Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Another scoreless frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy struck out one in a perfect eighth inning Monday against the Angels, picking up his sixth hold of the season.

Tim Hill hit David Fletcher, the first batter of the eighth inning, and was then removed in favor of McCarthy. Wily Peralta picked up his first career save with a clean ninth inning, which only further complicates this closer-by-committee situation, which now features Peralta, McCarthy, Hill and Brandon Maurer.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Makes fourth straight scoreless appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy threw a scoreless seventh inning in Friday's win over the Astros, working around a pair of walks.

The 26-year-old was the first arm out of the bullpen to relieve starter Danny Duffy, and he helped preserve the lead before lefty Tim Hill got the save. Right-hander Brandon Maurer then blew a save chance Saturday, and that could open the door for McCarthy to take on a role in this newfound closer committee after Kelvin Herrera was traded earlier in the week.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Called up by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

In a corresponding move, the club optioned Brandon Maurer to Omaha. McCarthy failed to pin down a spot on the Royals' Opening Day roster but appeared in 33 games for the team last season, logging a 3.20 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over 45 innings of relief in a middle-inning role. He will likely be utilized in a similar fashion out of the bullpen moving forward.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Sent down Saturxay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports.

For a second straight season, McCarthy will report to Omaha to open the season after failing to lock down an Opening Day roster spot in the Royals' bullpen during spring training. The 26-year-old split time between Triple-A and the big club in 2017, posting a 3.20 ERA with the Royals and a 3.09 ERA with the Storm but also posting a K/9 rate below 5.5 at each stop. He should join the big club at some point in 2018.
