Kansas City Royals RP Dillon Gee (lung, shoulder) has been shut down for the season because of blood clouts in his lung and shoulder, according to manager Ned Yost.

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young has been moved to the bullpen. SPs Dillon Gee or Brian Flynn will "probably" start in his place Saturday, July 9.
Fantasy Tip: This move should surprise no one, as despite a solid first season with the Royals last year, Young has just been awful in 2016. Not only does he own a putrid 6.90 ERA and 1.63 WHIP, but the veteran had also surrendered a whopping 26 homers -- in just 60 total innings! Meanwhile, Gee and Flynn are not worth rushing to acquire, as neither has a high ceiling.

Kansas City Royals SP Dillon Gee was sent to Class AAA Omaha on Wednesday, June 1, as part of a flurry of roster moves. He was the winning starter for the Royals on Tuesday, May 31. In a related move, RP Peter Moylan was recalled.
Fantasy Tip: According to manager Ned Yost, Gee's demotion is only temporary, and the veteran will be back once he spends the requisite 10 days in the minors. It sounds like his time in the rotation is done, however, so if your were mining for wins in AL-only leagues you can safely drop Gee.

Kansas City Royals SP Dillon Gee (1-2) allowed six runs (five earned) on 10 hits in a loss to the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, May 25, with one walk and six strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Gee struggled mightily in his third start of the season against the team with the worst record in the majors, allowing 11 baserunners over four-plus innings. He should be viewed as a risky play for his next start against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 30.

Kansas City Royals SP Dillon Gee held the Atlanta Braves scoreless on three hits over the first five innings, but Gee retired only one of the six batters he faced in the sixth. He was charged with three runs and six hits, while striking out five and walking three, in a 5-0 loss on Saturday, May 14.
Fantasy Tip: This loss can't be pinned entirely on Gee, because Kansas City has really struggled as of late. However, you may want to hold off putting Gee in your fantasy lineup. Depending on how long the Royals staff may be in flux, there is a chance the team will go with other pitchers to fill the holes. If Gee can start and quickly show some good stuff, then his value goes up. For now, leave him alone.

Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen (shoulder) is dealing with right rotator cuff inflammation. His 15-day disabled list stint is retroactive to Wednesday, May 11. Manager Ned Yost said both Medlen and SP Chris R. Young (forearm) should be able to return when they're eligible to come off the DL. SPs Dillon Gee and Danny Duffy will serve as fill-in starters in the meantime. Gee will throw against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, May 14, and Duffy will go Sunday, May 15. Duffy will begin on a 50-pitch limit.
Fantasy Tip: Neither Medlen nor Young are guaranteed to return to a rotation spot when they're healthy after really struggling before their injuries. Gee and Duffy aren't long-term solutions and aren't attractive options for the spot starts despite juicy matchups against the Braves. Both Gee and Duffy are unlikely to pitch deep in their starts this weekend. Keep tabs on Kyle Zimmer and Miguel Almonte in the minors, as both young pitchers could become options for the rotation at some point this year.
