Rangers' Brian Flynn: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was assigned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Flynn was in camp competing for a bullpen spot as a non-roster invitee but won't be winning one, at least not to start the season. With a career 4.41 ERA and a 16.2 percent strikeout rate, he's unlikely to pitch in a high-leverage role if he does eventually crack the big-league roster.

Rangers' Brian Flynn: Signs with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Monday.

Flynn will receive an invitation to big-league camp as part of the deal. In 29.1 innings for the Royals last season, he struggled to a 5.22 ERA and a 22:17 K:BB.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

Flynn was designated for assignment by Kansas City on Friday, and after failing to draw interest while on waivers, he'll be assigned to Triple-A. He owns a 3.57 ERA and 1.49 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 22.2 innings this season for the Storm Chasers.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was designated for assignment by the Royals on Friday.

Flynn has struggled mightily in a trio of appearances since the All-Star break, compiling an unsightly 12.86 ERA, 2.71 WHIP and 5:4 K:BB in seven innings. As such, the Royals decided to drop the 29-year-old southpaw from their roster, recalling fellow lefty Richard Lovelady to take his place.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn (2-1) gave up seven runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out three through two innings to take the loss against the Tigers on Sunday.

Flynn allowed one run in his first two innings before allowing four hits and hitting two batters without recording an out in the third inning. The 29-year-old was put in a tough situation, making his first start in the majors since 2016 and given minimal time to prepare for a spot start after Homer Bailey was traded to Oakland less than an hour before his scheduled start. Flynn has a 2-1 record with a 5.18 ERA through 24.1 innings this season.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Called on for spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn is slated to start Sunday's game against the Tigers after Homer Bailey (undisclosed) was a late scratch, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

The Royals announced Bailey was unavailable just over a half hour prior to the series finale, leaving Flynn with minimal time to prepare for his first big-league start since 2016. Flynn has topped out at four innings and 78 pitches over his eight appearances in the majors this season, so those likely represent the upper bounds of his workload for the spot start.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Mops up in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was charged with three runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings of relief in Monday's 11-4 loss to the Blue Jays.

Flynn wasn't really able to stop the bleeding for the Royals as Toronto finished with a season-high 18 hits, but he at least saved the rest of the bullpen from overuse with starter Glenn Sparkman lasting only three innings. The Royals will continue to deploy the lefty as a mop-up man in relief, a role that won't lend itself to much fantasy utility.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

He has been sidelined all season with an elbow issue but is ready to rejoin the big-league bullpen. Richard Lovelady was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Rehab beginning Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

A sprained left UCL has kept Flynn out since late in spring training. It's not yet clear how long his rehab assignment is expected to last.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Shifts to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals placed Flynn (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

Flynn was diagnosed with a left UCL sprain late in spring training and is without a clear timeline to return to game action. The lefty is expected to join the Royals in a long-relief role once activated from the IL.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Dealing with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn has been battling an elbow issue, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

The severity of the injury is not yet clear. Given the timing of the injury, Flynn may be forced to open the season on the injured list.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Staying put in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn signed a one-year contract with the Royals on Thursday, avoiding arbitration.

Flynn spent the 2018 campaign as a middle reliever for the Royals, posting a 4.04 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 47:35 K:BB across 75.2 innings. The 28-year-old righty figures to fill a similar role in Kansas City's bullpen in 2019.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Set for spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn (groin) is listed as the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Giants.

Flynn is fully healthy and set to make his 2018 Cactus League debut after ending the 2017 season on the 60-day disabled list due to a groin strain. The 27-year-old, who posted a 5.40 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 50 innings with Triple-A Omaha last season, will look to earn a low-leverage bullpen gig with an impressive showing in camp.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Transferred to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn (groin) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

This puts an end to Flynn's 2017 campaign. He only made one appearance with the big-league club this year and posted a 5.40 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 50 innings at Triple-A.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Lands on DL with groin strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a left groin strain.

Flynn was lifted from Monday's game after 2.1 innings with a groin injury, and further tests confirmed the issue would indeed require some time on the shelf to recover from. Flynn has apparently been dealing with the injury for a couple weeks; the fact that he's been able to pitch through it could indicate the issue isn't anything overly serious. Still, he remains without a timetable to return. Eric Skoglund was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Removed with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was removed after 2.1 innings with a groin injury Monday against the Rays, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Flynn had been on a roll in the minors, but he told reporters he has been dealing with a groin injury for about two weeks. This was Flynn's first MLB appearance of the season, as he was just called up before Monday's game. It's unclear yet whether this injury will send Flynn to the disabled list; with roster expansion coming up, such a move may be unnecessary if the injury proves to be minor.

August 28, 2017 05:25 PM
Royals' Brian Flynn: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Flynn has improved his performance with Omaha as of late -- over his last 10 games, he's posted a 2.84 ERA and struck out 31 batters over 31.2 innings. He'll get a shot to to see if this recent success can translate to the majors; the 27-year-old hasn't appeared in a major-league game during the 2017 campaign.

July 26, 2017 07:56 PM
Royals' Brian Flynn: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

Flynn was sent down in order to make room for the recently acquired Trevor Cahill, who will making his Kansas City debut on Saturday against the Red Sox. After earning a promotion to the big leagues Monday, Flynn heads back to Omaha without getting an opportunity over the past couple games. The reliever has struggled with Omaha this season, posting a 7.29 ERA and 2.14 WHIP in 21 innings.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Heads to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Flynn was a big part of the Royals' 2016 bullpen, but struggles at the Triple-A level this season have kept him from emerging at the major-league level. He'll come up to provide bullpen depth now, however, looking to recapture his success from last year.

Royals' Brian Flynn: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flynn (back) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

The left-hander injured his back prior to the start of spring training, and he'll have to earn his way back onto the 25-man roster. Should he secure a promotion, Flynn could provide some help for a Kansas City bullpen that ranks 12th in the AL with a 4.51 ERA. The 27-year-old posted a 2.60 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 44 strikeouts across 55.1 innings out of the Royals' bullpen last season .
