Royals | Eric Hosmer exits

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 13:58:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer (hand) left the game Wednesday, July 23, with "decreased grip strength in his hand," according to a club announcement.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps too soon for him to come back -- Billy Butler took his place at the plate. Stay tuned for more on Hosmer, but this doesn't sound like something he'll recover from quickly. He might need a few more days off and perhaps a DL trip.

Royals | Billy Butler sitting

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 08:25:38 -0700

Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler (rest) is receiving the day off Wednesday, July 23. INF Danny Valencia is replacing him as designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Deactivate Butler in your daily transactions. Though Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana has been tough this year, Valencia, a platoon tool, could be a sneaky daily play against the southpaw.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 22:24:34 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer (hand) was sidelined for the second straight game Tuesday, July 22, against the Chicago White Sox.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 14:32:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain (rest) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 22. Manager Ned Yost said he wants Cain to play tomorrow's day game against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana, who is a left-handed pitcher.

Royals | Jason Vargas update

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 14:27:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas (appendix) is unlikely to start Sunday, July 27, according to manager Ned Yost. Yost said Vargas still feels awkward when he throws.

Fantasy Tip: Vargas has put together a solid season to date, and he appears close to returning. He is a viable option in most leagues, at least in favorable matchups.

Royals | Eric Hosmer scratched

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 19:13:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer (hand) was scratched from the lineup Monday, July 21, against the Chicago White Sox due to a right hand contusion.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer came into the day with the longest active hitting streak in the majors at 16 games, four more than any other player in the league. The severity of this injury is not yet known, but those fantasy owners in leagues which allow daily moves should reserve him until he can return and prove his health in one full game without any setbacks.

Royals | Billy Butler hoping to stay in KC

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 19:12:27 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Billy Butler said Monday, July 21, that he is willing to renegotiate his deal for next season in order to say with the team. He has a club option for 2015 for $12.5 million, and since he has struggled this season it seems unlikely the team will not exercise that option. The buyout for the deal is $1 million. "If the option doesn't work, I'd be more than happy to renegotiate in any type of way. I've always said that," Butler said.
