Royals' Glenn Sparkman: Scheduled for callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sparkman is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Sparkman was sent to the minor leagues Aug. 23 after struggling on the hill, but the Royals will give him another shot in the big leagues now that rosters have expanded. He's accrued a 5.25 ERA and 1.71 WHIP with 22 strikeouts over 24 innings this season for Kansas City, and he figures to slot into a bullpen role during the final month of the regular season.

Royals' Glenn Sparkman: Allows three runs in loss to Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sparkman (0-2) allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks across four innings while taking the loss Tuesday against the Rays. He struck out five.

Sparkman allowed a solo home run in the second inning and ran into trouble in the fourth, when he allowed two runs on two hits and a walk before escaping the frame. He wasn't brought out for the fifth with his pitch count sitting at 88, which was his highest of the season. Sparkman appears set to remain in the rotation for the time being, but his inability to go deep into games or generate strikeouts (14:7 K:BB in August) put a firm cap on his fantasy relevance. He'll be hard-pressed to turn things around this weekend against the Indians.

Royals' Glenn Sparkman: Solid outing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sparkman allowed two runs on four hits and a walk across four innings during Thursday's win over the Blue Jays. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

Sparkman typically would have gone out for the fifth inning, but Thursday was the first time he reached the 75-pitch mark since a start for Triple-A Omaha July 3. The 26-year-old has a 4.95 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 20 innings with the Royals this season, and next lines up to start at Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Royals' Glenn Sparkman: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sparkman was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic Kansas City reports.

Sparkman was recalled from Omaha in early July and had a 5.06 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 16 innings. Blaine Boyer (back) was activated off the 60-day disabled list to take his place in the Royals' bullpen.

Royals' Glenn Sparkman: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals selected Sparkman's contract from Triple-A Omaha on Sunday, Maria Torres of The Kansas City Star reports.

Sparkman has made 16 starts this season between Triple-A and Double-A Northwest Arkansas, submitting a 3.96 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 88.2 innings. He'll settle into the Kansas City bullpen Sunday and could be asked to cover multiple innings in the Royals' series finale against the Red Sox with long reliever Heath Fillmyer expected to face a restricted pitch count as he makes a spot start for the injured Jakob Junis (back). Sparkman isn't expected to stick with the big club for long and could be sent back to the minors the next time the Royals need a fresh reliever.
