Royals' Burch Smith: Roughed up again in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (1-4) was dealt the loss against the Cardinals on Friday, yielding five earned runs on six hits over just 1.2 innings, striking out none and walking a batter in Kansas City's 7-0 defeat.

It's been tough sledding for Smith lately, as this rough outing marked his third straight start where he's given up at least five earned. Unsurprisingly, he's gone 0-3 over that stretch and seen his ERA on the season climb up to 6.97 to go along with an equally ugly 1.60 WHIP through 60.2 innings. Those recent struggles, combined with his career ERA of 6.42 in 95.1 big-league innings, leave Smith well off the fantasy radar for the time being, even in favorable matchups.

Royals' Burch Smith: Shelled again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (1-3) allowed six earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Twins.

Smith was taken deep twice, once by Eddie Rosario and once by Max Kepler, and only held the Twins scoreless in two of his five innings. Since turning in a quality start against Detroit on July 24, Smith has allowed 11 earned runs in his last two starts, which have spanned nine innings. He has had limited success at the major league level as a starter, making him an option in only exceptionally deep leagues.

Royals' Burch Smith: Saddled with second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (1-2) surrendered five runs on five hits and three walks while fanning four across four innings as he took the loss Sunday against the Yankees.

Smith struggled throughout his fourth start of the 2018 campaign, as he allowed two runs in the first inning, one in the fourth and two more in the fifth prior to exiting with a five-run deficit. The 28-year-old right-hander was coming off an excellent outing versus Detroit (two runs allowed over 6.1 innings), but he didn't appear to have his best stuff against a tough Yankees' lineup. Smith owns a 6.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 55 strikeouts through 54 innings this season.

Royals' Burch Smith: Allows just one hit in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (1-1) got the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on one hit and two walks while striking out six over 6.1 innings against the Tigers.

Smith was in total command, inducing 17 swinging strikes while taking a one-hitter into the seventh inning. The only trouble he ran into all night came in his final frame, as he walked the final two batters he faced before seeing both runs come around to score against the bullpen. The 28-year-old has made three starts this year, and this was the first time he lasted more than 3.1 innings so Tuesday's terrific outing comes as a bit of a surprise. He'll draw a tougher matchup next time out, Sunday against the Yankees.

Royals' Burch Smith: Lasts just two innings in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (0-1) tossed two innings and took the loss Sunday, yielding two runs on three hits while striking out two in the 10-1 loss to the White Sox.

Smith has started two games this season, allowing six runs in just 5.1 innings. His ERA was bumped to 5.98 alongside a 45:22 K:BB in 43.2 innings on the year. If Smith gets another look in the rotation, he should take the mound at home against Detroit next Tuesday.
