Royals' Bubba Starling: Ticketed for Triple-A next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Dayton Moore said Starling (oblique) will start the 2018 season with Triple-A Omaha, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Starling was on the cusp of making his MLB debut in 2017 before an oblique injury cut his season short. He finished the year with a .248/.303/.381 line in 80 games for Omaha. While he's expected to start in the minors, Moore noted the team wouldn't hesitate to promote him if he gets off to a solid start.

Royals' Scott Barlow: Signs with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow signed a one-year deal with Kansas City on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Barlow spent the 2017 season between Triple-A and Double-A as a member of the Dodgers' organization, posting a combined 3.29 ERA and 1.12 WHIP over 139.2 innings. The right-hander sported a 10.3 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9, but got hit pretty hard at the Triple-A level at Oklahoma City during seven starts. It remains to be seen if he will start the year in the big leagues or get a little more seasoning at the Triple-A level. He profiles as a No. 5 starter or middle reliever.

Royals' Wily Peralta: Signs with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peralta signed a one-year contract with the Royals on Tuesday that includes a club option for 2018, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

It's been a tough couple of years for Peralta. Since being named the Opening Day starter for Milwaukee in 2016, the 28-year-old hurler has struggled to a 5.79 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 145:75 K:BB across 185 major-league innings. He was also shifted to the bullpen last season after posting a 6.08 ERA across his first eight starts, though he continued to struggle in that role, compiling a brutal 11.94 ERA across 17.1 innings before ultimately being designated for assignment. Still, he boasts a high-90s fastball, and it's possible the change of scenery could help him return to his pre-2016 form (4.02 ERA in 519.2 innings from 2012-15), whether that be in the bullpen or as a starter.

Royals' Yefri Del Rosario: Agrees to deal with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Del Rosario agreed to a $650,000 deal with the Royals, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

The 18-year-old right-hander was one of 12 prospects granted free agency as part of the Braves' discipline for circumventing the international signing guidelines. He spent the bulk of last summer in the Gulf Coast League, posting a 3.90 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 29:10 K:BB in 32.1 innings. Del Rosario figures to get his first taste of full-season ball before the end of 2018.

Royals' Terrance Gore: Returns to Royals on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gore signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Friday.

Hours after being non-tendered, Gore put pen to paper, formally agreeing to return to the organization. Gore has one home run in seven minor-league seasons and he rarely gets on base, but he has great speed. Chances are, Gore will at least be up in September again to pinch run.
