Top Jackson Kowar News

  • Mariners' Jackson Kowar: Shipped to Seattle

    Kowar and Cole Phillips (elbow) were traded from Atlanta to Seattle on Sunday in exchange for Jarred Kelenic, Marco Gonzales and Evan White, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Kowar was traded from Kansas City to Atlanta in mid-November, and he'll be on the move once again as the Winter Meetings get underway. The 27-year-old was once a highly-regarded prospect, but he's largely struggled in the big leagues. Over 39 appearances (eight starts), he's posted a 9.12 ERA and 2.09 WHIP in 74 innings. If he earns a spot on Seattle's Opening Day roster in 2024, it's possible he has to settle for a role as a long reliever early in the year.

  • Braves' Jackson Kowar: Dealt to Atlanta

    Atlanta acquired Kowar from the Royals on Friday in exchange for Kyle Wright, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Kowar owns a brutal 9.12 ERA through his first 74 major-league innings, but he was a top-100 prospect just a few years ago and can maybe find himself with a change of scenery. The reigning NL East champs could try him as a long reliever in 2024, though he also has past experience as a starter.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Picks up second win

    Kowar (2-0) allowed a hit and struck out two over a scoreless inning to earn the win Monday over the Guardians.

    Kowar's two wins have come over his last five appearances, in which he's posted a 5.1-inning scoreless streak with a 6:1 K:BB. The right-hander is finding a bit more success out of the bullpen in the majors, though he still has a 4.91 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 28:16 K:BB through 25.2 innings over 20 appearances this season. Kowar started just one of his 30 outings with Triple-A Omaha but pitched to a 5.96 ERA over 45.1 innings. It appears he'll mostly remain in a low-leverage role with the capability to take multiple innings for the rest of this season.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Snags first major-league win

    Kowar (1-0) struck out one in a perfect inning to earn the win Tuesday over the White Sox.

    Kowar pitched the ninth inning with the Royals down by one, but they scraped together two runs to walk it off. This was Kowar's fifth scoreless effort across eight appearances since he was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Aug. 17. The right-hander has a 5.91 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 23:15 K:BB over 21.1 innings in the majors this season while working almost exclusively as a reliever across all levels.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Recalled from Omaha

    Kansas City recalled Kowar from Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

    Kowar returns to the Royals as a fresh bullpen arm ahead of Thursday's series finale against the Mariners. The 26-year-old right-hander has allowed 12 runs -- eight earned -- in 11.2 innings of work this season at the MLB level.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Sent back to Omaha

    Kansas City optioned Kowar to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Promoted to KC

    The Royals recalled Kowar from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Kowar and James McArthur will both come up from the minors to make up for the departures of Scott Barlow and Ryan Yarbrough at Tuesday's trade deadline. With a 9.83 ERA and 2.13 WHIP through 57.2 career MLB innings, Kowar offers very little fantasy value.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Back to minors

    Kowar was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

    Kowar was most recently promoted to the majors June 2, and he went on to pitch 9.1 innings across seven appearances. He allowed at least one run on four occasions, which amounted to a 7.71 ERA.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Recalled from Triple-A

    Kansas City recalled Kowar from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

    The 26-year-old right-hander will replace Amir Garrett, who is headed to the 15-day injured list with a left elbow injury. A former top prospect, Kowar projects to operate in long relief as he joins the Royals' major-league roster for the second time this season.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Sent back to Omaha

    Kowar was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

    Kowar was called up Tuesday and tossed 2.1 scoreless innings while walking two batters and striking out three in Friday's 2-0 loss to the White Sox. With Amir Garrett (personal) being reinstated from the family emergency list Saturday, Kowar will head back to Triple-A. The right-hander could earn another call-up later this summer if a bullpen arm goes down for Kansas City.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Royals recalled Kowar from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

    Kowar holds a 7.84 ERA and 2.13 WHIP through 20.2 innings across 13 appearances in Omaha this season. His struggles are nothing new, as he hasn't maintained an ERA below 6.00 at any level since 2021. He has a knack for striking batters out at an above-average rate, but Kowar still holds virtually no fantasy value. Max Castillo was optioned to Omaha in a corresponding move.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Role is undecided

    Kowar's role moving forward has yet to be determined by the Royals, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Kowar was part of the Royals' camp cuts Wednesday and the team is still deciding whether to deploy him as a starter or reliever. The first-round pick will stay stretched out this spring, but it's possible the organization ultimately determines he's best suited as a reliever. Kowar, 26, has struggled in both roles in the majors so far with a 9.16 ERA as a reliever and an even uglier 11.85 mark as a starter.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Optioned out to Triple-A

    The Royals optioned Kowar to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Optioned to Triple-A

    Kowar was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.

    Kowar was called up Wednesday, and he gave up two runs on two hits and two walks while failing to strike out a batter in one-third of an inning during Friday's game against the Yankees. He'll head back to the minors after Jonathan Heasley (shoulder) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Called up Wednesday

    Kowar was called up from Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

    Kowar will return to the Royals just one day after being sent down to Omaha. He'll replace Angel Zerpa (knee) on the active roster after the latter was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday. Kowar has produced a 8.80 ERA over 15.1 innings in six appearances with Kansas City this year.

  • Royals' Jackson Kowar: Heads to Omaha

    The Royals optioned Kowar to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Kowar threw two scoreless innings in his most recent appearance July 14, yet he still has an 8.80 ERA through six games this season. The righty figures to rejoin Kansas City for bullpen depth at some point in 2022.
