2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Eric Skoglund in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Allows one earned run
PKansas City Royals
September 30, 2018
Skoglund (1-6) allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks while striking out three across five innings to take the loss Sunday against the Indians.
ANALYSIS
Skoglund's only earned run came on a solo home run by Francisco Lindor in the third inning, but he was still stuck with the loss. He ended the season on a strong note, allowing only three earned runs across 20.1 September innings. Overall, Skoglund recorded a 5.14 ERA and 1.21 WHIP across 70 innings at the major-league level, though he managed a paltry 49 strikeouts. He'll likely be among the Royals' options competing for a spot in the back of the rotation to begin 2019.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.
