7-5 loss to Detroit.
The right-hander inherited two runners after Mike Minor allowed a pair of singles to begin the seventh inning. Zuber faced the minimum three batters -- he got some help from his defense, but his walk loaded the bases. Greg Holland then entered the contest and allowed a grand slam to Miguel Cabrera, with two of the runs charged to Zuber for the loss. The 25-year-old has posted a 6.08 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB in 13.1 innings this year. With inconsistent efforts, he'll likely remain in a low-leverage role.... See More ... See Less

Zuber allowed two runs on a hit and a walk in two-thirds of an inning during Tuesday's 8-7 loss to Detroit. He also hit a batter.
Zuber relieved starter Brady Singer, but the former wasn't very effective in a short appearance. Zuber was able to escape a jam in the fourth inning, but he put the first two batters aboard in the fifth, and Jake Brentz allowed both inherited runners to score. The 25-year-old Zuber now sports a 5.56 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 10:5 K:BB across 11.1 innings. He's picked up two holds, but he's more likely to see low-leverage assignments since he's allowed runs in four of his last seven outings.... See More ... See Less

Zuber (arm) could be available to pitch in Saturday's game against the Tigers, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Zuber was hit by a liner on his pitching arm Friday, but he was confident that he'd be available in relief for Saturday's matchup. While manager Mike Matheny called Zuber's assessment "aggressive," it doesn't sound as though the right-hander's injury is a significant concern. Zuber underwent X-rays Friday that came back negative, and he'll visit with trainers once again Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Tyler Zuber: Hit on pitching arm
Zuber (arm) was removed from Friday's game versus the Tigers after he was hit by a batted ball on his pitching arm, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
Zuber retired the only batter he faced to finish the sixth inning, but manager Mike Matheny erred on the side of caution after the reliever was hit by the ball. Per Worthy, X-rays on Zuber's arm came back negative, so the right-hander can be considered day-to-day going forward.... See More ... See Less

He's not currently part of the Royals' crowded closer committee.... See More ... See Less
