The Kansas City Royals recalled left-hander Kris Bubic from Triple-A Omaha to make Saturday’s start against the visiting Houston Astros.
The move was expected, as Bubic was in the Royals’ clubhouse prior to Friday’s series opener.
Bubic, 24, is 0-3 with a bloated 12.83 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in six games (five starts) with Kansas City this season. He didn’t fare much better in three starts in the minors, going 0-2 with a 6.59 ERA.
Bubic owns a 7-16 record with a 4.98 ERA in 45 career appearances (35 starts) with the Royals.
Kansas City optioned right-hander Ronald Bolanos following the team’s 10-3 loss to the Astros on Friday.
Bolanos, 25, has yet to record a decision while registering a 4.42 ERA in eight relief appearances this season with the Royals. He gave up three runs on 1/3 of an inning on Friday.
