Junis (5-8) struck out 10 and gave up one run on five hits and two walks through seven innings to take the win over the White Sox on Monday.
Junis generated 20 swinging strikes, 15 on his slider, in the dominant performance that led to a new career-high with 10 strikeouts. The right-hander has a 1.93 ERA with a 16:4 K:BB in his last two starts and could be beginning to turn the corner. Junis had a 3.35 ERA in the second half last season and could be on his way to similar results this year. Junis will make his next start Saturday against the Indians at Progressive Field.
Junis allowed two runs on five hits with two walks and six strikeouts across seven innings during a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday.
This was one of Junis' best starts of the year, but the Royals needed a two-run rally in the eighth to help him avoid a loss. While he didn't take the defeat, Junis hasn't captured a win since May 30. He is 4-8 with a 5.33 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 98 strikeouts in 106.1 innings this year.
Junis (4-8) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on six hits and two walks over 4.2 innings while striking out four as the Royals were toppled 9-5 by Cleveland.
The right-hander did manage to keep the ball in the park -- just the fourth time in his last 11 starts he hasn't served up a homer -- but that was about the only silver lining in this one for Junis. He'll take a 5.53 ERA and 92:36 K:BB through 99.1 innings into his final outing before the All-Star break, on the road Sunday against the Nationals.
Junis (4-7) took the loss Wednesday, giving up four runs on nine hits and a walk over six innings while striking out four as the Royals fell 5-3 to Cleveland.
Homers were once again an issue for Junis, as he was taken deep by Jake Bauers and Tyler Naquin in the fourth inning for solo shots that proved to be the difference in the game. The right-hander will carry a 5.23 ERA and 88:34 K:BB through 94.2 innings into his next start Tuesday -- a home rematch against Cleveland.
Junis struck out eight but didn't factor into the decision in an 8-7 loss to the Twins on Friday, giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks over six innings.
The right-hander was denied his fifth win of the season by a late bullpen meltdown, but Junis still came through with a strong effort, tying his season high in strikeouts. Four of his six quality starts on the season have come in his last six trips to the mound, and he's posted a respectable 4.32 ERA and 37:12 K:BB over 33.1 innings during that stretch. Junis will look to keep rolling into his next outing Wednesday in Cleveland.
Junis yielded two runs on five hits and three walks across 3.2 innings Sunday, striking out five and taking the no-decision in the win over Minnesota.
Junis narrowly escaped the first inning unscathed after loading up the bases. He later gave up a solo shot to Miguel Sano and an RBI single to Max Kepler in the fourth that ended his afternoon. Junis was very inefficient, needing 92 pitches despite the short start. He'll carry an unsightly 5.33 ERA into a rematch with the Twins at home on Friday.
Junis didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Tigers, allowing two runs on five hits over seven innings while striking out five.
The right-hander served up a pair of solo homers -- the fifth time in his last 10 starts he's been taken deep more than once -- but Junis otherwise kept Detroit's bats in check en route to his fifth quality start of the season. He'll carry a 5.35 ERA and 71:28 K:BB through 79 innings into his next outing Sunday in Minnesota.
Junis (4-6) gave up six runs (five earned) on eight hits and three walks while striking out five through 4.2 innings to take the loss against the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Junis appeared to settle down after allowing a pair of first-inning runs, but he ultimately surrendered four more runs in the top of the fifth. The right-hander continues to struggle with control, as he's allowed a 3.5 BB/9 this season while generating a 4-6 record and 5.63 ERA through 13 starts. Junis will make his next start Tuesday against the Tigers at Kauffman Stadium.
Junis (4-5) earned the win Thursday by holding the Rangers to two runs on four hits and two walks while punching out seven through six innings of work.
Junis logged his second straight quality start with the help of seven strikeouts to pick up his first win since May 1. The right-hander looked sharp against the Rangers, highlighting his solid strikeout effort by fanning three batters in the second inning. Otherwise, his only major blemishes were home runs to Shin-Soo Choo and Nomar Mazara. The 26-year-old will carry a 5.35 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 48:42 K:BB into a tough matchup against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
Junis threw six innings in a no-decision Saturday, giving up three runs on six hits, striking out seven and walking two as the Royals lost to the Yankees 7-3.
Junis delivered his third quality start of the season with the effort. The 26-year-old allowed a pair of runs in the first inning on a Clint Frazier double and one more in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by Gio Urshela. Junis is now sporting a 5.58 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP through 61.1 innings. His next outing is scheduled for Thursday on the road against the Rangers.
Junis will start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Junis was in line to start Friday night's contest, but the game was postponed due to weather. Jorge Lopez will toe the rubber for Game 2 of the twin bill.
Junis (3-5) took the loss Saturday, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out six as the Royals were downed 6-3 by the Angels.
It was the longest outing of the year for the right-hander, but that didn't stop Junis from losing his third straight start. He's allowed fewer than four runs only twice in his last eight trips to the mound, and he'll take a 5.69 ERA and 47:21 K:BB through 55,1 innings into his next start Friday, at home against the Yankees.
Junis (3-4) took the loss after giving up five runs (four earned) on three hits and five walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings Sunday against the Phillies.
Junis cruised through four scoreless frames before running into trouble in the fifth. He allowed four earned runs while recording just one out before getting yanked from the contest. The right-hander struggled to find the strike zone at times, issuing five costly free passes and tossing 51 of 96 pitches for strikes. Junis hasn't found much success of late, surrendering nine runs over the course of his last two starts, raising his ERA to 5.77 through 48.1 innings this season.
Junis (3-3) took the loss Monday as the Royals were downed 6-4 by the Astros, giving up five runs on nine hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out three.
After a couple of solid starts, Junis fell victim to the long ball once again. The right-hander continues to live around the strike zone, having walked more than two batters only once in eight outings, but he hasn't been fooling enough batters to thrive with that approach. He'll take a 5.52 ERA and 37:15 K:BB through 44 innings into his next start Sunday, at home against the Phillies.
Junis (3-2) allowed two runs on six hits with two strikeouts and two walks across 6.1 innings in a victory against the Rays on Wednesday.
The Rays had baserunners in five of the seven innings in which Junis took the mound, but the right-hander limited the Rays to only two runs from a double in the second. Junis had a tough start to the year, but he's yielded only three runs in his last 11.1 innings (2.38 ERA) over his most recent two starts. Overall, he is 3-2 with a 5.12 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 34 strikeouts in 38.2 innings this year. His next outing is scheduled for Sunday at the Tigers.
Junis will start the first game of the Royals' doubleheader Wednesday with the Rays.
Junis had been scheduled to take the hill Tuesday, but a postponement due to inclement weather nixed those plans. He'll simply be moved back a day in the schedule to start the split doubleheader, with the Royals set to call up Glenn Sparkman from Triple-A Omaha to serve as the starter in Game 2. Since Sparkman will be tasked with opposing reigning AL Cy Young winner Blake Snell, Junis could have an easier path to claiming his third win of 2019 while squaring off against Rays opener Ryne Stanek.
Following the postponement of Tuesday's game, Junis will start one of Wednesday's games against the Rays, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Junis was scheduled to pitch Tuesday, but rain derailed that plan. As a result, he'll receive one extra day of rest before toeing the rubber.
Junis (hand) is listed as the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Rays.
He left his last start with a hand contusion but will not miss a turn in the rotation. Junis lines up opposite Blake Snell in this outing and will make a second start next week Sunday in Detroit.
Junis left his start Wednesday against the Rays with a right hand contusion, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Junis (1-2) took the loss Friday after allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out two over 5.1 innings against the Yankees.
Junis gave up a two-run blast in the third inning, a solo homer in the fifth and two more runs in the sixth before exiting the contest with his team down by three. The 26-year-old right-hander has yet to figure things out this season, and he's surrendered four or more runs in each of his last three outings. Following an unimpressive showing, Junis has accrued a 6.26 ERA and 1.54 WHIP with 26 strikeouts over 27.1 frames in 2019.
