Josh Staumont pitched one inning, allowing no runs on no hits and one walk to earn a hold in Kansas City's 6-0 win against the Astros on Saturday.
Staumont produced his fourth straight scoreless appearance and eighth in his last nine. Staumont has 27 strikeouts in 20 2/3 innings this season across 22 appearances. Staumont has taken advantage of most of his opportunities this season but on the Royals wins and saves are hard to come by. If anything happens to Scott Barlow, Staumont would become the de facto closer, but for now Staumont is viable in the deepest of leagues or AL-only leagues.
