Royals' Sam Gaviglio: Next start pushed to Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio's next start will come Sunday against the White Sox, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Ian Kennedy (shoulder) will start Tuesday, but his return won't bump Gaviglio from the rotation. Instead the Royals will go with a six-man rotation, giving Gaviglio a chance to make two more starts before the end of the season. He has allowed three earned runs on 11 hits while posting an 8:3 K:BB in two starts (10 innings) since arriving to Kansas City.

Royals' Sam Gaviglio: Strikes out five in win over White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio (4-5) allowed two runs on seven hits with no walks across five innings while earning the win Tuesday against the White Sox. He struck out five.

Gaviglio pounded the strike zone at a 72 percent clip in this one, throwing first-pitch strikes to 17 of 22 hitters. He was staked to a four-run lead in the first inning and battled through jams in the third and fourth, giving up one run in each frame. Gaviglio struggled in his last couple of starts prior to joining the Royals, but he has acquitted himself nicely in two starts with his new club by posting a 2.70 ERA and a 1-0 record. His arrow appears to be pointing up, but his next start will come Sunday against the surging Indians.

Royals' Sam Gaviglio: Strong in Kansas City debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio held the Twins to one run on four hits with three walks and three strikeouts over five innings in Thursday's no-decision.

While Gaviglio was just claimed off waivers from Seattle last Friday, he didn't look like a guy recently picked up off the scrap heap here. Gaviglio and Minnesota starter Kyle Gibson traded zeroes through four innings, but Gibson was tagged for two runs in the bottom of the fifth after Gaviglio surrendered a solo homer to Robbie Grossman in the top of the frame. Closer Kelvin Herrera blew the 2-1 lead in the ninth inning, turning a potential win for the starter into a no-decision. The rookie has an appetizing matchup next time out with the last-place White Sox in town, but his 43:24 K:BB through 67.1 innings caps his value.

Royals' Sam Gaviglio: Set to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio will start Thursday's game against the Twins, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

It had become apparent that Gaviglio was the front-runner to start Thursday's contest, and those plans will come to fruition. Prior to being acquired by the Royals, Gaviglio had appeared in 12 games (62.1 innings) with the Mariners, 11 of which were starts. He went 3-5 over said games and put together a 4.62 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. Control wasn't his strong suit, as he threw for a 40:21 K:BB in that time.

Royals' Sam Gaviglio: Leading candidate for Thursday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Royals manager Ned Yost said that Gaviglio could start Thursday against the Twins when a fifth starter is next required, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Since Danny Duffy hit the disabled list Aug. 26 with a left elbow impingement, Yost has handed starts to Eric Skoglund and Onelki Garcia, with neither pitcher finding much success. Since Duffy doesn't look to be on track for an activation during the upcoming week, it appears the Royals may be ready to give a rotation trial to Gavligio, who was claimed off waivers from the Mariners on Friday. The right-hander had previously served as a starter for an injury-battered Mariners rotation for a good chunk of the first half, submitting a 4.62 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 5.8 K/9 in 62.1 innings. Those numbers aren't anything that will warrant much intrigue in the fantasy realm, but they might be enough to make Gaviglio more appealing than the rest of the Royals' alternatives.
