Royals' Ryan Buchter: Scores 18th hold Friday in Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter collected his 18th hold, striking out one in a clean sixth inning Friday against the Indians.

With the team's bullpen in disarray, the left-hander seems to have garnered the trust of manager Ned Yost. Buchter hasn't allowed a run in eight of his last nine appearances, and Friday marked his second hold in as many nights. He hasn't received much high-leverage work since being acquired from San Diego, but Yost might changing that moving forward.

Royals' Ryan Buchter: Banks 17th hold Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter notched his 17th hold of the year after allowing a hit and striking out two Indians over an inning of work Thursday.

The left-hander owns a 3.48 ERA in 20 appearances since coming over from the Padres in July, but two of those outings account for five of the eight runs he's allowed. Buchter has been productive for the Royals, but his current role with the team makes him an unappealing fantasy option.

Royals' Ryan Buchter: Unimpressive in early run as Royal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter owns a 4.32 ERA in nine appearances as a Royal since being traded from San Diego on July 24.

Buchter was surprisingly successful as a setup man the past two seasons on the west coast, notching 36 holds with a 3.04 ERA over 118 games for the Padres. The Royals are still figuring out how to utilize the 30-year-old, but with a DL stint looming over Joakim Soria (lat), Buchter may find himself back in a position to pick up holds in the near future.

Royals' Ryan Buchter: Dealt to Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter was traded to the Royals by the Padres on Monday along with Trevor Cahill and Brandon Maurer for Matt Strahm, Travis Wood and Esteury Ruiz, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

Buchter has pieced together another quality season out of the Padres' bullpen, posting a 3.05 ERA and an 11.0 K/9 in 38.1 frames. He'll likely get plenty of high-leverage innings with his new team if he can continue pitching like that.

Padres' Ryan Buchter: Notches 15th hold Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter pitched a clean inning Thursday, picking up his 15th hold in a win over the Giants.

The veteran southpaw gave up an earned run in each of his previous two outings, but he bounced back Thursday to convert his fourth hold over his last six appearances. Buchter's 3.22 ERA and 15 holds make him a viable option in holds formats, but he could see an increase in hold chances if the Padres end up trading Brad Hand before the deadline.
