Royals | Alex Gordon likely headed for fifth spot

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 21:12:17 -0800

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is likely headed out of the leadoff spot and to the fifth spot following the acquisition of OF Norichika Aoki. "You never know what's going to happen with injuries (or) how people are going to play," Gordon said. "We're going to iron all that out in spring training." Manager Ned Yost has said Gordon will fall into the fifth spot behind 2B Omar Infante, 1B Eric Hosmer and DH Billy Butler.

Fantasy Tip: A move for Gordon to the fifth spot will provide many more RBI opportunities. His runs scored might take a hit, but his power numbers should rise. His fantasy appeal is on the way up batting in the middle of the order.

Royals | Eric Hosmer plays right field Saturday

Sat, 03 Aug 2013 13:33:00 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer started in right field against the New York Mets Saturday, Aug. 3, with DH Billy Butler starting at first base. Manager Ned Yost wanted to have both Hosmer and Butler in the lineup in a National League stadium because C Salvador Perez was getting the day off. "It definitely affects your defense, but you can't have it both ways in a National League game, so you've got to pick what you need," Yost said before the game. "And then hopefully we can get the lead and we can readjust in the sixth inning and get our defensive alignment right. But we've got to have the lead first."

Royals | Billy Butler won't play this weekend

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 16:20:45 -0700

The New York Mets will be starting three right-handed pitchers, which makes it easy to keep 1B Eric Hosmer at first base. Hosmer is hitting .308 with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs in 48 games since June 7.
