Royals' Jake Junis: Rides offense to easy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis (8-2) allowed just three hits and two walks over 6.1 innings en route to a 15-5 win over Toronto on Wednesday, though he was tagged for four runs (two earned). He struck out three.

He actually shut the Jays out through six, but the seventh didn't go quite so well, and the two unearned runs actually came off an error by Junis himself. Nonetheless, Junis has been an excellent addition to the Royals' rotation, having given up three or fewer earned runs in six straight starts and eight of his last nine; in the latter span, he's posted a 5-0 record to go with a 3.02 ERA and 41:6 K:BB. Those numbers should ensure that fantasy owners remember his name heading into next season.

Royals' Jake Junis: Takes no-decision Thursday vs. Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis pitched 5.2 innings, allowing one run on seven hits and a walk while striking out one in a no-decision Thursday against Cleveland.

Junis turned over a 2-1 lead to the bullpen that was squandered with two outs in the ninth inning. Facing a team that entered Thursday on a record-breaking 21-game winning streak, Junis delivered a strong performance that dropped his ERA to 4.15, its lowest point since May 21. The 24-year-old righty continues to turn in solid efforts, and is now 5-0 with a 2.99 ERA over his last nine games dating back to June 29. Junis will look to continue the positive trend when he takes the hill for his next start Wednesday in Toronto.

Royals' Jake Junis: Continues strong work Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis went 6.1 innings Saturday, allowing two runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven, but he wasn't a factor in the decision during the Royals' 5-2 win over the Twins.

Over his last six starts, Junis has dazzled with a 2.48 ERA, 34 strikeouts and only two walks in 36.1 innings. He has quickly become a popular deep-league fantasy play. Sustaining this run could be tough, however, with his next start coming Thursday against the scorching-hot Indians.

Royals' Jake Junis: Collects fifth straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis (7-2) collected the win after allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out three across five innings Monday against the Tigers.

Junis has now allowed three or fewer earned runs in all five of his starts since rejoining the rotation at the beginning of August, a stretch over which he's picked up four wins and owns a healthy 2.40 ERA and 27:1 K:BB. Despite his recent success in the rotation, Junis remains on a pitch limit; he's failed to complete six innings or toss 80 pitches in each of his previous three outings. The 24-year-old will look to keep things up in his next scheduled start, which is set for Saturday against the Twins. With the Royals keeping an eye on his pitch count, Junis' value will be limited down the stretch.

Royals' Jake Junis: Fans career-high eight in Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis (6-2) picked up the win against the Rays on Tuesday, giving up only one run on three hits over 5.2 innings while striking out eight.

The eight Ks were a career high for the rookie, but despite his success Junis got an early hook from manager Ned Yost when he ran into a bit of trouble after throwing only 73 pitches (47 strikes). Junis has now won four straight decisions since rejoining the Royals in late July, posting a 2.86 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 29:2 K:BB in 28.1 innings over that six-start stretch, but as yet he doesn't seem to have earned Yost's trust to work his way out of jams, which could make it tough to keep getting into the win column. The right-hander will next take the mound Sunday in Minnesota.
