Kansas City Royals news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:26:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rios ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should be back in the lineup in the next couple of days, but with just two homers and 22 RBI in 300 at-bats this season, he doesn't have much value at FantasyScore.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:03:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gordon ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is 10-for-25 with a home run and four RBIs in seven rehab games for Class AAA Omaha. He should be owned in all fantasy formats, although we won't blame FantasyScore owners for waiting a game or two following his return before using him again in their lineups.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:06:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cabrera ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. The shortstop is scorching hot with a .374/.419/.589 slash line and 24 runs over 28 games since the All-Star break. Beckham ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has hit four of his six home runs against lefties, and he owns a .532 slugging percentage against them. He checks out a potential dice roll for FantasyScore players Sunday.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:55:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Perez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. The backstop is having a nice month with three home runs, 13 RBI and a .274 batting average, and seasonal owners should be rewarded with a strong finish to the season. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a .537 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players shouldn't count on him Sunday.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:41:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Volquez ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) went 2-2 with a 3.43 ERA in six starts during the month of August. His next outing will come against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, Sept. 3.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:49:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This isn't shocking news, as it appeared likely, but it is still nice to hear confirmation from the skipper. Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been a force since joining the Royals with a .337/.426/.531 slash line over 26 games. Gordon ($3,600, 7.2% of cap), meanwhile, is currently rehabbing his groin injury in the minors and could join the Royals sooner than later, but it will likely correlate with rosters expanding in September. Gordon should be owned in all seasonal leagues.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:10:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With the win, Ventura ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) improved to 5-0 in his last seven starts and has allowed just three runs over his last 25 innings. He will make his next start against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 09:44:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Morales ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a .304-2-15 line and is a good start against Chris Tillman on FantasyScore.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:17:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Orlando ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) doesn't really do anything that stands out for fantasy owners, and his low lineup positioning doesn't make him attractive at all on FantasyScore tonight.
Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:08:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Holland hasn't been at his best this year, but he's in no danger of losing the closing role unless he has to go on the DL. Keep tabs on his status for the rest of the week. If he's unavailable tonight or in subsequent games this week, the best bet to see save chances would be Wade Davis. Davis is already valuable in the majority of fantasy leagues because of his excellent numbers in a setup role.
Sun, 23 Aug 2015 17:17:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Moustakas ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) finished with two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored in three games against the Red Sox, and he may finally be breaking out of his two-month slump. If he draws a friendly matchup, he could be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.
Sun, 23 Aug 2015 09:25:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is receiving a day off after starting several games in a row. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much in his limited playing time this season and should be avoided by owners.
Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:00:00 -0700
Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist, who is eligible to become a free agent after the season, said he would like to return to the club. "Certainly, this had been one of the teams I liked the look of," he said. "And now, since I've been here, it's a place I want to stay longer. Being here has certainly done nothing but make this (team) go up on my list."
Fantasy Tip: In 20 games since being acquired from the A's, Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is batting .351 with four home runs and 13 RBIs in 74 at-bats, including a .389 mark during the month of August. FantasyScore owners should continue using him while he's swinging a hot bat.
Fri, 21 Aug 2015 18:13:18 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) had allowed six runs combined in his previous four starts for the Royals and experienced his worst outing since being traded to the American League Friday. He will look to bounce back in his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Aug. 26.
Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:13:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Infante ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) last played Sunday, Aug. 16, and currently sports a disappointing 3-for-45 run dating back to Friday, July 31. He is a low-end fantasy option in all formats, and FantasyScore players should aim higher or hunt for better value in his price range.
