Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Deals three scoreless frames Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy pitched three scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out four White Sox in long relief Wednesday.

The rookie's services were needed after starter Eric Skoglund lasted just three innings. Through 29 games this season, the 25-year-old owns a solid 2.75 ERA, but his poor 23:10 K:BB ratio and low-leverage role serves no purpose in fantasy circles.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Returning to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

With Joakim Soria (oblique) being placed on the disabled list, the Royals needed to add an arm to their bullpen. McCarthy has been a solid reliever for Kansas City this season, as he's built a 1.88 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 19 games (24 innings).

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

The Royals decided to ship out McCarthy to make room on the active roster for Jake Junis, who was recalled from Omaha in a corresponding move to fill the injured Trevor Cahill's (shoulder) spot in the rotation. McCarthy saw a surprising amount of usage during his four-day stint with the Royals, appearing in three contests and giving up three runs (all unearned) on five hits and no walks over three innings.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Summoned from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

Trevor Cahill was sent to the disabled list with a right shoulder impingement, so McCarthy was summoned back to the big club to offer some bullpen depth for the time being. The 25-year-old owns a shiny 2.14 ERA through 21 innings with the Royals this season, but his 1.29 WHIP and 8:5 K:BB make him an unappealing fantasy option. He'll likely head back to the minors when room is needed for Cahill's replacement starter.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

Although McCarthy owns a fine-looking 2.14 ERA, he's been hit hard in 16 games this season. The right-hander has allowed 22 hits over 21 innings, while managing an uninspiring 8:5 K:BB. A corresponding move is expected to be announced before Friday's game.
