Royals' Eric Skoglund: Ticketed for bullpen duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund isn't listed as one of the Royals' probable starters for their upcoming three-game series with the Blue Jays, suggesting he's been moved back to the bullpen, MLB.com reports.

With Danny Duffy (elbow) returning from the 10-day disabled list to start Sunday's game against the Indians, it appears Skoglund's run in the rotation is over. Even if he gets additional looks in a starting role before the season concludes, don't expect Skoglund to offer much help outside of AL-only leagues. In his five starts with the big club this season, Skoglund has submitted a 9.64 ERA over 14 innings.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Struggles in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out two batters in three innings Wednesday against the White Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.

It was another disappointing effort from Skoglund, and his ERA now sits at an unsightly 9.53 through 17 innings this season. The 24-year-old lefty has struggled mightily since tossing 6.1 scoreless frames in his big-league debut, allowing 18 earned runs on 26 hits over his next 10.2 innings pitched. Skoglund will likely head back to the bullpen following his poor outing, with Ian Kennedy (shoulder) and Danny Duffy (elbow) both expected to reclaim their rotation spots in the upcoming week.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Scheduled to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund is expected to start Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

With Ian Kennedy's next scheduled start being skipped, the Royals are planning on using Skoglund as their temporary replacement. Skoglund has been a liability on the mound, as he's allowed 16 runs on 23 hits and 10 walks over just five games (14 innings) this season. However, he'll have the chance to improve Wednesday against the underwhelming White Sox's offense.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

With Brian Flynn (groin) landing on the disabled list, Skoglund was summoned back to the majors just a day after being optioned to Triple-A. Skoglund struggled in a spot start during his last stint with the Royals, allowing seven runs on seven hits and a pair of walks while lasting just 1.1 innings and striking out one batter. He should offer length out of the big-league bullpen.

Royals' Eric Skoglund: Returning to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Following Sunday's disastrous start against the Indians where Skoglund allowed seven runs over just 1.1 innings, the southpaw will return to Triple-A. Skoglund's performance with Omaha this season hasn't been great either and he owns a 4.11 ERA and 1.39 WHIP after making 19 starts. In a corresponding move, Brian Flynn was recalled from Omaha.
