Burch Smith: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith opted for free agency after being designated for assignment by the Royals in November, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Smith will try his luck on the open market after making 38 appearances (six starts) for the Royals as a Rule 5 pick in 2018. He accrued a 6.92 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over 78 frames, but a 8.9 K/9 hints at some semblance of upside if he can find a way to reduce his walks and do a better job of keeping the ball in the yard.

Royals' Burch Smith: Cast off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was designated for assignment by the Royals on Monday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Smith was dropped from the team's 40-man roster in order to free up a spot for Conner Greene, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old right-hander struggled to a 6.92 ERA and 1.67 WHIP across 78 innings with the Royals in 2018.

Royals' Burch Smith: Shifts to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith has been demoted to the Royals' bullpen, Maria Torres of The Kansas City Star reports.

Jorge Lopez, who was recently acquired from the Brewers in the Mike Moustakas trade, will slot into the big-league rotation Wednesday, which would have been Smith's day to pitch. Considering Smith had a 9.67 ERA and 1.70 WHIP over his last six outings (22.1 innings), he had likely already been cut loose in most fantasy formats.

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.
