Kris Bubic optioned to Triple-A Omaha

The Kansas City Royals optioned young left-hander Kris Bubic to Triple-A Omaha on Friday, the team announced.

Fantasy Impact

The Royals won't need a fifth starter for the beginning of the season, and Bubic has struggled to an 8.59 ERA in 7 1/3 innings in spring training. Royals manager Mike Matheny noted that the team probably could have waited until the last day of spring training to make this move, but they are running out of extended innings for starters that they are going to need to begin the season. Sending Bubic to minor league camp allows him to work on his command and other things the team has identified as weaknesses. Bubic pitched to a 4.32 ERA in 2020 but walked 22 batters in 50 innings. He had never pitched above High-A before 2020 and was still just 22 years old, so that performance is actually pretty encouraging for a pitcher making such a big jump. Bubic is a great target later in dynasty drafts but is a risky proposition in 2021 redraft leagues.

Kris Bubic allows four runs

Kansas City left-hander Kris Bubic allowed four runs across 4 2/3 innings of work in an 8-7 win over Detroit on Thursday. Bubic struck out five and walked three.

Fantasy Impact

Bubic didn't factor in the decision. He finishes his rookie season with a 1-6 record, 4.32 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 49 strikeouts across 50 innings of work.

Kris Bubic takes loss

Kansas City Royals left-hander Kris Bubic allowed one unearned run over 5 1/3 innings in a 5-0 loss to the Brewers on Saturday. Bubic struck out seven and walked four.

Fantasy Impact

Bubic deserved a better fate than seeing his record drop to 1-6 but so it goes pitching for a last-place team. Bubic has been solid this year, posting a 3.97 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 44 strikeouts in 45 1/3 innings of work. He will face the Tigers next.
