Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) is batting leadoff and playing right field Friday, July 11, against the Detroit Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: Return Aoki to your lineups in AL-only formats, but he'll face stingy Anibal Sanchez, so it isn't an ideal matchup. He has mixed league potential but hasn't had a great start in Kansas City and will likely split time with Jarrod Dyson, at least initially.

Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) isn't expected to rejoin the club on their current road trip, per manager Ned Yost.
Fantasy Tip: The last game of the road trip is Wednesday, July 9, so he may return next week, at earliest. But he's in jeopardy of losing playing time to Jarrod Dyson anyway.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said the plan at this point is for OF Norichika Aoki (groin) to return the starting lineup when he comes off the 15-day disabled list, but Yost indicated the plan could change when Aoki is healed. Aoki could be part of a platoon with OF Jarrod Dyson when he returns, because he hits better against left-handed pitchers than he does right-handed pitchers.

The Kansas City Royals have placed OF Norichika Aoki (groin) on the 15-day disabled list because of a groin injury. The team has also purchased the contract of OF Justin Maxwell from Triple-A Omaha.
Fantasy Tip: With Aoki out, Jarrod Dyson probably will receive most of the time in the outfield until Aoki returns. Dyson could be a decent short-term option for owners in deeper leagues.

Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki won't lose at-bats to OF Jarrod Dyson, according to manager Ned Yost.
Fantasy Tip: Aoki has not lived up to his high-BA reputation in his first KC campaign. The SB potential is the chief reason to keep him in your deep fantasy lineup. Dyson is a stash or watch candidate if you're looking to speculate.

The Kansas City Royals placed OF Jarrod Dyson on the bereavement list Friday, April 18.
Fantasy Tip: With Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) on the DL, Justin Maxwell will have center field all to himself for at least the next couple of days. Add Maxwell immediately in AL-only leagues for short-term outfield help.

The Kansas City Royals placed OF Lorenzo Cain (groin) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 17, and recalled SP Justin Marks from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Jarrod Dyson should benefit the most with Cain heading to the sidelines, but he could enter into a platoon in center field with Justin Maxwell. Add Dyson in deep mixed leagues and AL-onlys if your outfield depth is hurting.

Kansas City Royals OFs Jarrod Dyson and Justin Maxwell are both out of options and at least one of the two is expected to make the team as a reserve outfielder.
