Outrighted to Triple-A

Arm
June 28, 2020
Skoglund (arm) cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
ANALYSIS
The 27-year-old was designated for assignment back in late March, but due to the transaction freeze he remained in roster limbo for the past three months. Skogland isn't eliminated from being included on Kansas City's initial 60-man player pool, but his removal from the 40-man roster will make it more difficult for him to begin the season in the majors.

James Paxton has won 10 straight starts, and Chris Bennett says that while a pitch-count limit for him might be in play, injuries to the Rangers’ lineup make it less scary to pitch against.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Skoglund made 13 starts and one relief appearance for the Royals last season but did little to impress, finishing with a 5.14 ERA and 16.7 K%. It's possible his struggles were injury-related, as he was battling elbow soreness early in the season and was shut down for over three months after being diagnosed with a UCL sprain. He did return for four starts in September, easing concerns about the elbow at least somewhat. Standing tall at 6-foot-7 with a funky delivery, Skoglund has to rely primarily on deception against big-league hitters as both his stuff and command are unremarkable. He'll enter camp in a battle for the Royals' fifth starter spot, but he's unlikely to be a particularly appealing option should he win the job, as his career ERA through 88 innings sits at 6.03 and his 4.13 mark at the Triple-A level doesn't suggest a dramatic improvement is coming.
Skoglund received his first taste of the majors in 2017, struggling to a 9.50 ERA in 18 innings of work. He walked far too many batters (12.9 percent), struck out far too few (15.1 percent) and didn’t generate many groundballs (36.4 percent). In 19 starts for Triple-A Omaha, the 25-year-old fared far better, striking out 23.3 percent of batters faced while walking just 6.6 percent en route to a 4.11 ERA. Skoglund features a fastball in the low 90s and three mediocre offspeed pitchers -- very much a back-end starter profile. That might be enough to earn him a handful of starts again this season for a Royals’ team which lacks much starting depth. As a 6-foot-7 lefty, there may be more to dream on than for other players with similar statistical profiles, but it would be a surprise to see Skoglund have a major fantasy impact this season.
