Kris Bubic News
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Kris Bubic was shelled in his start against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday. Bubic pitched four innings and allowed six hits, two walks and six earned runs while striking out four. He gave up a total of four home runs in the game. Going into the game, he'd allowed just two home runs over 34 innings on the year. Bubic has now struggled in two consecutive starts after looking good in his first three starts of the year. He'll look to shake off this recent rough stretch in his next trip to the mound on Sunday against the Oakland Athletics.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Kris Bubic made his second consecutive start against the Minnesota Twins on Thursday. This one didn't go nearly as smoothly as the first one. Bubic pitched 4 1/3 innings on Thursday and allowed eight hits, two walks and four runs (three earned) while striking out six. Bubic had been on a role before this start. In his first three starts of the year, he allowed a total of 11 hits and three earned runs over 17 innings. He's someone worth monitoring in deep leagues, but isn't a must-roster player by any means. His next start will be on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels.
Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Kris Bubic came through with a strong outing against the Minnesota Twins on Friday. Bubic pitched six innings and allowed four hits, two walks and one earned run while striking out five. He earned the win, his first of the year. Bubic has made three starts now and all three have been solid, with two of three going for quality starts. He began the year in the bullpen and has seven total appearances this year. Over those seven appearances, he's pitched 29.2 innings and has a 1.52 ERA and 1.11 WHIP. He's worth roster consideration in deep leagues and AL-only leagues. His spot in the rotation is certainly secure for now. His next start will again be against the Twins on Thursday.
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.
