Royals' Scott Alexander: Hit with loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (4-4) landed in the loss column after allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while recording just two outs Wednesday against the White Sox.

The Royals were planning to rest Alexander due to a heavy workload recently, but he was thrust into action after Eric Skoglund -- who lasted just three innings as the starter -- forced manager Ned Yost to burn through his bullpen. Alexander hadn't allowed a run in 17 straight appearances leading up to Wednesday, and he still owns a shiny 2.26 ERA through 63.2 innings this season, so the 28-year-old should continue to hold down the ninth inning for Kansas City down the stretch.

Royals' Scott Alexander: Works around trouble for fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander worked around a pair of hits with a strikeout in an inning of work to record his fourth save of the season Tuesday against the White Sox.

Alexander allowed the first two men to reach in this one, putting the tying run at third with nobody out. He bounced back to strike out Yoan Moncada before getting a double-play ball from Matt Davidson to end the game. Alexander is now the owner of a shiny 2.00 ERA and appears to be the preferred option for saves at the moment.

Royals' Scott Alexander: Save opportunities on horizon?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander will see more chances out of the ninth inning in the near future, following manager Ned Yost's removal of Kelvin Herrera from the closer's role prior to Friday's contest, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Alexander has picked up three saves throughout the course of the 2017 season, all coming within the past three weeks as Kelvin Herrara has continued to struggle and nurse a forearm injury. Yost stated that Brandon Maurer, Mike Minor and Alexander will split the duties moving forward, and although it remains to be seen how that will eventually shake out, it appears as though Maurer will get the first crack at the job, as he's recorded 21 saves during his time between San Diego and Kansas City this season. During 48 relief appearances for Alexander, he's posted a 2.12 ERA and 1.23 WHIP this year.

Royals' Scott Alexander: Picks up one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander picked up a one-out save Monday against the Tigers, his third of the season.

Alexander cleaned things up for Brandon Maurer, who handed him the ball with the tying run at second base in a one-run game. The 32-year-old reliever needed just four pitches to end the contest, inducing a game-ending groundout from the only batter he faced (Mikie Mahtook). This marked Alexander's second save in the past four games, and it appears he could be in line for more opportunities with Kelvin Herrera (forearm) and Joakim Soria (oblique) both on the shelf with injuries. He has posted a 2.18 ERA and 49:22 K:BB in 57.2 innings out of the bullpen this season.

Royals' Scott Alexander: Earns fourth win Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander (4-3) picked up the win after striking out two of the three batters he faced Sunday in Minnesota.

As the club makes its final push toward the playoffs, Alexander has surprisingly become a key player out of the Royals' bullpen. Over his last 12 games (eight innings), the southpaw hasn't allowed a run while tallying four holds, two saves and a win. Manager Ned Yost will keep going to the well as long as it works, so Alexander is a solid play for those in deep leagues that value such relievers.
