Royals | Greg Holland to start throwing

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 10:43:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (pectoral) has been cleared to resume throwing and is scheduled to play catch Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Holland probably is a few weeks away from returning to the team, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Wade Davis likely will close games until Holland returns and should be owned in most leagues.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain suspended

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:33:53 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain has been suspended two games for his involvement in an altercation with the Chicago White Sox earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) may decide to appeal his suspension, which will keep him on the field for the time being. Cain has at least one it in all but two games he has played in this season and is batting .390 with two home runs, 12 RBI and five steals. Cain is a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Royals | Edinson Volquez receives suspension

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:28:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez has been suspended five games for his involvement in an altercation with the Chicago White Sox earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance that Volquez ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) appeals the suspension, so he could still make his next scheduled start. He has pitched well early in the season and could be a solid option on FantasyScore as long as he is active.

Royals | Yordano Ventura suspended seven games

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:21:18 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura has been suspended seven games for his involvement in an altercation with the Chicago White Sox earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been involved with several altercations this season but this will be his first suspension. Owners will need to monitor the situation since he could continue to pitch if he decides to appeal the suspension.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain ejected in brawl

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:13:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain was ejected Thursday, April 24, after a bench-clearing brawl with the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what his role in the fray was, but Paulo Orlando ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) would benefit if Cain misses time. He's hitting .237 with one steal this year, so he doesn't have much FantasyScore appeal.

Royals | Edinson Volquez ejected Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:12:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez was ejected Thursday, April 24, for his role in a bench-clearing brawl with the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: It looked like Volquez threw a punch. That would land him a seat for a start or two. Have your bases covered in traditional formats if so.

Royals | Yordano Ventura ejected in fracas

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:07:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura was ejected Thursday, April 24, for his role in a bench-clearing brawl with the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura had a pretty big role in the altercation, and it's hard to imagine him not getting suspended. With this situation on the heels of his altercation with Brett Lawrie, he could miss multiple games. Chris R. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) could be stretched out from the bullpen in order to cover a start, and he might have some low-end upside on FantasyScore depending on the matchup.

Royals | Greg Holland to be re-evaluated Saturday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:32:24 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (pectoral) will be re-evaluated Saturday, April 25, to see if he can resume a throwing program.

Fantasy Tip: Holland's pectoral has a Grade 1 strain, which is the lowest grade, and the organization is optimistic he'll return in approximately two weeks. In Holland's absence, Wade Davis will look after the ninth inning, and Davis should be owned in all formats. Continue to check back for updates on Holland's recovery and return timeline.

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 | Greg Holland's MRI results

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:08:17 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland's (pectoral) MRI revealed his pectoral has a Grade 1 strain. The organization is still optimistic he will be ready to return in two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Wade Davis, who should have been owned in the majority of leagues anyway, figures to see most save chances. He is a high-end reliever in the role, too. Continue to check back for updates on Holland's recovery and return timeline. He should be stashed in all leagues.
