Josh Staumont: Moves into free agency
Staumont (neck) became a free agent Friday after being non-tendered by the Royals.
Staumont was designated for assignment by Kansas City on Tuesday and will now officially head into free agency. The 29-year-old reliever underwent surgery this past July for thoracic outlet syndrome and it's unclear when he might be able to return to a mound.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Moved off 40-man roster
Staumont (neck) was designated for assignment by the Royals on Tuesday.

Royals' Josh Staumont: To have season-ending surgery
Staumont (neck) is expected to have thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in the coming days, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Staumont's upcoming surgery will almost certainly end his season. The right-hander will close 2023 with a mediocre 5.40 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 24:13 K:BB through 20 innings. The Royals have not indicated if he'll be delayed to start spring training in 2024. Staumont was moved to the 60-day injured list Friday.... See More ... See Less

Staumont suffered a setback this week in his recovery from a neck strain, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Royals' Josh Staumont: Bullpen session on tap Wednesday
Staumont (neck) played catch Monday and will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
MRI results revealed Staumont's neck strain wasn't as severe as initially thought, so the 29-year-old reliever began throwing slightly ahead of schedule. He will likely require multiple bullpen sessions before heading on a rehab assignment, meaning he's likely to return near the beginning of July.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Placed on IL with neck strain
Kansas City placed Staumont on the 15-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to June 6, with a neck strain.
Staumont will be out of action for two-plus weeks while he recovers from the injury. The right-hander has been replaced on the roster by Austin Cox, who was recalled from Triple-A Omaha. Staumont has struggled so far in 2023, logging a 5.40 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 20 innings with Kansas City.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Serving as Monday's opener
Staumont will serve as the opener during Monday's series opener in St. Louis, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Staumont struggled in Friday's appearance against the Nationals, allowing four runs on three hits and two walks while striking out one in one inning. He's served exclusively as a reliever in the majors but will begin Monday's game on the mound, while Mike Mayers expects to serve as the primary pitcher.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Recalled from Triple-A
The Royals recalled Staumont from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.
After impressing during spring training with a 1.13 ERA over eight innings and throwing four scoreless frames in Triple-A to start the season, Staumont will get another crack at the big leagues. He will fill the roster spot previously held by Dylan Coleman, who was optioned to Omaha on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Misses Opening Day roster
Staumont was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.
Staumont is a surprising omission from the Opening Day roster. He pitched to a 1.13 ERA and 10:5 K:BB across eight innings during Cactus League play, though the walk issues are a carryover from 2022. Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports manager Matt Quatraro told Staumont that he needs to work on getting ahead in counts. It's expected he'll be with the big club again at some point in the season, though the Royals boast bullpen depth that has been lacking in recent years.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Expected to pitch in spring opener
Staumont (biceps) is among the Royals relievers who is expected to pitch in Friday's Cactus League opener versus the Rangers, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Staumont spent the final six weeks of the 2022 season on the injured list with right biceps tendinitis, but he looks to be back to full strength for spring training and should open the upcoming campaign in a high-leverage relief role for Kansas City. Though he's picked up eight saves across the past two years and owns a career 26.1 percent strikeout rate in the majors, Staumont will face a tougher path to the closing gig in 2023 now that the Royals have added Aroldis Chapman to the roster to challenge Scott Barlow -- who saved 24 games last season -- for the gig....

Royals' Josh Staumont: Inks one-year deal
Staumont (biceps) signed a one-year, $1.025 million contract with the Royals on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Staumont put up an ugly 6.45 ERA over 42 appearances in 2022 before his season ended prematurely due to a biceps issue. The Royals will be hoping for better health and better results in 2023, and the 29-year-old right-hander is still a likely candidate to fill a high-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Out with biceps tendinitis
Staumont was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right biceps tendinitis, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
Staumont has surrendered 10 runs in his past four outings and will now be sidelined for at least the next couple weeks due to the tendinitis. He also threw a career-high 42 pitches over 1.1 innings Tuesday versus Arizona. The 28-year-old will be eligible for activation Sept. 9.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Hit hard again
Staumont (3-3) took the loss Tuesday versus Arizona, allowing four runs on three hits and three walks with one strikeout in 1.1 innings.
Staumont has given up at least one run in five of his eight appearances in August, with Tuesday's outing being one of the worst this month. He entered with the game tied at 1-1 in the seventh inning and yielded a sacrifice fly. He remained in the game to begin the eighth, but was charged with all three of Arizona's runs in that frame after Luke Weaver struggled to contain the mess. Staumont's bad month has him up to a 6.45 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 43:29 K:BB through 37.2 innings this year. He hasn't logged a hold since June 21 -- his last appearance before missing nearly a month with a neck injury -- so it's fair to question if he's even in the high-leverage mix at this stage. The Royals' bullpen has a collective 4.76 ERA, so there are few better options to serve as setup man to closer Scott Barlow.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Falls apart Friday
Staumont (3-2) allowed five runs on four hits and a walk without recording an out, taking the loss Friday versus the Dodgers.
Staumont was responsible for the entirety of the Dodgers' five-run rally in the seventh inning, including the two runners he left on base that Luke Weaver couldn't prevent from scoring. Inconsistency has been a problem for Staumont for the better part of two months, which includes an absence due to a neck injury. The right-hander now has a 5.77 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 41:25 K:BB through 34.1 innings. He's added three saves and five holds, but it seems unlikely he'll get many high-leverage looks since he hasn't gone more than two outings in a row without allowing a run since early June....

Royals' Josh Staumont: Collects win over White Sox
Staumont (3-1) struck out two in a perfect inning to earn the win Wednesday over the White Sox.
Staumont kept the game tied in the top of the seventh inning, and MJ Melendez put the Royals ahead with a solo home run in the bottom of the frame. It's been mixed results for Staumont since he returned from a neck injury in mid-July -- he has allowed six runs over 8.1 innings in his last nine appearances. Overall he's posted a 4.46 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 41:24 K:BB through 34.1 innings overall while adding three saves, five holds and three blown saves. The right-hander's neck injury cost him the primary setup role to Taylor Clarke (oblique), who is now on the injured list himself, which should allow Staumont to re-establish himself in the high-leverage mix....

Royals' Josh Staumont: Reinstated from injured list
Staumont (neck) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday.
Staumont landed on the injured list with a neck strain in late June. He recently made a pair of rehab appearances at Triple-A Omaha, allowing one run and one walk while striking out four in two scoreless innings, and he'll rejoin the Royals' bullpen ahead of Friday's game against the Blue Jays....

Royals' Josh Staumont: Rehab assignment on tap
Staumont (neck) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha on Sunday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
Staumont landed on the injured list in late June due to a neck strain but has been cleared to return to game action in the minors to close out the weekend. If he feels good following Sunday's rehab appearance, the right-hander will likely be able to rejoin the Royals sometime next week.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Josh Staumont: Out with neck strain
Staumont was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday, retroactive to June 23, with a neck strain.
Staumont hasn't pitched since giving up two runs over one-third of an inning Tuesday against the Angels, and he's apparently dealing with a neck injury. The 28-year-old will be eligible to be activated July 8, though it's unclear if he's expected to be healthy by that time.... See More ... See Less
