Royals' Chris Ellis: Traded to Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers traded Ellis to the Royals on Thursday immediately following the Rule 5 draft.

Ellis was picked seventh in the draft by the Rangers before getting flipped to Kansas City, likely in exchange for cash considerations. The 26-year-old spent a majority of the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level within the Cardinals' organization, logging a 3.76 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with a 7.7 K/9. Ellis has the ability to serve as a starting pitcher or multi-inning reliever for the Royals moving forward.

Rangers' Chris Ellis: Heads to Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellis was selected by the Rangers with the seventh pick in the Rule 5 draft.

Texas marks Ellis' fourth organization -- he was most recently shipped from Atlanta to St. Louis in a 2016 trade that sent Jaime Garcia to Atlanta. While most of his minor-league experience has been as a starting pitcher, Ellis' stuff has ticked up out of the bullpen, and he is capable of logging more than one inning at a time. The 26-year-old righty posted a 3.76 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 68 strikeouts in 79 innings at Triple-A. Look for him to be used as a long reliever and spot starter.
