Kansas City Royals OF David Lough (quadriceps) is playing at 80-85 percent health, and he'll take the next two games off. Lough left the game early with right quadriceps tightness Sunday, Aug. 4.

The Houston Astros acquired P Kyle Z. Smith from the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, July 31, in exchange for OF Justin Maxwell.
Fantasy Tip: Smith, only 20 years old, went 5-4 with a 2.85 ERA for Single-A Wilmington in 19 starts. He has a simple delivery and mainly relies on a low-90s fastball and an above-average curve. He'll need to improve his changeup to be successful as he moves up the minor league ladder. Smith might be an intriguing prospect with a ceiling of a mid-range starting pitcher, but it's too early to say.

Kansas City Royals OF Justin Maxwell is expected to share time in right field with OF David Lough.
Fantasy Tip: Lorenzo Cain's (groin) status may push Maxwell to center field for the short term. It's unclear how much Maxwell will play in favor of Lough, but it's probably not enough for him to gain relevance in deep mixed leagues, just yet.
