Sat, 25 Apr 2015 14:48:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cain ($2,700, 5.4% of your cap) will continue to be a matchup play on FantasyScore until his hearing.
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 14:48:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Volquez ($3,700, 7.4% of your cap) will continue to be a matchup play on FantasyScore until a hearing takes place.
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 14:47:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ventura's ($5,700, 11.4% of your cap) status is unaffected until a hearing takes place. He's a solid start on FantasyScore.
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 10:08:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Herrera could keep playing if he decides to appeal the suspension. He has yet to allow a run through seven appearances this season.
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:33:53 -0700
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.
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:28:54 -0700
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.
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:21:18 -0700
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.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:13:25 -0700
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.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:12:14 -0700
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.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:07:40 -0700
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.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:32:24 -0700
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.

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.

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.

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.
Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:57:49 -0700
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (hamstring, groin) is not expected to require a stint on the disabled list, according to manager Ned Yost. Yost noted Infante could be available in an emergency Tuesday, April 21.
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Infante to suit up for the game Tuesday, either. In the majority of seasonal leagues you can replace Infante with a healthy bat. Continue to check back for updates on when Infante will draw back into the lineup. Christian Colon ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) figures to see the majority of starts at the keystone, but he is a low-end option for FantasyScore players.
