Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:16:53 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales is hitting third Saturday, July 25, against Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman.

Fantasy Tip: Morales ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is just 2-for-16 (.125) against Feldman and is hitting just .240 the last seven days. It's still difficult to find a three-hole hitter this cheap on FantasyScore. He's worth the roll of the dice.

Royals | Eric Hosmer in two-hole

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 08:05:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer is hitting second Thursday, July 9, with 1B Kendrys Morales taking the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) loses some luster on FantasyScore, and he's hitting just .179 this month. Morales ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been decent with a .267-1-8 line this month, and he makes an excellent play today against Nathan Karns. This could be a frequent arrangement with Alex Gordon (groin) out.

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:11:25 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is expected to miss a few games because of a finger injury. Owners should monitor the situation to see when he will be able to play. Morales ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has at least one hit in 11 straight games and is a sold starting option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Salvador Perez hitting fifth

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 15:41:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez will bat fifth in the order Tuesday, June 16, against the Milwaukee Brewers and RHP Matt Garza. 1B/DH Kendrys Morales isn't in the starting lineup with the game being played in Milwaukee.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) can be a given a bit of a boost on FantasyScore thanks to the promotion but the biggest reason should be his play at the plate of late. Perez has four multi-hit games in his past five, for a total of eight hits in 21 plate appearances. Perez should be considered a strong option at the catcher position, as he has hit four home runs since June 6.

Fantasy Tip: Due to this interleague matchup taking place in a National League park, Hosmer ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) finds himself riding the pine today. Morales ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is batting .286 with seven homers and 41 RBIs through 58 games this year.

Royals | Kendrys Morales sitting vs. Cards

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:50:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales is not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to utilize Morales ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) as a designated hitter, the Royals may opt to roll without him in the lineup this weekend. However, don't rule out him starting one game at first base to provide Eric Hosmer an off day. Morales is having a bounce-back season, and currently boasts a .287/.349/.468 slash line with 33 runs, seven home runs and 41 RBI.
