Royals' Kris Bubic: Takes no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic did not factor into the decision during Thursday's win against Detroit, surrendering four runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out three across 4.2 innings.

Bubic was mainly hurt by the long ball, giving up a two-run home run to Willi Castro in the third inning, then a two-run blast to Miguel Cabrera in the fifth. The southpaw left the game with the score knotted, 4-4, and fortunately the Royals soon surged ahead for good. Bubic wraps up the regular season with a 1-6 record, 4.32 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 10 starts.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Strikes out seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic (1-6) allowed one unearned run on one hit and four walks while striking out seven out to take the loss against the Brewers on Saturday.

Bubic was a tough-luck loser with the only run he allowed coming on a throwing error by Nicky Lopez. The only other downside to his outing was the four free passes, as only 59 of his 101 pitches found the strike zone. Bubic had shown better command of his pitches of late, walking only five batters across his last 17.1 frames prior to Saturday's start. Through 45.1 total innings, Bubic has maintained a 3.97 ERA with a 44:19 K:BB. He'll make the final start of his rookie campaign Thursday against Detroit.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Start pushed to Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic will start Saturday's game against the Brewers, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Danny Duffy (disciplinary reasons) will rejoin the rotation for Friday's series opener, pushing Bubic back to Saturday. The 23-year-old has a 4.50 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 37:15 K:BB through 40 innings during his first year in the majors.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic will start Friday in Milwaukee, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Danny Duffy (disciplinary reasons) keeps getting pushed back, so Bubic will get the ball Friday. This will be his penultimate start of the year, with his final turn coming next week against the Cardinals.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Logs first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic (1-5) tossed five innings of one-run baseball on Friday, allowing six hits and walking two during the Royals 4-3 win over the Pirates. He struck out six.

Bubic picked up his first MLB win and increased the Royals' win streak to four. A bonafide top-10 prospect from the Royals' system, Bubic has begun to find a rhythm, allowing fewer than three runs and lasting at least five innings in three consecutive starts.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Remains winless in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic (0-5) allowed five runs (two earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out four across seven innings in a loss to the White Sox on Saturday.

Things got ugly early for Bubic when Jose Abreu took him deep in the first inning for a quick 2-0 White Sox lead. He later would serve up his second home run of the game in the fifth after Maikel Franco extended the inning with a throwing error, leading to Yasmani Grandal's fifth long ball of the season the very next batter. Despite giving up the two home runs, Bubic lasted a career-best seven innings while throwing 74 of his 106 pitches for strikes. The southpaw is set to take the mound Friday in a favorable matchup against the Pirates.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Strikes out eight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic allowed two earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out eight across 5.1 innings Sunday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

Bubic racked up a career-best strikeout total, generating 15 called strikes and 17 swinging strikes on 106 total pitches. He gave up one run in the second and third innings but rebounded to turn in the solid outing. Bubic has now surrendered two earned runs in four of his six starts this season, though he has struggled to pitch deep into games. As a result, he has a 5.46 ERA with a 27:12 K:BB across 28 frames. He's in line to draw his next start Friday in a rematch against the White Sox.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Allows four runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic (0-4) took the loss Sunday against the Twins, allowing four runs on nine hits and two walks across 3.1 innings pitched. He did not record a strikeout.

Bubic has now been the losing pitcher in four of his five starts to start his big-league career. The Twins jumped on him for two runs in the first and added two more in the third. The left-hander will carry a 5.96 ERA into his next start, which is scheduled to come Saturday against the White Sox.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Takes loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic (0-3) allowed two earned runs on four hits and four walks while striking out four across 4.1 innings to take the loss Monday against the Twins.

Bubic was fairly effective through three innings, holding the Twins scoreless while allowing only two singles and a walk. However, he allowed a solo home run to lead off the fourth frame and subsequently walked two batters and surrendered a single to account for his two earned runs. Due to relatively poor starts in consecutive outings, Bubic's ERA has risen to 5.12, though he has managed to punch out 19 batters across 19.1 innings in his rookie season. He won't get a reprieve in his next start -- he is currently projected to face the Twins again on Sunday.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Surrenders five runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk over five innings during Tuesday's extra-inning loss to the Reds. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

The 23-year-old gave up seven hits and five runs (four earned) combined over his first two starts, but the Reds matched those totals during Tuesday's contest, though he was taken off the hook for the loss. Bubic has a 5.40 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB through 15 innings and lines up to pitch Monday at Minnesota.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Fans six in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic (0-2) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings in a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

Bubic more than held his own in his second career start, and in fact finished with more swinging strikes (13) than his counterpart, Yu Darvish (11). However, the 22-year-old lefty did not get any support from his offense and is now 0-2 despite a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through 10 innings (all at home). Bubic will be put to the test in his next two starts: at Cincinnati and then at Minnesota.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Makes one mistake in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic (0-1) took the loss Friday as the Royals fell 3-2 to the White Sox, giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out three.

Making his big-league debut, Bubic threw 45 of 76 pitches for strikes and mostly looked like he belonged in the Show, but he caught too much of the plate with a second-inning changeup that Adam Engel deposited over the left-field wall for a three-run shot. The young southpaw will stick in the rotation for now, with his next outing scheduled for Wednesday at home against the Cubs.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Contract selected by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic's contract was selected by the Royals on Friday.

Manager Mike Matheny said Thursday that the team would promote the 22-year-old to their major-league roster, and the Royals made the move official Friday. Bubic led the minors with 185 strikeouts over 149.1 innings last season and will now await a potential major-league debut. While the southpaw has had success at the lower levels of the minors, he may not generate the same results right away while continuing to develop in the majors.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Moving up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Royals manager Mike Matheny said that Bubic will be promoted from the team's alternate training site to start Friday's home opener against the White Sox, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

After one of the Royals' top pitching prospects in Brady Singer previously broke summer camp as a member of the big-league rotation, Kansas City won't wait long to bring another one of its more well-regarded young arms up for his MLB debut. Bubic's callup is more unexpected, as the 22-year-old lefty has yet to even pitch at the Double-A level. He was highly impressive while splitting time between Low-A Lexington and High-A Wilmington in 2019, leading the entire minor leagues in strikeouts (185) in just 149.1 innings. Bubic may continue to induce swings and misses at a decent clip in the majors, but expect some rough patches in light of his lack of high-level experience.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Gets summer camp nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic will be a part of the Royals' 60-man player pool this season, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

Bubic is one of a handful of talented starting pitching prospects who will be a part of the 60-man pool. The 6-foot-3 lefty led the minors in strikeouts last season, leaning heavily on his strong command and plus changeup to accomplish that feat. Unless the rest of his offerings improve, he is likely to end up as a solid No. 4 starter. He may see some time in the majors this season but should not be expected to have success right away.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Likely to open at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic will likely open the year at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

He gave up four earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings this spring. According to Brendan Gawlowski of FanGraphs, Bubic was sitting in the upper 80s with his fastball at times while touching 93 mph in a March 8 outing against the White Sox. This is important to factor in when looking at Bubic's eye-popping stats from 2019. He is a lefty with a plus changeup and average curveball, and that is often more than enough to flummox low-level hitters. While his statistics make him seem like a pitcher with a high ceiling, his stuff is more in line with a back-end starter.

Royals' Kris Bubic: To join big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bubic was invited to the Royals' big-league camp Monday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Bubic had a strong season in the minors in 2019, though he's unlikely to be ready for his MLB debut this year, as he's yet to reach the Double-A level. In 26 starts in Low-A and High-A last season, he cruised to a 2.23 ERA and a 32.2 percent strikeout rate.

Royals' Kris Bubic: Moves up to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals promoted Bubic from Low-A Lexington to High-A Wilmington on Tuesday.

Bubic will move on to his third minor-league stop since being selected with the 40th overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft. The southpaw faced little resistance from South Atlantic League hitters through the first two months of the season, posting a 2.08 ERA and 0.89 WHIP to go with an eye-popping 75 strikeouts in 47.2 innings.
