Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Suffering from arm fatigue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer is currently being listed as suffering from a fatigued arm, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Zimmer has only pitched 36.2 innings this season, missing time earlier in the year with a shoulder injury. With that being said, it wouldn't be surprising to find out there is more to the story than the Royals are currently letting on, considering he threw 89.0 innings in 2013 and 64.0 in 2015, suggesting the number of innings he's pitched this year is not an unfamiliar work load.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Exits with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer was prematurely lifted from Wednesday's minor-league game with an apparent injury.

Zimmer signaled for the trainer after facing just one batter and tossing six pitches. It's unclear what the issue was that forced him out of the game, but it's worth noting that his fastball velocity was significantly down. He'll likely be reevaluated in the coming days, after which there should be a clearer idea regarding his status.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Impressing management with fastball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals are pleased with Zimmer's velocity -- he touched 97 mph last time out -- and are considering calling him up for a late-inning role, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

This is quite a shift from the idea that Zimmer was not on the Royals' radar less than a month ago. Despite the apparent positive impression he's made on team management, it's tough to believe that the right-hander is ready for an MLB role considering his awful numbers in 11 games with Triple-A Omaha this season.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Not on big-league radar
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer, who recently returned to action with Triple-A from a shoulder injury, is not expected to be called up anytime soon, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

In three relief appearances -- each of which lasted two innings -- since being activated, the 25-year-old righty has surrendered just one run on four hits while striking out five. Zimmer is expected to fill a rotation spot for Kansas City in the not-too-distant future, but the club is in no hurry to push him through the ranks. Even if he does well in Omaha, the team currently has no room in its big-league rotation for Zimmer.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Back in action with Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer (shoulder) was activated off the minor-league disabled list Tuesday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Zimmer has been out since late April due to this most recent shoulder ailment, although it seems like the Royals finally feel comfortable enough to deploy him in full game action again. With all the injuries to the Royals' rotation, it's not out of the question for the pitching prospect to receive a callup later in the summer, although he'll need to prove he can stay healthy over an extended number of starts with Triple-A Omaha.
