  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Rocky start to end season

    Heasley (4-10) took the loss Wednesday, allowing six runs on nine hits and two walks over five innings against the Guardians. He struck out four.

    The Guardians got to Heasley early, tagging him for four runs in the first inning and one run in both the second and third innings. The start comes after he allowed four earned runs over 4.2 innings in his prior start and seven runs three appearances before that. Over 104 innings on the campaign, Heasley earned a 5.28 ERA and 1.49 WHIP with 70 punchouts.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Takes ninth loss

    Heasley (4-9) allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and one walk while striking out one across 4.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against Detroit.

    Heasley was hit hard throughout his start, as he allowed five extra-base hits -- including two homers. He entered the game having tallied a quality start in three of his last four appearances, though he also allowed seven earned runs in the other start during that span. Heasley should take one more turn through the rotation this season, and he'll enter that contest with a 5.00 ERA and 66:45 K:BB across 99 innings.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Earns fourth win

    Heasley (4-8) allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out three across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Twins.

    Heasley got 11 flyball outs and successfully kept the ball in the yard to turn in his second consecutive quality start. Since being recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Aug. 9, Heasley has maintained an impressive 3.26 ERA. However, that has come with a 24:16 K:BB across 38.2 frames. Despite the strong results of late, Heasley owns only a 4.87 ERA across 94.1 innings for the season.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Turns in scoreless outing

    Heasley allowed two hits and three walks over 6.2 shutout frames against the Red Sox on Friday. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

    Heasley was in line for a win before Boston came back and took the lead in the eighth inning. He produced 10 swinging strikes, his highest total since forcing a season-high 13 against Texas on May 12. The 25-year-old righty is now sporting a 5.09 ERA on the year, though he's registered a solid 3.86 ERA over his last six starts. Heasley is expected to face the Twins at home next week.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Torched for seven runs in loss

    Heasley (3-8) took the loss to the Tigers on Saturday, allowing seven runs on seven hits while striking none out and walking four over four innings.

    Heasley had a rough outing Saturday, allowing seven runs to cross the plate. He threw 48 of 81 pitches for strikes, but he was unable to strike out a single batter in the contest and was pulled after four frames. This was his worst performance since another seven-run outing in June and comes off the heels of a seven-inning win against the Tigers when he allowed just two runs. The young righty's ERA now sits at an unimpressive 5.51.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Goes seven innings in win

    Heasley (3-7) picked up the win against the Tigers on Saturday, allowing two runs on eight hits while striking out two and walking two over seven innings.

    Heasley threw 65 of 108 pitches for strikes across seven frames, his second time throwing more than 100 pitches and lasting through the seventh inning this season. He earned a quality start in the contest, his fifth of the year and his first since July 4. The righty allowed ten baserunners in the game, but was able to limit the damage to just two runs. The performance lowered Heasley's ERA to 4.98.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Strikes out seven in win

    Heasley (2-7) gave up three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings to earn the win in a 15-7 victory over the Padres on Sunday.

    Heasley gave up a pair of home runs to Manny Machado but did just enough to earn his second win of the 2022 campaign. He threw 51 of his 85 pitches for strikes and tied his career-best with seven strikeouts. The 26-year-old rookie has an ERA of 5.22 and a WHIP of 1.54 in 70.2 innings pitched. The likelihood of Heasley picking up any more wins down the stretch will be linked to whether the Royals decide to let him go longer into games in his final handful of starts. He is expected to take the mound in a favorable matchup at Detroit later in the week.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Records scoreless start

    Heasley gave up four hits and four walks while striking out two over 4.2 scoreless innings in a 7-3 loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Heasley was recalled from Triple-A to make the start in lieu of Brad Keller who was moved to the bullpen last week. Heasley had struggled in 13 previous starts this season, but he managed to hold the Diamondbacks off the board through 4.2 innings on 79 pitches. Heasley's four walks could have gotten him into trouble against a stronger lineup. The 25-year-old right-hander has a 48:33 K:BB through 65 innings pitched. He is tentatively expected to make his next start at the White Sox, when he will look for his second win of the season.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Officially recalled for start

    The Royals recalled Heasley from Triple-A Omaha ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks in Kansas City.

    Reliever Collin Snider was moved to Triple-A to clear a spot on the 26-man active roster for Heasley, who is set to make his 14th start of the season for Kansas City after generating a 5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 46:29 over his previous 61 innings in the big leagues. Heasley will be taking over the rotation spot of Brad Keller, who was moved to the bullpen last week.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Rejoining big-league rotation

    The Royals will call Heasley up from Triple-A Omaha to start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks in Kansas City.

    He'll be moving back into the rotation as a replacement for Max Castillo, who was optioned to Triple-A on Saturday. Over his previous 13 starts with the big club this season, Heasley has produced a 5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 46:29 K:BB in 61 innings.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Sent down after loss

    Heasley (1-7) was optioned to Triple-A Omaha after taking the loss in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox. He gave up two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk over 5.1 innings.

    The right-hander was called up as the 27th man to start Tuesday's nightcap, and the only runs he allowed came via solo homers from Lenyn Sosa and Yoan Moncada. It was Heasley's third straight loss in the majors, and he now has a 5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 46:29 K:BB over 61 innings.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Getting spot start in doubleheader

    The Royals recalled Heasley from Triple-A Omaha and designated him as the 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the White Sox. He's expected to start the second game of the twin bill, according to Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Meanwhile, right-hander Brady Singer is expected to get the starting nod for the Royals in the early game. After a week-long stint in the minors, Heasley will be joining the Royals to make his 13th start of the season before likely heading back to Omaha. Over 55.2 big-league innings on the campaign, Heasley has produced a 5.82 ERA and 1.56 WHIP.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Takes sixth loss

    Heasley (1-6) allowed six runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out one across 3.1 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Yankees.

    Heasley made his first start since July 9 after spending three weeks on the injured list. He received a rude welcome from the Yankees, as both DJ LeMahieu and Aaron Judge took Heasley yard to account for three of his earned runs. Heasley has had an up-and-down season for the Royals, allowing at least four earned runs in four of his last five appearances after logging a 3.62 ERA through his first six outings. That has resulted in a 5.50 ERA and 1.51 WHIP across 52.1 innings on the campaign.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Moves to Triple-A

    The Royals optioned Heasley to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

    Heasley's demotion comes after he was blitzed for six earned runs over 3.1 innings in his return from the 15-day injured list in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Yankees. Though he'll be heading to the minors, Heasley shouldn't have to wait too long before re-entering the big-league rotation. The Royals will have doubleheaders on consecutive days in the second week of August and will need to temporarily implement a seven-man rotation, and Heasley is a prime candidate to step in as a spot starter.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Returns from injured list Saturday

    Heasley (shoulder) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Saturday against the Yankees, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Heasley landed on the shelf with shoulder tendinitis July 10 and will return Saturday after spending a little more than the 15-day minimum on the IL. The right-hander threw 60 pitches across 3.1 innings during his lone minor-league rehab start, so he's likely to face some minor workload limitations in his first game back in the majors.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Activated prior to start

    Heasley (shoulder) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Saturday's start against the Yankees.

    Heasley spent just under three weeks on the injured list due to right shoulder tendinitis, but he tossed 60 pitches during a rehab start at Triple-A Omaha on Sunday. He'll likely have his pitch count monitored during Saturday's matchup and will attempt to improve upon his results since he posted a 9.56 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 16 innings over his four starts leading up to his absence.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Tosses 60 pitches in rehab start

    Heasley (shoulder) covered 3.1 innings and gave up four runs (one earned) on six hits and zero walks while striking out three in his rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Omaha.

    Heasley threw 60 pitches (40 strikes) in the outing, and while the Royals haven't determined the right-hander's next step, he may need one additional minor-league rehab start before slotting back into Kansas City's rotation. Before going on the shelf July 10 with right shoulder tendinitis, Heasley turned in a 5.50 ERA and 1.51 WHIP across 52.1 innings over his 11 starts for the Royals.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Launching rehab assignment

    Heasley (shoulder) will start his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

    Heasley has been out since July 10 with right shoulder tendinitis, but he appears to be on track to return to the Royals' rotation in the next week or so. The 25-year-old has produced a 5.50 ERA and 1.51 WHIP with 40 strikeouts over 52.1 innings in 11 starts this year.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Out with shoulder tendinitis

    Heasley was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder tendinitis.

    Heasley surrendered six runs (five earned) over 1.1 innings Sunday against Cleveland and is now headed to the injured list. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but the right-hander will be eligible to rejoin the active roster shortly after the All-Star break, which ends July 22.

  • Royals' Jonathan Heasley: Crushed by Cleveland

    Heasley (1-5) took the loss during Saturday's 13-1 defeat at the hands of the Guardians, allowing six runs (five earned) on six hits and a hit batter with two strikeouts in 1.1 innings.

    Heasley didn't have his stuff working from the start and it showed as he surrendered two runs on four baserunners in the first inning and four runs on four baserunners (including one that reached on an error) in the second before being pulled. The 25-year-old has now permitted at least five runs in two of his last three starts, causing his ERA to inflate from a decent 4.14 to 5.50 during the three-game stretch. Heasley is currently scheduled to take the mound again midweek in a road start in Toronto.
