Royals' Jakob Junis: Records third straight quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis (8-12) was solid in Monday's win over the White Sox. He went eight innings and gave up three runs on seven hits and struck out five.

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.

Royals' Jakob Junis: Strikes out eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis allowed one run on five hits and two walks across five innings in a no-decision Monday against the Cubs. He struck out eight.

Junis worked effectively to contain a formidable opponent, with the only run charged to his ledger coming on a wild pitch in the fourth inning. He reached eight strikeouts for the first time in over two months and likely could've gone deeper into the game had he not worked up a high pitch count early on. This bounce-back performance was a positive sign for Junis, who'd allowed seven earned runs across 10.1 innings over his last two starts. He still has a disappointing 4.98 ERA on the season and will look to improve upon that that against the Cardinals in his next scheduled start.

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

Junis (6-11) got the win Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five over 5.2 innings against the White Sox.

Junis allowed a home run on the first pitch he threw all night but settled in from that point on, not allowing another run until the sixth inning with Kansas City already ahead by nine. Even with the relatively easy win, the four earned continues a troubling stretch for the 25-year-old, as he's posted a 7.84 ERA over 41.1 innings in his last eight starts and has allowed 14 home runs in that span. He'll take a 5.12 ERA into Monday's game against the Cubs.

Royals' Jakob Junis: Early exit in return from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Junis didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Twins, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over four innings while striking out six.

He was held to only 77 pitches (53 strikes) in his first start after being activated from the disabled list, preventing Junis from picking up his sixth win of the season despite a strong performance. If his pre-break troubles were caused by his sore back, and that issue is now behind him, the right-hander could return to the form that saw him post quality starts in five of his first seven outings of the season. He'll take a 5.03 ERA with him into Yankee Stadium on Thursday.
