Royals' Jakob Junis: Grabs ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis (9-12) picked up the win Saturday, allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six in a 9-4 victory over Cleveland.

The right-hander finished the year on a high note, delivering quality starts in five of his final six outings and posting a 3.46 ERA and 32:3 K:BB in 39 innings over that stretch. Junis' first full season in the Royals' rotation had its ups and downs, and he'll need to rein in his 1.4 HR/9 if he's going to significantly improve on his 4.42 ERA, but his outstanding control (2.2 BB/9) should have him locked into a rotation spot heading into next spring.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

This marked the third consecutive quality start for Junis, who now has a 1.88 ERA and 0.63 WHIP over that span. Junis has pitched well of late as he hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start since August 1st. He'll look to keep the streak going on Saturday against Minnesota.

Royals' Jakob Junis: Drops 12th game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis (6-12) got the loss Wednesday, allowing four runs (two earned) on nine hits while striking out five over 5.2 innings against the Rays.

Junis was hit early and often, allowing at least one runner to reach second base in all six innings of work except the third. Even still, Wednesday marked the fourth straight start in which the 25-year-old conceded two or fewer earned runs, and he's maintaining an impressive 26:5 K:BB across 22 innings in that span. He'll carry a 4.70 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Tuesday's tilt with the Tigers.
