    News

    Bailey could remain in extended spring training for another start or two, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    The Royals don't need a fifth starter until the second week of the season. As such, Bailey may be held back to begin the year, allowing Kansas City to carry an extra reliever or bench player until the right-hander is needed in the rotation. The veteran owns a 4.05 ERA and 11:3 K:BB through 13.1 innings this spring.

    News

    Bailey is expected to open the season in the Royals' starting rotation, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

    Impact

    Ian Kennedy was sent to the bullpen Tuesday, all but confirming Bailey will break camp in Kansas City's starting rotation. The veteran hurler owns a brutal 6.25 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over parts of the last four seasons (231.2 innings), and he didn't necessarily turn any heads in camp, so it would be unwise to expect much from him in 2019.

    News

    Bailey allowed four hits and one walk while recording two strikeouts over four scoreless innings during Saturday's spring game against the Brewers.

    Impact

    Bailey joined the Royals on a minor-league deal in February after being released by the Dodgers and is attempting to crack the back end of the starting rotation. Saturday's outing was a step in the right direction, as the 32-year-old has now given up four runs on 12 hits across 7.1 spring innings.
