Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Removed from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals optioned Bolanos to their alternate training site Sunday, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Bolanos started in his two appearances with the Royals, but he acted as more of an opener than a traditional starter in those outings, covering two innings or fewer in both appearances. With the Royals needing to clear a spot on the active roster for Jakob Junis (COVID-19) ahead of his scheduled start in Sunday's series finale, Bolanos was ultimately deemed expendable after he was lit up for five runs on five hits and two walks while recording only five outs in Saturday's 11-5 loss.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Struggles against White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (0-2) took the loss Saturday against the White Sox after allowing five runs on five hits over 1.2 innings. He walked two and struck out one.

The young right-hander didn't have much going for him Saturday, as he surrendered two home runs and delivered only 20 of his 41 pitches for strikes. Bolanos has covered 3.2 innings and allowed seven runs (five earned) and eight hits during his two starts this season.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Starting again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos will start Saturday's game against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

The 23-year-old will make his second start of the season with Mike Montgomery (lat) on the injured list and Brad Keller and Jakob Junis not yet ready after arriving late to summer camp due to COVID-19. Bolanos allowed two unearned runs on three hits and one walk with one strikeout over two innings during his first outing, and he's unlikely to have the workload of a traditional starter Saturday.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Suffers loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (0-1) allowed two unearned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one over two innings as he was charged with the loss Sunday against the Indians.

After he was almost removed from the 30-man roster Saturday, Bolanos made a spot start on short notice in Cleveland. He was somewhat effective at limiting baserunners, but he was put in line for the loss after giving up two unearned runs. The right-hander is unlikely to be a regular in the starting rotation but could be an option to make more spot starts if needed later in the year.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Spot start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (ribs) will start Sunday's game at Cleveland, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

The 23-year-old was nearly removed from the 30-man roster Saturday, yet he'll end up receiving the starting nod only a day later. Bolanos had five appearances with the Padres last season and posted a 5.95 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 19:12 K:BB over 19.2 innings. He's unlikely to remain in the starting rotation since Brad Keller and Jakob Junis could be joining the team sometime soon after getting late starts to summer camp.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Remains on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (ribs) will remain on the Royals' 30-man roster, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Bolanos was initially set to join the taxi squad after right-hander Brady Singer was activated Saturday, but the Royals chose to option catcher Meibrys Viloria instead. Although Bolanos will remain on the active roster, he's unlikely to be used in high-leverage situations out of the bullpen.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Moved to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (ribs) was transferred to the Royals' taxi squad Saturday.

Bolanos made the Royals' initial 30-man roster, but he'll shift to the taxi squad after Brady Singer was activated ahead of his scheduled start Saturday. Even if Bolanos returns to the active roster, he's expected to be limited to lower-leverage work.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (ribs) was added to the Royals' 30-man roster Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bolanos is set to break camp with the Royals after being acquired by the team earlier in the month. The right-hander struggled to a 5.95 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 19.2 innings with the Padres in 2019, so he'll likely be limited to lower-leverage work with Kansas City.

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Dealt to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (ribs) was traded to the Royals along with Franchy Cordero in return for Tim Hill on Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Bolanos will need to make a positive first impression on the Kansas City coaching staff in order to find a way onto the major-league roster to begin the season. The 23-year-old dealt with ribcage soreness in the spring, and realistically he probably needs more time to continue his development before being worthy of pitching in a big-league rotation. Bolanos posted a 5.95 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 19:12 K:BB across 19.2 innings with the Padres in 2019.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Candidate for spot starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (ribs) is likely to open the season with Triple-A El Paso but could be considered for a callup if the need for a spot starter arises, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Bolanos was held out of Cactus League play due to soreness in his ribcage, but he was unlikely to break camp with the Padres even with a strong spring. The right-hander made three major-league starts down the stretch last season, posting a 6.75 ERA and registering a 13:11 K:BB in 14.2 innings. Walks have been an issue for Bolanos throughout his time in the minors, so he'll need to show improvement in that area before he's ready to ascend to the next level.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Heading to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (undisclosed) was optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Bolanos never ended up making his Cactus League debut due to an unspecified minor injury, sinking any aspirations for an Opening Day roster spot. The right-hander made his big-league debut in 2019 and had a 5.95 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 19.2 innings.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Dealing with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos is dealing with a minor injury but could get into a Cactus League game next weekend, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

It's not clear what Bolanos is dealing with, but it doesn't sound major. He has not yet made his spring debut. While he made three starts in the majors last season, Bolanos seems likely to open the year in the Triple-A rotation.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Walks five in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (0-2) took the loss against the Dodgers on Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on three hits over 3.2 innings, striking out four and walking five as the Padres fell 6-3.

Bolanos couldn't consistently find the strike zone in this one, yielding five free passes and laboring for 79 pitches, finding himself unable to make it out of the fourth inning. The 23-year-old tossed a quality start in his big-league debut Sept. 3, but he's struggled since then, giving up 11 earned over his last 11.2 innings to leave him with an ugly 6.62 ERA and 1.58 WHIP.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Getting one more start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

Bolanos was bumped to the bullpen last week following Garrett Richards' (elbow) return from the 60-day injured list, but there will be room for both pitchers to make starts in the final week of the season with the Padres expanding their rotation to six men. Over three appearances (two starts) with San Diego this season, Bolanos ha posted a 5.79 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 11:7 K:BB in 14 innings.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Shifts to relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos worked out of the bullpen in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Brewers, covering three innings and giving up two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two.

After making two underwhelming turns through the Padres' rotation earlier this month, Bolanos surrendered his starting role to Garrett Richards (elbow), who was activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of the series opener. Since Richards was limited to 61 pitches in his 2019 debut, Bolanos was still tabbed for multiple innings behind him in what essentially amounted to a piggyback arrangement. Richards should push up his count in his next scheduled turn Sunday versus Arizona, which will likely result in Bolanos taking on smaller workloads in his subsequent appearances out of the bullpen.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Gives up five runs in second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos did not factor into the decision against the Cubs on Tuesday, pitching five innings and giving up five runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five.

Bolanos struggled in his first home start, allowing a pair of two-run homers and a run-scoring single while walking four batters. The outing was a step down from his major-league debut, when Bolanos hurled a quality start by allowing only two runs in six innings. Despite the less-than-stellar outing the 23-year-old figures to get another start in San Diego's six-man rotation, with his next appearance scheduled to come in Milwaukee on Monday.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Gets second turn through rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos is listed as the Padres' scheduled starter for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

Bolanos joined the Padres' six-man rotation last week after being called up from Double-A Amarillo and acquitted himself well in a road matchup with Arizona, limiting the Diamondbacks to two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings. The 23-year-old gets another tough draw in his second turn through the rotation, though it's cushioned somewhat by the fact that he'll be pitching at Petco Park rather than Wrigley Field. The right-hander could make for a decent streaming option in deeper mixed and NL-only leagues.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Hard-luck loss in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos (0-1) took the loss against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on five hits over six innings, striking out four and walking two as the Padres eventually fell 2-1.

Making his big-league debut after getting called up from Double-A Amarillo, Bolanos was impressive in logging a quality start, but wound up tagged with the loss as he was outdueled by Merrill Kelly. It remains to be seen if he sticks in the rotation, but this was a successful audition, so the Padres might feel compelled to give him another turn.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Expected to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos will make his major-league debut as a starter against Arizona on Tuesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Bolanos was called up from Double-A Amarillo on Monday and will take a turn in the rotation when he debuts Tuesday. The 23-year-old has been used as a starter in 57 of 66 career minor-league appearances, compiling a 21-18 record in that role. Luis Perdomo had previously been projected to start what would have been a bullpen game but will now shift back to a standard relief role.

Padres' Ronald Bolanos: Called up by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bolanos' contract was selected by the Padres on Monday.

Bolanos will join the Padres straight from Double-A Amarillo. In 23 starts and two relief appearances split between Amarillo and High-A Lake Elsinore, he owns a solid 3.66 ERA and a 26.1 percent strikeout rate.
