Coleman broke out with Kansas City in 2022 but regressed in a big way in 2023, posting an 8.84 ERA and 21:19 K:BB over 18.1 innings during his time in the majors. There's stuff to work with here, though, and the Astros have a good reputation when it comes to getting the most out of their pitchers.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Optioned to Triple-A
Coleman was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.
Coleman's season struggles continued Monday when he allowed a walk-off home run after hitting a batter in a 6-4 loss to the Athletics. Zack Greinke (elbow) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Gets walked off
Coleman (0-2) allowed two runs on one hit and a hit-by-pitch without recording an out to take the loss Monday versus the Athletics.
Coleman plunked Ryan Noda and then served up a walk-off two-run home run to Brent Rooker in the ninth inning. The right-hander has nine appearances in August, but he's completed an inning in just three of them. He's given up five runs (four earned) over 5.2 frames this month, and a 7:7 K:BB and four hit batsmen indicates unsteady control. Overall, Coleman has an 8.84 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 21:19 K:BB through 18.1 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Takes first loss
Coleman (0-1) allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Mariners.
Coleman loaded the bases with an error, a hit and a walk, and then yielded a sacrifice fly. The Mariners held the lead the rest of the way, sticking Coleman with his first loss in 21 major-league appearances this year. He's avoided taking more defeats simply because the Royals are often already behind when he pitches. For the year, he's managed an awful 8.31 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 20:18 K:BB through 17.1 innings, though he's also managed to earn four holds.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Opening Friday
Coleman will serve as the Royals' opening pitcher for Friday's game against the Cardinals, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Coleman hasn't performed very well in the majors this season, accumulating a 10.05 ERA and 2.09 WHIP through 14.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Recalled from Omaha
Kansas City recalled Coleman from Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.
Coleman has surrendered 10 earned runs on seven hits and seven walks in just five innings of relief this season at the major-league level, but the Royals are desperate for fresh arms. He'll presumably operate in a low-leverage bullpen role.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Sent down to Triple-A
Coleman was optioned to Triple-A Omaha by the Royals on Thursday.
Coleman came into the season seemingly poised for an integral late-inning relief role following a nice 2022 campaign. However, he struggled in his first five innings this year, getting pummeled for 10 runs with a 5:7 K:BB. Coleman is a good bet to bounce back but will work out the kinks at Omaha for a while....

Royals' Dylan Coleman: Decent work in spring
Coleman has allowed one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out six over three innings across three Cactus League appearances.
Coleman was one of the Royals' more effective relievers in 2022, posting a 2.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 71:37 K:BB and 16 holds over 68 games. The walk issues are still popping up this spring, and Coleman's 3.87 FIP last year suggests regression could be on the way if he can't improve at limiting baserunners.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Grabs win Tuesday
Coleman (5-2) gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning to earn the win Tuesday over the Twins.

Coleman has been scored upon in only five of his 24 appearances since the All-Star break. He owns a 2.61 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 64:36 K:BB with 14 holds through 62 innings this season.... See More ...

Royals' Dylan Coleman: Tagged with loss
Coleman (4-2) allowed two runs on two walks in one-third of an inning Friday, taking the loss versus the Red Sox.
Coleman walked two of the first three batters in the eighth inning, and closer Scott Barlow then allowed both of those runners to score. Coleman's only other loss this year came back on May 1. He saw a 9.1-inning scoreless streak snapped with the sloppy outing Friday, which also lifted his ERA to 2.66 with a 1.25 WHIP and 63:36 K:BB through 61 innings this year. He's added 13 holds and two blown saves while emerging as a setup man for the Royals, though their poor play has offered him few chances to pitch with a lead.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Collects fourth win
Coleman (4-1) allowed a hit and struck out one over 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday over the Tigers.
Coleman got the last out of the seventh inning and became the pitcher of record when Bobby Witt put the Royals ahead in the eighth with an RBI double.

He's allowed two runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out 16 over 14.2 innings, and he's added five holds and two wins in those 14 appearances. He has a 2.54 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 59:34 K:BB with 13 holds and two blown saves through 56.2 innings overall. The right-hander would likely be a secondary option for saves should Scott Barlow be unavailable at any point.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Snags third win
Coleman (3-1) pitched a perfect inning to earn the win Saturday over the Red Sox.

Since the start of July, Coleman has allowed four runs (three earned) in 13.2 innings while adding five holds as he continues to work his way into a higher-leverage role. For the season, he owns a 2.80 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 44:31 K:BB in addition to nine holds through 45 innings.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Comes off restricted list

Royals' Dylan Coleman: Moved to restricted list

Royals' Dylan Coleman: Clean inning in Wednesday's win
Coleman struck out one in a perfect inning during Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Astros, earning a hold.
Since the start of June, Coleman has a 2.77 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 12:7 K:BB across 13 innings, and he's also picked up four of his five holds this year in that span. The right-hander's biggest issue is a high walk rate -- he's posted a 6.5 BB/9 this year, which is a trouble that's followed him from the minors. He's pitched to a decent 3.51 ERA, but a 1.38 WHIP and 36:24 K:BB in 33.1 innings this year are concerning enough to likely keep him stuck in middle relief.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Dylan Coleman: Collects second win
Coleman (2-1) walked one and struck out none in a scoreless inning to earn the win Tuesday versus the Angels.
Coleman successfully kept the game tied in the 10th inning, and the Royals pulled ahead in the 11th. Across eight innings in June, Coleman has allowed one run, three hits and six walks with nine strikeouts. He's added two holds and a win in that span, though control remains an issue for the hard-throwing right-hander. Overall, he's logged a 3.18 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, 33:23 K:BB and three holds in 28.1 innings this season without presenting much of a challenge to Scott Barlow for the closer role.... See More ... See Less
