Royals | Three Royals out for Game 1

Wed, 18 May 2016 08:29:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez, 2B Omar Infante and OF Paulo Orlando are out for the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday, May 18. 2B Christian Colon, C Drew Butera and OF Jarrod Dyson are hitting in the final three spots in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Butera is 4-for-10 (.400) with three doubles on the season. He's a shot in the dark against knuckle-baller Steven Wright. Dyson has wheels, but he's hitting just .217. He and Colon aren't ripe DFS flyers today.

Royals | Christian Colon playing Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 12:15:30 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Christian Colon is back in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Saturday, May 14, batting eighth. 2B Omar Infante is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is batting .333 with three RBI in 30 at-bats versus right-handers this season and is 4-for-11 at the dish over the past week. He's worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy formats.

Royals | Omar Infante not in lineup again

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:47:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (rest) is not in the lineup for the second straight day Thursday, May 12. 2B Christian Colon is starting at second base and batting eighth opposite New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: Well, manager Ned Yost did say recently that he would feature Infante in the batting order less, specifically three to five days a week, which means more playing time for the soon-to-be 27-year-old Colon. However, he doesn't really merit being acquired, as his upside is extremely limited. In fact, he's still searching for his first career long ball after 187 at-bats.

Royals | Omar Infante out of the lineup

Wed, 11 May 2016 13:46:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Wednesday, May 11. SS Christian Colon will start at second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Colon has gone 4-for-13 with one RBI over the last seven days. Owners likely will be able to find better players to use in their lineups and could be avoided in most leagues.

Royals | Mike Moustakas scratched

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:43:19 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (thumb) was scratched from the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 2B Christian Colon is starting at third base and is hitting eighth. 2B Omar Infante, who was originally out of the lineup, is playing second base and hitting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Moose has missed a few games now with his nagging thumb ailment, so stay tuned for more updates on him. Hopefully for his owners it won't linger or affect his performance. Colon has a weak .200/.273/.250 slash line with four hits in 20 at-bats and is one to avoid in daily leagues tonight.

Royals | Omar Infante takes a seat

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:50:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 6. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and is hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is hitting only .200, and he has no home runs in his career. Avoid him everywhere, especially against one of the better pitchers in the AL in Salazar.

Royals | Mike Moustakas gets night off

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:20:51 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (rest) is not starting Monday, May 2. 2B Christian Colon is in his place at third base and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: In the past, Moustakas would regularly sit with a lefty on the hill, as he hit below .200 opposite southpaws pretty much every season up until a couple of years ago. That's not the case anymore, but regardless, Colon is getting a rare start with Moose on the bench. Daily owners can quickly overlook him, as the 27-year-old backup doesn't offer potential in any formats.

Royals | Mike Moustakas not in lineup

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 16:22:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Friday, April 15. 2B Omar Infante moves up to the two-hole, while 2B Christian Colon is starting at the hot corner and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Infante is off to a .310 start (9-for-29) with three doubles, but even with a move all the way up the batting order, he remains a low-end second base option in daily formats. Colon should be ignored everywhere.
