Royals | Mike Moustakas sits again

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 08:19:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Mike Moustakas isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Toronto Blue Jays. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert will start at third base and hit eighth in the order, while 2B Ben Zobrist will start in left field and hit second against RHP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Cuthbert ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) went 0-for-3 with a strikeout Saturday against Mark Buehrle. Cuthbert shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.

Royals | Ben Zobrist delivers for new team

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:37:05 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist Zobrist went 3-or-4 with a solo home run from each side of the plate and three runs scored in a 7-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: After going hitless in his first two games with Kansas City, Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) delivered in a big way Saturday. He should be a much steadier option at FantasyScore now that he is part of Kansas City's potent lineup.

Royals | No Mike Moustakas vs. Toronto

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 07:04:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas is not in the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1. 3B Cheslor Cuthbert is starting at third base and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moustakas ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Saturday. He is likely just receiving a day off against the crafty southpaw. Cuthbert ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has gone 6-for-19 through six games to start his big league career, but he remains nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Saturday.

Royals | Ben Zobrist batting second vs. Jays

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 06:58:24 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist is playing left field and batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has hit sixth in his first two games with the Royals, and stands to receive a fantasy boost hitting higher in the order. Zobrist is pricey, though, and their might not be enough juice for the squeeze to roster him at FantasyScore Saturday.

Royals | Chris Young bumped from rotation

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:53:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young will be removed from the starting rotation and head to the bullpen to make room for SP Johnny Cueto, according to manager Ned Yost. SP Jeremy Guthrie stays in the rotation for now.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) what little value he had in much deeper leagues now that he's not starting. However, Guthrie may not be long for the rotation if he continues to be hit hard, so there may be an avenue for Young to hop back in and start some games down the stretch.

Royals | Jeremy Guthrie to remain in rotation

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 13:26:34 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie will remain in the starting rotation for now and will have his next outing against the Chicago White Sox, according to manager Ned Yost. However, Yost also said Guthrie will be evaluated "week-to-week."

Fantasy Tip: Guthrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has allowed 11 earned runs and four home runs in his last two starts to raise his ERA to 5.65 on the season. A matchup against the suddenly hot White Sox in his next start only makes things worse. Avoid Guthrie for now on FantasyScore, and he's only an option for owners in the deepest of leagues.

Royals | Quiet debut for Ben Zobrist

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 19:08:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist went 0-for-4 in his team debut in a 5-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is right at his career average of .264 for this season, but his numbers should improve now that he is part of a solid Kansas City offense. Once he starts a hot streak, feel free to plug him in at FantasyScore.

Royals | No Alex Rios Thursday

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:34:37 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Rios is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in right field and is hitting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: The acquisition of Ben Zobrist could wind up hurting Rios the most. Dyson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap), who has been very valuable for his speed for KC, could wind up in a platoon situation with either Zobrist or Rios. Dyson is a value pick on FantasyScore for his stolen base threat, but hitting at the bottom of the order limits his upside.

Royals | Ben Zobrist making debut in LF

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:27:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Ben Zobrist is starting in left field and hitting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Thursday, July 30, in his debut with the Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist's ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) fantasy value is unlikely to change all that much with the Royals, although hitting in a better all-around lineup can't hurt. He's been hot lately, too, with 21 hits in 72 at-bats (.292) in July. Ride him while he's hot on FantasyScore, especially in hitter-friendly Toronto.

Royals | Jeremy Guthrie slapped around

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:17:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie allowed eight runs - seven earned - and 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings in a loss against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: The Indians were hitting just .211 against Guthrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in two outings this season, but teed off on him Wednesday. He has a decent 3.96 ERA in 10 home starts, he a dismal 7.66 ERA in 10 road outings. FantasyScore players need not bother with Guthrie outside of Kauffman Stadium.

Royals | Two more hits for Eric Hosmer

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:17:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer had a pair of doubles in four at-bats Wednesday, July 29, against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has hit safely in 11 straight games, hitting a robust .523 (23-for-44). He also had eight hits in the three-game set for the Indians, and is now hitting .429 (21-for-49) with five doubles, a triple, five homers and 19 RBIs against Cleveland pitching this season. FantasyScore owners will want to use him regardless of opponent right. But remember him when these teams tangle again Sept. 14-17 in Cleveland, and again Sept. 25-27 in K.C.

Royals | Salvador Perez resting

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 07:27:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 29, with C Drew Butera hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't a good option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain sitting out

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 07:26:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 29, with 1B Kendrys Morales moving up to the third place in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Morales ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has a tough matchup against Corey Kluber, whom he is 3-for-13 (.231) against in his career. Morales isn't a good start on FantasyScore today.

Royals | Ben Zobrist to make debut Thursday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:00:55 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist is expected to start and hit sixth in the batting order in his debut with the Royals Thursday, July 30, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what position Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will play Thursday, but the switch-hitter can play both left field and second base, which could decrease the fantasy value of both Jarrod Dyson and Omar Infante for the foreseeable future.

Royals | KC acquiring Ben Zobrist

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:37:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is being traded to the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, July 28, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely fill in in left field until Alex Gordon is back from the disabled list, and he can also play second base and spell the offensively challenged Omar Infante. The move probably doesn't affect Zobrist's fantasy value all that much, but it may hurt the value of Jarrod Dyson the most.
