Royals' Eric Skoglund: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skoglund was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

While he has been working as a starter at Omaha, Skoglund will move to the bullpen following this promotion. He takes the place of Neftali Feliz (fingers), who was placed on the 10-day DL as a corresponding move. Skoglund has a 5.59 ERA in 9.2 innings in the majors this year, and will likely be used as a long reliever.

Royals' Neftali Feliz: Lands on 10-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Feliz was placed on the 10-day DL with ulnar nerve palsy.

He is apparently feeling some numbness in his ring and little fingers, and it is unclear how much time he will end up missing. He gave up six earned runs over his last five innings, so perhaps the issue led to his recent poor performance. Eric Skoglund was recalled from Triple-A Omaha to take his place in the bullpen.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Takes third straight loss against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (4-9) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks with a strikeout and lasted just 2.2 innings in taking the loss Friday against Cleveland.

Kennedy has now given up 14 runs on five homers over his last three starts. He has never really found a groove this year, and this latest cold streak brings his ERA back up above 5.00, a mark he hasn't breached in a full season since his rookie season with the Yankees when he recorded an 8.17 ERA over 39.2 innings. At this point, it's easy to wonder just how much the 32-year-old has left in the tank.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Suffering from arm fatigue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer is currently being listed as suffering from a fatigued arm, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Zimmer has only pitched 36.2 innings this season, missing time earlier in the year with a shoulder injury. With that being said, it wouldn't be surprising to find out there is more to the story than the Royals are currently letting on, considering he threw 89.0 innings in 2013 and 64.0 in 2015, suggesting the number of innings he's pitched this year is not an unfamiliar work load.

Royals' Kevin McCarthy: Returning to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

With Joakim Soria (oblique) being placed on the disabled list, the Royals needed to add an arm to their bullpen. McCarthy has been a solid reliever for Kansas City this season, as he's built a 1.88 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 19 games (24 innings).
