Kris Bubic News

He pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed seven hits, no walks and three runs (two earned) while striking out five. Unfortunately, he was tagged with his seventh loss of the year as the Royals only mustered three hits in the game. Bubic went on a solid run to end the season, posting quality starts in three straight. The 24-year-old made 29 appearances (20 starts) on the year and went 6-7 with a 4.43 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP and a 20.5% strikeout rate.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Kris Bubic had his best outing of the year on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers. He pitched seven innings and allowed two hits, one walk and no runs while striking out six. He earned the win to improve to 6-6 on the year. Bubic has quietly had a strong month of September. Over five starts this month, he's gone 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA. He hasn't been going very deep into his starts all year, but Sunday's outing was his second consecutive quality start. He'll make his final start of the 2021 season against the Minnesota Twins next Saturday.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Kris Bubic had a strong outing against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday. He pitched 6 1/3 innings and allowed two hits, four walks and one earned run while striking out two. He earned the win to improve to 5-6 on the year. The 24-year-old has pitched well in September with a 2.84 ERA over 19 innings. Saturday's start was his longest of the month and it was his first quality start since August 21. Over 27 games (18 starts) on the year, Bubic has a 4.80 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. He'll make his next start on the road against the Detroit Tigers next Friday.
Despite never pitching above High-A, Kansas City Royals starting pitcherKris Bubic started 10 games for the Royals in 2020, going 1-6 with a respectable 4.32 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 49 strikeouts in 50 innings pitched. Bubic was drafted in 2018 and went straight into the Rookie-level Pioneer League before progressing to High-A in 2019. That's when Bubic really came to prominence when he made 17 starts totaling 101 2/3 innings with a 2.30 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. He also struck out 110 batters with an impressive 28.1% strikeout rate and a very nice 6.9% walk rate. Understandably, those numbers weren't maintained in the majors, as he had a 22.1% strikeout rate and 9.9% walk rate last year. Bubic has an unusual delivery as a left-handed pitcher with a fastball that sits in the low-90s and is accompanied by a changeup and curveball. Without a fourth pitch, Bubic might struggle to be more than a back-of-the-rotation starter, but he's still only 23 years old and was pitching in college just three years ago. Bubic looks set to be in the Royals rotation in 2021 and based on last year's numbers, he could be a solid fantasy contributor in deeper redraft leagues. The Royals won't offer much run support for Bubic to pick up many wins, but with an ADP around 489, if he can progress and put up an ERA around 4.20 with a 1.30 WHIP and 120 strikeouts, he'll have some fantasy appeal in 2021.
