Royals' Finnegan serves up three-run home run, earns victory
|(4/29/15) Making his season debut for the Royals, left-hander Brandon Finnegan recorded his first career regular-season win in Tuesday's game against the Indians.|
Finnegan, who was recalled from Double-A on Friday, entered Tuesday's contest in the bottom of the sixth inning with two runners on and no outs, and the Royals clinging to a 3-2 lead.
He immediately served up a three-run home run to Brandon Moss, but the Royals would take the lead back in the top of the seventh. They would hold on to defeat the Indians, 11-5, with Finnegan earning the win.
"I definitely wanted it to come on better terms," he said, per MLB.com. "But the team had my back. We came back and got six in the next inning. That's the type of team we have -- they never stop fighting."
Finnegan, who had not pitched in 10 days, posted a 3.86 ERA in two games (both starts) in Double-A this season.
Royals recall Brandon Finnegan, send down Orlando Calixte

|(4/24/15) The Royals brought up pitcher Brandon Finnegan on Friday and sent down shortstop Orlando Calixte to its Triple-A affiliate, the team announced.
Finnegan started the season at Double-A, while Calixte was 0 for 2 in his lone appearance this season.
Manager Ned Yost said Finnegan will work out of the bullpen initially and he does not have a definitive role for him yet, reports The Kansas City Star.
Royals' Finnegan to open the season in rotation at Double-A
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Royals prospect Brandon Finnegan, who was optioned to the minors Sunday, will open the season in the rotation at Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Finnegan lost out on his bid for a spot on the major-league roster following a disappointing spring (8.53 ERA).
“We think that’s the best place for him to start,” general manager Dayton Moore, per The Kansas City Star. “I mean, we could do it either way. But as I’ve said before, we’re still learning about Brandon.”
Finnegan, who was drafted 17th overall in the 2014 MLB Draft, totaled 145 2/3 innings last year between the minors, majors and college. The Royals intend to monitor his workload in 2015 after he sped through the minors last season on his way to pitching out of the Royals' bullpen.
“Our medical team is very content with where he is,” Moore said. “But, let’s face it: It’s moved very, very fast for Brandon. We have to take into his account his workload over the last 18 months. That’s what we continue to evaluate.”
Moore also added he is not disappointed with how Finnegan performed this spring.
“We felt very good about the quality of his stuff and the way he presented himself,” Moore said. “He’s a big part of our future.”
Ned Yost: Brandon Finnegan's decision will come down to final week
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Royals manager Ned Yost told reporters that a decision on Brandon Finnegan's role won't be made until the final week of the season, per MLB.com. The team has yet to decide if they will use him as a reliever, and will keep him in the mix for at least the next 10 days. Finnegan has made three relief appearances, registering a 7.20 ERA over seven innings of work.
The Royals will extend him for approximately 20-25 pitches during his next outing on Saturday.
"We will extend him out, back him down, extend him out, back him down," Yost said. "We're trying to sharpen him up. We had him at [about] 45 pitches and he wasn't sharp. So we back him off and see if we can get him sharp."
