Royals' Scott Barlow: Earns save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow did not allow a baserunner and struck out two to earn the save Sunday against the Twins.

Trevor Rosenthal had pitched in each of the Royals' past two contests, meaning he was likely unavailable for Sunday's game. That gave Barlow the chance to step in and secure the save, and he did so on only 12 pitches. Barlow has been a strong member of the Royals' bullpen, striking out 12 and allowing only two earned runs across 10 innings this season. Even with that success, Rosenthal appears to be the top candidate to pitch in save situations for the time being.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Picks up loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow (1-1) allowed two runs on two hits and no walks while striking out one over one inning as he was charged with the loss Sunday against the White Sox.

Barlow hadn't allowed a run over 4.2 innings during his first five relief appearances this season, but he was charged with his first loss of 2020 after allowing two runs Sunday. The right-hander may receive the occasional win this season, but he's unlikely to pitch in many high-leverage situations.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Bullpen role safe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow's spot in the big-league bullpen was safe when camp was suspended, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

He allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out four in 5.1 innings this spring. Flanagan referred to Barlow and Tim Hill as the Royals' setup men behind closer Ian Kennedy, although that doesn't mean one of them would be next up if the closer's role was all of a sudden up for grabs.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Moves back to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals recalled Barlow from Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Barlow will provide the Kansas City bullpen with some extra depth after the team summoned Brian Flynn from the relief ranks to make a spot start over the weekend following the trade of Homer Bailey to Oakland. Barlow has racked up 52 strikeouts in 36.1 innings with the big club this season, but a 6.19 ERA and 1.54 WHIP have limited his overall fantasy impact.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Barlow has been with the Royals all season, but his 6.19 ERA didn't make a case for him remaining there. His 31.3 percent strikeout rate is promising, though he walked too many batters (10.2 percent) and recorded a low 33.3 percent groundball rate. Jake Newberry was recalled to replace him in the bullpen.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Earns save in extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow secured the save against the White Sox on Wednesday with a scoreless 10th inning. He allowed zero hits and one walk while recording one strikeout.

Regular closer Wily Peralta pitched the eighth and ninth innings, giving Barlow the opportunity for the first save of his career when the Royals took the lead in the top of the 10th. The 26-year-old has a 2.25 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 10:4 K:BB across eight innings this season.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Option for Monday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow is an option to start Monday's game against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Heath Fillmyer and Glenn Sparkman are also considered options to make that start, as the Royals lack a trusted fifth starter with Danny Duffy (shoulder) still a couple weeks away from returning to the rotation. Barlow has never made a big-league start but logged a 6.11 ERA in 45.2 innings at Triple-A last year, working primarily as a starter.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals optioned Barlow to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

Barlow will cede his spot on the active roster to Wily Peralta, whose contract was selected from Omaha in a corresponding move. The 25-year-old righty made three appearances out of the bullpen during his latest stint with Kansas City, giving up four earned runs over 7.1 innings.

May 28, 2018 02:32 PM
Royals' Scott Barlow: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Barlow will take the place of Eric Stout on the roster and in the bullpen, as Stout was sent to the minors in a corresponding roster move after allowing three runs in Sunday's win over the Rangers. The 25-year-old Barlow owns a 3.94 ERA across 32 innings (six starts, one relief appearance) with the Storm Chasers this season. He should offer length out of the bullpen during his time with the big club.

May 4, 2018 04:20 PM
Royals' Scott Barlow: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Barlow appeared twice for the Royals during his brief cup of coffee in the big leagues, but allowed runs in both appearances. He'll head back to the minors to allow a fresh arm to come up to the majors. Jason Adam will replace him on the active roster.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow was recalled from Triple-A Omaha for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Barlow, who has served as the Royals' 26th man for two doubleheaders already this season, will be active for Game 2 on Saturday. The 25-year-old returned to the minors immediately both times and has yet to make his major-league debut. Barlow has struck out 13 and allowed one run on nine hits and seven walks over 12 innings with Omaha this season.

April 21, 2018 01:48 PM
Royals' Scott Barlow: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals optioned Barlow to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Barlow was called up to serve as the Royals' 26th man for Friday's doubleheader -- the second time he's served in said capacity this week -- but again did not make an appearance. The 25-year-old has a 6.46 ERA and 1.85 WHIP over 46 career innings at the Triple-A level.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Up for another doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow is with the Royals as the 26th man for Friday's doubleheader.

It's the second time Barlow has served in that capacity in the span of four days. He went unused in both halves of the Royals' doubleheader Tuesday. In parts of three seasons at the Triple-A level, Barlow has a 6.46 ERA with a solid 10.0 K/9 but a far-too-high 6.5 BB/9.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals optioned Barlow to Triple-A Omaha prior to the big club's 15-5 loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

Barlow had served as the Royals' 26th man in a doubleheader Tuesday, but went unused out of the bullpen in both contests and continues to await his major-league debut. He'll likely resume working in a starting role upon returning to Omaha.

April 17, 2018 02:16 PM
Royals' Scott Barlow: Recalled for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and will serve as the Royals' 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader in Toronto, MLB.com reports.

Barlow, who had previously made two starts for Omaha, will give the Royals some length out of the bullpen in the event neither of the team's scheduled starters for the twin bill, Eric Skoglund and Danny Duffy, are able to work deep into their respective outings. Look for Barlow to return to Omaha once the doubleheader is completed.

March 13, 2018 12:36 AM
Royals' Scott Barlow: Optioned to Triple-A Omaha
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow was sent down to the minors Monday night, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic Kansas City reports.

Barlow leaves big league camp after throwing 5.2 innings and giving up two runs on seven hits while striking out six. He figures to start the season with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate.
