  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Optioned to Omaha

    Cuas was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

    Cuas picked up the win in his last appearance and has posted a 2.57 ERA in September, but his 1.86 WHIP this month suggests he got a bit lucky, and the Royals decided to remove him from the roster to open up a spot for fellow reliever Taylor Clarke.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Snags win Sunday

    Cuas (4-2) earned the win Sunday over the Mariners. He allowed two runs on two hits and three walks in 1.1 innings.

    Cuas was tasked with finishing off the fifth inning, and he also gave up a pair of runs in the top of the sixth. The Royals' offense then exploded for 11 runs in the bottom of the sixth to put the right-hander in line for the win. Prior to Sunday, Cuas had logged eight scoreless innings over his last 12 appearances. He now has a 3.58 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 34:24 K:BB while adding a save and 11 holds through 37.2 innings this year.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Collects third win

    Cuas (3-2) walked one and struck out two in 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday over the White Sox.

    Cuas completed the fifth inning after Brady Singer allowed five straight hits, including a three-run home run to Gavin Sheets in the middle. Cuas inherited runners on the corners with two outs and got Josh Harrison on a groundout before handling the sixth inning without trouble. The righty reliever owns a shaky 5.63 ERA through eight innings in August, picking up a save, two holds and a 1-1 record in 10 appearances. For the season, he's been a bit better with a 3.82 ERA, though his 1.63 WHIP and 26:19 K:BB through 30.2 innings are mostly uninspiring. With both Taylor Clarke (oblique) and Josh Staumont (biceps) out, Cuas and Dylan Coleman have served as high-leverage options preceding closer Scott Barlow.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Charged with second loss

    Cuas (2-2) allowed a run on two hits and a walk in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Sunday versus the Rays.

    Zack Greinke left Sunday's game after four innings due to forearm cramping. Cuas was the first reliever to get the ball, but he struggled and allowed an RBI single to Harold Ramirez that gave the Rays a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Since rejoining the major-league roster Aug. 9, Cuas has struggled a bit, surrendering four runs on six hits and three walks across 4.1 innings through six appearances. He now has a 4.00 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 22:17 K:BB while adding a save and nine holds through 27 innings this year.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Notches first save

    Cuas earned the save in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox by not allowing a baserunner and recording a strikeout over two-thirds of an inning. He also pitched in Game 2 and gave up a run on one hit with one strikeout and one walk in one inning.

    Closer Scott Barlow entered during the eighth inning of the matinee to get out of a jam with two runners on and one out, and Cuas was called upon for the save after Dylan Coleman gave up a run while recording only one out. Cuas was promoted from Triple-A Omaha ahead of Tuesday's twin bill and has a 3.33 ERA and eight holds in 29 outings this year, and he shouldn't be expected to be a factor for saves going forward.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Called up Tuesday

    Cuas was called up from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

    Cuas will return to the big leagues after being sent down Aug. 2. The right-hander has produced a 3.18 ERA and 1.54 WHIP with 19 strikeouts over 22.2 innings in 27 appearances with the Royals this year. He'll replace Taylor Clarke (oblique) in the bullpen after Clarke was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Jettisoned to Triple-A

    Cuas was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

    The Royals needed to open up a roster spot for Luke Weaver, and Cuas will be the pitcher who heads to the minors in the corresponding move. He has posted a 3.18 ERA over 22.2 big-league innings this season, so chances are he will rejoin the big club at some point before the campaign comes to a close.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Takes first loss

    Cuas (2-1) allowed four runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Tigers.

    Cuas was responsible for the Tigers' four-run rally in the seventh inning, though a trio of errors from his teammates didn't help the cause. July's taken a shaky turn for Cuas, who has surrendered six runs (three earned) in his last 5.2 innings across eight appearances. He'd allowed only three earned runs in his first full month in the majors. The right-hander has pitched to a 3.06 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 13:11 K:BB across 17.2 innings overall, and while he's added five holds, the lingering control issues make him difficult to trust.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Collects second win

    Cuas (2-0) retired the only batter he faced Sunday versus the Tigers, picking up the win.

    Starter Brady Singer cruised through four innings but got into trouble in the fifth. Cuas then entered the game and retired Javier Baez on a lineout to escape a bases-loaded situation unscathed. The Royals didn't relinquish the lead, allowing Cuas to snag his second win of the year. He's put together a 3.2-inning scoreless streak over his last five outings, and he's still yet to give up more than a run in any appearance. The 28-year-old owns a 1.98 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 10:6 K:BB with four holds in 13.2 innings across 17 appearances.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Clean inning Tuesday

    Cuas struck out one in a perfect inning during Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Rangers.

    Cuas has seen more high-leverage work in the last couple of weeks, picking up his lone win and all three of his holds in his last six appearances. The right-hander has brought some stability to a volatile Royals bullpen, though he's mostly still a mid-leverage option. Through 12 innings overall, he has a 2.25 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 9:5 K:BB.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Snags win Wednesday

    Cuas (1-0) walked one and struck out one in a scoreless inning, earning the win Wednesday versus the Giants.

    Cuas was in the game when the Royals pulled ahead in the eighth inning, and Scott Barlow was able to record a five-out save. Through nine appearances spanning 8.1 innings, Cuas has logged a 1.08 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with a 7:4 K:BB. His win Wednesday was the first of his major-league career. He continues to be effective in a limited role, though his appearance in this contest indicates he's earned some trust from manager Mike Matheny.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Effective since call-up

    Cuas has posted a 1.23 ERA in 7.1 innings since his contract was selected from Triple-A Omaha on May 31.

    While he's yet to record a decision, a save or a hold, Cuas has held his own in a low-leverage role. The right-hander has a 6:3 K:BB and 0.95 WHIP. Considering the Royals' bullpen ERA as a team is 4.86 (third-worst in the majors), Cuas' success has to be considered a positive. If he can keep it going, he could push for some high-leverage chances eventually.

  • Royals' Jose Cuas: Contract selected Monday

    Cuas' contract was selected by the Royals on Monday.

    Cuas was promoted to Triple-A Omaha late in 2021, and he began the 2022 season in Omaha after serving as a non-roster invitee this spring. Over 23 relief appearances at the Triple-A level, the 27-year-old has posted a 1.40 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 25.2 innings. The right-hander hasn't yet made his major-league debut but will provide assistance in the bullpen after the Royals placed several relievers on the COVID-19 injured list Monday.
