Royals | Drew Butera draws a start

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:56:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Drew Butera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, June 30, with C Salvador Perez serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided everywhere while going up against one of the American League's best pitchers so far this season.

Royals | Alcides Escobar back Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:49:23 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar (finger) is back in the lineup and batting leadoff Tuesday, June 30, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) had a bruise on his index finger, so the injury couldn't be classified as anything serious. Go ahead and put him back in your FantasyScore lineup.

Royals | Joe Blanton has bottom drop out

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:22:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Joe Blanton allowed five runs and five hits with four walks over 2 2/3 innings in a loss Monday, June 29, against the Houston Astros. He had not walked any batters over his first two starts this season, entering with a 2-0 record and 1.73 ERA since his recall from Class AAA Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Blanton ($3,700; or 7.4% of cap) finally showed why he is such a risky play in FantasyScore despite the good results in his first two outings. There is a reason he was out of baseball in 2014, and Houston showed why.

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 | Eric Hosmer to miss a few games

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:56:04 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer (finger) is not expected to miss all of the games against the Houston Astros this week because of a finger injury.

Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Hosmer ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will need to be placed on the disabled list, so owners should monitor the situation to see when he will be back in the lineup. Kendrys Morales ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) likely will start at first base and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Jarrod Dyson receives start

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:12:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Jarrod Dyson will start in center field against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Monday, June 29, and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has done very well in limited playing time this month, hitting .409 with two RBI and three stolen bases. Owners on FantasyScore could consider him as a cheaper option but may also be able to find better options to use.

Royals | Eric Hosmer sitting out

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:11:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer (finger) is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Monday, June 29. 1B Kendrys Morales will start at first base and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is expected to miss a few games because of a finger injury. Owners should monitor the situation to see when he will be able to play. Morales ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has at least one hit in 11 straight games and is a sold starting option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Wade Davis nails down win

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 19:13:41 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis picked up his ninth save in as many chances, allowing one hit and striking out two in a 5-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Greg Holland had closed out back-to-back games, so it was likely just a day off for Holland. However, Davis is one of the top setup men in the majors this year, owning a 0.27 ERA and striking out more than a batter per inning. He should be owned in all but the shallowest of formats.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain not starting Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:30:42 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Sunday, June 28. OF Jarrod Dyson will play center field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting .389 in 18 at-bats this month and is 1-for-2 against Chavez in his career. His speed makes him an upside flier for FantasyScore owners looking for productive sources of salary cap relief.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain has hamstring issue

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 05:36:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) has a slight hamstring issue but hopes to play Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cain ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is on his way to career highs in most categories and is a midrange OF choice on FantasyScore when he's healthy.

Royals | Yordano Ventura rehab update

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 19:04:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (arm) is expected to make a rehab start for Class AAA Omaha Friday, June 26. He will throw approximately five innings or 75 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Ventura ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) could be activated from the disabled list to start against the Houston Astros next week. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first start back in order to insure he's completely healthy and able to pitch effectively.

Royals | Lorenzo Cain taking day off

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:51:04 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Jarrod Dyson is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has minimal intrigue on FantasyScore because of his speed, but the light-hitting outfielder struggles to get on base, and we don't recommend him tonight with a lefty-on-lefty matchup.

Royals | KC interested in Mike Leake

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 06:08:59 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake has drawn trade interest from the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) would highly benefit from exiting Great American Ball Park. Opposing hitters hit just .246 off him, but he was allowed 13 home runs, which contributes to his 4.01 ERA. He has a 3.00 ERA and a .199 opponents' batting average on the road while those numbers blimp to 5.18 and .293 at home. He's a good road starter on FantasyScore at a midrange price.

Royals | Johnny Cueto attracting KC's interest

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 06:07:57 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto has drawn trade interest from the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) has groomed into an ace in a hitter's park, and he would transition just fine to the American League. His latest start was pushed back to give him extra rest after allowing seven earned runs in his last two starts. He's still a high-end option on FantasyScore.

Royals | KC looking at trade options

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:36:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist and Cincinnati Reds SPs Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake are on the radar of the Kansas City Chiefs as the trade deadline nears this summer, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: None of these three players would likely see a drastic boost in their fantasy value with a move to KC, although Cueto and Leake would definitely be a bit more attractive throwing pitches in a pitching-friendly environment instead of Great American Ballpark. AL-only owners definitely should take notice of potential NL targets crossing leagues this summer. Save your FAAB money.
