Royals put Jake Junis (undisclosed) on IL
The Kansas City Royals placed RHP Jakob Junis (undisclosed) on the 10-day injured list.
The Royals didn't provide a reason. His absence creates an opening in the rotation to start the season, potentially for Jesse Hahn. Kansas City may also opt to use "openers" for certain games instead of traditional starting pitchers. Junis posted a disappointing 5.24 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 164 strikeouts and 58 walks over 175 1/3 innings (31 starts) last season.
numberFire's models expect Junis to record a 4.63 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 57 strikeouts and 20 walks over 64 innings this season.
