Royals | Alcides Escobar scratched Monday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:07:00 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (finger) was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, June 29. SS Christian Colon will start at shortstop and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been dealing with the injury for a few days, so owners should look for an update after the game. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 1-for-12 in limited playing time this month and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Royals | Mike Moustakas sitting out

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:18:58 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday, June 21. 2B Christian Colon will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could be sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has received only seven at-bats this month and has one hit. Owners on FantasyScore likely will be able to find better options to use for their lineups.

Royals | Omar Infante sitting out

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 08:17:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. 2B Christian Colon will take his place in the lineup and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the starting lineup soon. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has not seen a lot of playing time over the past few weeks, and owners on FantasyScore may want to consider spending a little extra money for a better option.

Royals | Mike Moustakas leaves early

Sat, 23 May 2015 22:23:33 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (clavicle) took a hopping ground ball from St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina to the collarbone region. Moustakas stayed in the game two more defensive innings and an at-bat before eventually leaving in the fifth inning. He is considered day-to-day and was replaced by 2B/SS Christian Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Moustakas' status for the Royals' matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, May 24. He currently costs $5,000 (10.0% of cap) on FantasyScore and is an iffy play due to possible soreness or limited range of motion, given his price point. Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) could be low-risk source of cap relief if Moustakas sits out Sunday.

Royals | Still no Omar Infante

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:06:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, April 23. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Chicago SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Infante in all fantasy formats Thursday, and don't expect much from Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), either. Sale is a high-end pitcher who looks in midseason form through his first two starts of the season. Aim higher than Colon.

Royals | Omar Infante remains out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:43:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has very little fantasy upside at the plate, especially at the bottom of KC's lineup. Milone is off to a strong start to the season, as well. It'd be wise to look elsewhere at second base at FantasyScore this evening.

Royals | Omar Infante out vs. Twins

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:22:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. 2B Christian Colon is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has two hits in 10 at-bats to begin the year, and he's not much of an offensive force for the Royals, especially hitting at the bottom of the order. He's a low-end second base option at FantasyScore with Infante injured.
