Royals | Kendrys Morales, Omar Infante sitting

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:28:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales (finger) and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. OF Brett Eibner is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth, while OF Whit Merrifield is starting at the keystone and hitting second against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Not much is going right for Morales this year. He's sporting an ugly .187/.247/.313 slash line with five home runs and 18 RBI and is expected to miss a few more days with his injury. Keep him benched where you own him until he shows signs of life and returns from injury. Both Merrifield and Eibner are worth looks in AL-only leagues for depth. They should both see decent playing time with Alex Gordon and Kendrys Morales hurt right now.

Royals | Kendrys Morales to miss several days

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:56:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals DH Kendrys Morales (finger) is expected to miss three to four days because of a sprained right middle finger.

Fantasy Tip: Morales is batting .187 with five home runs and 18 RBI through 45 games and has collected just two hits in his last 17 at-bats. He can be dropped in shallow mixed leagues and doesn't have much fantasy value outside of AL-only leagues at this point.

Royals | Kendrys Morales, Omar Infante sitting

Thu, 26 May 2016 14:47:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. OF Whit Merrifield is starting at second base and hitting second, while OF Brett Eibner is serving as the designated hitter and is batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: That's now two straight games Morales has sat out while posting an ugly slash line of .187/.247/.313 with five home runs and 18 RBI. If you own him in deep mixed and AL-only leagues bench him until he shows signs of life. You can consider cutting him in shallow leagues. Merrifield and Eibner could both see decent playing time with the injuries to Mike Moustakas (knee) and Alex Gordon (wrist), so consider adding them for depth in AL leagues for now.

Royals | Two Royals sitting Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 09:34:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales and OF Jarrod Dyson are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25. C Salvador Perez is in at designated hitter and hitting fifth, and OF Whit Merrifield is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Salvy has had a good month of May with a .309-3-10 line. He's a daily consideration at catcher. Merrifield is 6-for-18 (.333) with three doubles to begin his career. He's a basement option against Tyler Duffey.

Royals | Kendrys Morales, Jarrod Dyson out

Sun, 22 May 2016 10:14:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales and OF Jarrod Dyson are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Sunday, May 22. C Salvador Perez will serve as the designated hitter, while C Drew Butera will start at catcher and is batting ninth. OF Paulo Orlando will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Butera has a decent batting average but has only has 12 at-bats on the season, so owners should be able to find better players for their lineups. Orlando should be a solid starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues because he is hitting .533 with one home runs and six RBI over the last seven days.

Royals | Three Royals may have success Friday

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:32:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain, 1B Kendrys Morales and C Salvador Perez have all had some success in the last five years against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana, who they face Friday, May 20. Cain is hitting .319 with three RBI in 47 at-bats, Morales is hitting .308 with a home run and five RBI in 26 at-bats and Perez is hitting .378 with two long balls and eight RBI in 45 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Cain and Perez are must-start guys in all traditional formats and are likely popular plug-ins in daily lineups, too. However, Morales has been one of the bigger disappointments with just five home runs and a .195/.252/.336 line in 40 games. Keep in mind Quintana is not the same pitcher he's been in recent seasons, so all three hitters tonight could struggle. Morales is certainly one to avoid.

Royals | Righties shutting down Kendrys Morales

Sun, 15 May 2016 18:48:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales is hitting .143 against right-handed pitching this season.

Fantasy Tip: Morales is having a down year overall, and his awful numbers against righties aren't helping. You can hang on to him in AL-only formats, but feel free to shop for a better option in mixed leagues.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a rough start to the year for Morales. He is probably a hold in AL-only formats, but feel free to cut bait in mixed leagues.
