Marlins' Ronald Bolanos: Debuts at Triple-A Jacksonville
Bolanos, who signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on April 8, made his organizational debut Friday for Triple-A Jacksonville. He tossed four shutout innings against Nashville, striking out one while scattering two hits and one walk.
The 26-year-old right-hander will give the Marlins some added organizational starting depth while Miami has two members of its season-opening rotation (Trevor Rogers and Johnny Cueto) on the injured list. Bolanos has previously made five big-league starts, but he'll likely be behind at least Triple-A rotation mate Bryan Hoeing for a promotion when the Marlins require a replacement starter for Rogers beginning next week....

Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Outrighted to Triple-A
Bolanos cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
Bolanos lost his spot on the Royals' 40-man roster last week but will remain in Omaha after going unclaimed on waivers. Over nine appearances (four starts) in the minors this year, he's posted a 5.49 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 19.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Removed from 40-man roster
The Royals designated Bolanos for assignment Monday.
Bolanos was already off the 26-man active roster after being optioned to Triple-A Omaha on June 4, but his removal from the 40-man roster clears a spot for top prospect Vinnie Pasquantino, who was promoted from Omaha and will take over as Kansas City's everyday first baseman following Monday's trade of Carlos Santana to Seattle. Before he was demoted to Triple-A, Bolanos made eight appearances spanning 18.1 innings out of the Royals bullpen and posted a 4.42 ERA and 1.75 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Sent down Saturday
Bolanos was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday.
Bolanos returned from the COVID-19 injured list in late May, but he'll lose his spot on the active roster after he allowed three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out one in one-third of an inning Friday against the Astros. The right-hander's demotion makes room on the major-league roster for Kris Bubic, who was recalled to start Saturday against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Back from injured list
Bolanos (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Sunday.
Given that Bolanos spent only two days on the injured list, it was likely for a COVID-19-related reason that didn't result in an extended absence. The right-hander will resume his usual multi-inning role in the bullpen. Foster Griffin was optioned to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Moves to injured list
Bolanos (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list Friday without an injury designation.
Kansas City also didn't specify which list he was placed on, which often means the player landed on the COVID-19 IL. Assuming that's the case, Bolanos will be unavailable until he clears the league's testing protocols.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Effective over four innings
Bolanos allowed one run on two hits and two walks with four strikeouts in four relief innings in Saturday's 10-4 loss to the Rockies.
Bolanos spared the Royals' bullpen with his quality long-relief assignment behind an ineffective start from Carlos Hernandez. This was the longest of Bolanos' five appearances this season, and his four strikeouts marked a season high. The right-hander has a 2.77 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 9:10 K:BB across 13 innings, and his 6.04 FIP indicates he's gotten more than his fair share of good luck.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Sloppy in Wednesday's appearance
Bolanos allowed three runs on four hits and three walks with one strikeout in 2.2 innings during Wednesday's 10-0 loss to the Cardinals.
Bolanos was assigned to mop-up duty in an impromptu bullpen game. He allowed a sacrifice fly to Paul DeJong and a two-run home run to Tyler O'Neill. Prior to Wednesday, Bolanos had covered 4.1 scoreless innings to begin the year, though he's been generous with baserunners in all three of his outings. The right-hander has given up eight hits and seven walks across seven innings in a multi-inning role, so he should consider himself lucky to have a 3.86 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Recalled by Kansas City
Bolanos was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Thursday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Bolanos failed to land a spot on the Royals' Opening Day roster this year, but he'll now join the major-league club after Kyle Isbel was sent down. The right-hander has made three minor-league starts this season and has posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 13.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Headed to minors
Bolanos was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
Bolanos came up short in his pursuit of the Opening Day roster and will head to Triple-A, where he posted a 6.34 ERA and 1.73 WHIP with a 34:27 K:BB over 38.1 frames a season ago. He'll be a candidate for a midseason promotion should the Royals need bullpen help.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Activated and optioned
Bolanos (elbow) was activated off the 60-day injured list Monday and optioned to Triple-A Omaha.
Bolanos has been out since mid-June with a flexor strain. He'd only pitched three times at the big-league level this season before the injury, so it's unsurprising to see him remain in the minors now that he's healthy.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Rehab moves to Triple-A
Bolanos (elbow) moved his rehab assignment to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.
On the injured list since June 15 with a right flexor strain, Bolanos was cleared to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment just under two months later. After starting his rehab in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, Bolanos made his past three appearances at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, covering 6.1 total innings while serving up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and eight walks. He'll likely be in store for at least a couple appearances at Triple-A before the Royals consider bringing him back from the 60-day IL.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Rehab transferred to Double-A
Bolanos' (elbow) rehab assignment has been transferred to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.
Bolanos appeared in his first rehab game Aug. 13 and has allowed six runs in 2.1 innings across two relief appearances since then. The right-hander is scheduled to pitch at Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Friday as he continues to ramp up following his two-month absence due to a right flexor strain.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Rehabbing in ACL
Bolanos (elbow) was cleared to begin a rehab assignment with the Royals' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Tuesday.
Bolanos has been on the injured list since mid-June with a strained right elbow, but he looks like he's finally ready to ramp up again. The right-hander isn't eligible to return from the 60-day injured list until mid-August, so he'll likely make at least a few rehab start across multiple affiliates before being reinstated.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Bolanos (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.
Bolanos hit the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right flexor strain. The issue is evidently serious enough to keep him out for at least two months, ruling him out until mid-August. The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the Royals to select Anthony Swarzak's contract.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Lands on injured list
Bolanos was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right flexor strain Tuesday, retroactive to June 12.
Bolanos was called up by the Royals on June 3 and wound up making three relief appearances, allowing just one earned run on four hits across 6.1 innings. Unfortunately, he'll now be on the shelf until at least June 23, with a longer stay on the IL a possibility.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Works in bulk relief
Bolanos allowed a run on two hits and two walks while striking out four over 3.1 innings in Saturday's 11-2 loss to Oakland.
The right-hander was called on for a multi-inning appearance after starter Jackson Kowar was pulled with one out in the second inning. Bolanos fared better in his outing, but it didn't change the result of the game. The 24-year-old has a 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB across 6.1 innings this year. He worked as a starter with Triple-A Omaha this year, and Bolanos could tabbed for a spot in the rotation given Kowar's poor performance through two major-league starts.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Called up by Royals
Bolanos was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.
Bolanos served as the 27th man during a doubleheader in mid-May, but he failed to make an appearance in the twin bill. He'll now return to the major-league club after he posted a 3.31 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 16.1 innings during four starts with Triple-A Omaha this year. The right-hander will likely serve as a low-leverage reliever but could be available as a spot starter if needed.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Recalled for twin bill
Bolanos was recalled from Triple-A Omaha to serve as the 27th player during Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.
The 24-year-old missed out on the Opening Day roster but could make his season debut Friday. Bolanos should return to Omaha at the conclusion of the doubleheader.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Ronald Bolanos: Sent to Triple-A
Bolanos was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.
Bolanos made a few spot starts for the team in 2020, but he threw a total of only 3.2 innings. He struggled in that time, allowing five earned runs while striking out two and walking three. Bolanos will likely serve as rotation and bullpen depth for the team throughout the 2021 campaign.... See More ... See Less
